As expected, American recording artist and songwriter T-Pain played to a completely packed Ottawa Bluesfest crowd. He was one of the most anticipated acts on the bill, and I haven’t seen anything close to the response he received, this year or last. Easily the most energetic artist we’ve encountered since starting our HipHopCanada/CapCityHipHop Bluesfest coverage a few years ago.
Teddy starts out with song “Ringleader Man,” then proceeded to perform some of his biggest hits like “I’m In Love With A Striper,” the Yung Joc-assisted “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” (without Joc) as well as a bunch of other notable records.
T-Pain surprised the real fans that follow him throughout his career with all four or five songs that he sung on the TV show The Masked Singer, is an American reality singing competition television series adapted from the South Korean format King of Mask Singer. The Masked Singer premiered on Fox on January 2, 2019, and is hosted by Nick Cannon. T-Pain was the winner of Season 1.
His set drew out fans of all ages, which was a testament to the impact his career has made since first making his debut with Rappa Ternt Sanga back in 2005.
T-Pain is currently promoting his 1UP album which features Tory Lanez on “Getcha Roll On.” The album was released on Feb. 27, 2019 and peaked at No. 115 on the US Billboard 200.
