Nappy Boy CEO and Konvict artist, T-Pain, has decided to ditch auto-tune, not to please fans but to give praise.
T-Pain announced in an interview with MySpace Music that his fifth studio album which will be released after “RevolveR” will be a Christian pop album.
“A lot of people don’t know this about me,” he said, “but I am a deeply spiritual person. Dude, I go to church just as much as I go to the strip club. That’s saying something.”
The album is tentatively titled “Even Heaven Got a VIP” and will be released on September 9 under his Jive/Nappy Boy umbrella.
The album will be so different that the Nappy Boy president is also shelving his signature Auto-Tune.
“Once that guy from ‘Saturday Night Live’ started using it, I called on God. I was like, ‘Lord, you have to help me, who is this dude!?’,” he said referring to his viral hit “I’m on a Boat” with Andy Samberg.

“I know this album might surprise people, but I am a sensitive guy. I don’t sit just around and watch ‘Scarface’ and drink Henny all day. In fact, I just got through watching ‘The Notebook’. You ever seen that movie? That sh@t is beautiful.”
