A few months ago, T-Pain recruited Kehlani for their collaboration track “I Like Dat,” the song that expertly samples his own “Buy U A Drank” classic record. He shortly afterwards decided the song can get even better than it already was and tapped in with BIA for the official remix. He now returned over the weekend with his latest offering “I’m Cool With That.” On the song, T-Pain croons over some soft guitar strums as he narrates a story of letting go:
If you really need to leave in the middle of the night (Of the night), alright (Alright) I’ll be sittin’ in the bed, waitin’ on you to come back (Come back), yeah (Yeah)/ You can leave me on read, just know that you wanted me to fall back, I’m not tryna text you and stress, ‘cause you don’t even need all that
Who’s that dude? (That dude), it’s cool (Cool) if he’s just a friend (Friend), obviously (Obviously)/ You can do (Do), what you want to (What you want to) ’cause in the end it’s not botherin’ me
An interesting fact about how this record came about is that T-Pain concocted it via Twitch. “Thank you to my @twitch community for sticking it out with me all these years, we really made this record from scratch on live stream!” he says about the record. “Stream the song anywhere you listen to music.”
Prior to the aforementioned “I Like Dat,” T-Pain teamed up with Chris Brown for “Wake Up Dead” and addressed civil unrest with “Wake Up” back in 2020 — the same year also saw him take part in an early “Verzuz” matchup with Lil Jon. His sixth and last official LP 1UP made landfall in 2019.
