T-Pain Talks Sharing Stage With Slash, Wants to Work With Carrie Underwood Next
The 52nd Grammy Awards had their fair share of all-star collaborations: Elton John shared a piano with Lady Gaga; Taylor Swift sang beside Fleetwood Mac‘s Stevie Nicks; Drake, Eminem, Lil Wayne performed ‘Forever’ with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. But, perhaps the most interesting performance of the evening was the hip-hop, R&B and rock mash-up between Jamie Foxx, T-Pain, producer/beat boxer Doug E. Fresh and legendary guitarist Slash on Foxx’s ‘Blame It.’
“It’s fun to work with Slash,” T-Pain told the BoomBox following his Grammy performance, “but kind of embarrassing because no one knows who I am. But, I think it’s cool as f—.” While only a few minutes had flown by since the high-energy performance, T-Pain already had his mind set on his next collaboration. “Next person I want to work with, and I won’t work with anyone else until I get her, is Carrie Underwood. Everyone else can suck it until I get to Carrie.” Down boy!
