Why is he so famous?
T-Pain’s second and third album became #1 in the Billboard R & B chart quickly making the rapper famous. From then on, people recognized him as one of the reigning kings of hip hop. Almost immedietly a lot of the top artists wanted to collaborate with him and the doors were finally open to even great success.
He got featured on the first season of The Masked Singer. Despite the star-studded lineup of artists involved in the TV show, he walked away as the victor. Some of the songs he sang at the show included “This is How We Do It”, “American Woman”, and “Stay With Me.” The show also featured Tori Spelling and LaToya Jackson.
He also appeared in the movie Fast and Furious 7 as himself. The movie grossed over $1 billion dollars and was seen by millions of people adding to his fame. He also appeared in the movie “Liquor Store” as a lottery outlet employee. He had a few lines in that movie and made a great impression in the little screen time that he was given.
He then collaborated with movie star Jamie Foxx in the song “Blame It.” The song has several versions but all of them has T-Pain singing the chorus. It is a song about letting loose and getting drunk on the weekend. Another song T-Pain is known for is “I’m in Love with a Stripper” featuring artists like TI, R. Kelly, and Paul Wall. It is a long song that tells the story of how rappers always fall for strippers at some point in their life.
What makes him so successful?
T-Pain is so successful because of his chart-topping songs. His classic-soul-singer voice is what makes him so unique and memorable.

He also leverages technology like the use of Auto-tune which, originally used to correct pitch, is used by T-Pain to create a new and bewitching instrument.
One of the reasons T-Pain has been so successful is because of collaboration with other top artists. He had a much-anticipated collaboration album with Lil Wayne called T-Wayne. Perhaps, one of their best duets is “I Can’t Believe It” which tells the story about T-Pain taking girls anywhere in the world. The self-proclaimed king of R&B, R. Kelly also collaborated with T-Pain. Their most well-known collaboration is Same Girl Remix with Usher. The song has outstanding lyrics about three guys finding out that they are in love with the same girl.
Another one of their collaborations is “I’m a Flirt” which is a song about moving your girls away from R. Kelly every time he enters a night club. One awesome collaboration not a lot of people know about is his hit with Ne-Yo and Trey Songz called “The Way You Move.” It is a very rare rare track with three R&B’s hip-hop genres coming together for one gigantic song.
