T-Pain Battles Chris Brown in ‘Best Love Song’ — Video
T-Pain‘s favorite love song is Gnarls Barkley‘s ‘Blind Mary.’ But when it comes to making love he prefers the “you know, normal stuff” like N.W.A. and 2 Live Crew albums. Not exactly your usual slow jam for the bedside, but then again we’re talking about T-Pain — the party-loving nappyhead who crept into peoples’ hearts asking if he could ‘Buy U A Drank’ through his Auto-Tune crooning.
As he prepares his oft-delayed fourth album ‘rEVOLVEr,’ T-Pain is looking to creep into more hearts with the Edgar Wright-directed video for his latest single, ‘Best Love Song’ featuring Chris Brown. This isn’t the first time Breezy and T-Pain have put an affaire de coeur to music. In 2007, the two teamed up for Brown’s double platinum hit ‘Kiss Kiss.’ But despite the competitive nature between the two R&B artists in the ‘Best Love Song’ video, Pain admits that when it comes to love songs, Brown is the best man for the job.
“If I’m making the best love song I can ever make, I gotta get the person that I love all of their love songs,” he says of teaming with Brown again. “You know how he writes all the melodies — what better person to get than the one you got to love when it comes to things like that.”
While ‘rEVOLVEr’ still doesn’t have a definite release date, and has already been preceded by the singles ‘Take Your Shirt Off’ and ‘Reverse Cowgirl,’ Pain promises that the album will be out by the end of the year.
“This is gonna be considered the first single,” he says of ‘Best Love Song.’ “I keep saying that about every song I’m dropping, but I feel like this has the power.”
