[October 20, 2011 – New York, NY] – T-Pain is at it again.  After landing another platinum selling radio hit single with “Best Love Song,” featuring Chris Brown, followed by quickly rising single “5 O’Clock,” featuring Wiz Khalifa and Lily Allen, singer/rapper/producer T-Pain announced earlier this week that RCA Records will release his fourth studio album rEVOLVEr on December 6, 2011.  The follow-up to his 2008 platinum-plus selling album Thr33 Ringz, rEVOLVEr (visually spelled as rEVOLVEr for a reason), demonstrates the evolution of T-Pain as an artist.

“rEVOLVEr is drawn from seven albums’ worth of material,” said T-Pain.  “There are so many different things on this album.  I couldn’t settle on what I wanted to include, but the final result I think will really hit all of my fans and different audiences,” says the singer.  “I’ve developed a new audience from the Taylor Swift stuff, the Bud Light and Toshiba commercials, the T-Pain Mic and App.  There is music for everyone on this album, but definitely still classic T-Pain at the same time.”

It’s evident T-Pain has another hit on his hands with the album’s second single, “5 O’Clock,” which is currently Billboard’s Hot 100 Greatest Gainer, jumping from #62 to #25 in its third week on the charts.  The single also catapulted up the Hot Digital Songs chart from #47 to #16. While the single continues to climb the charts, it’s also receiving critical acclaim.  Pop Crush bestowed a 3 ½ star out of 4 rating and declared “‘5 O’Clock’ is a strong track with a refreshingly different sound than most of what is currently being played on the radio,” while Perez Hilton gushed “We are obsessed with this song!!!!!!!!!!!! So. Damn. Good.”

Tallahassee, Florida native, T-Pain burst on the scene in 2005 with his debut Rappa Ternt Sanga and the unforgettable singles “I’m Sprung” and “I’m N Luv (Wit A Stripper),” a song that maintains the title of the highest selling ring tone. T-Pain continued his success with his sophomore effort Epiphany in 2007, which spawned the #1 airplay record of the year, “Buy U a Drank” (featuring Yung Joc) and the ubiquitous #1 hit “Bartender.” In 2008, T-Pain took home his first Grammy for Best Rap Song (for “Good Life”) with Kanye West, which also garnered a BET Award, where he was the most nominated artist of the night.  Since the release of his debut album, T-Pain has produced and featured on over 45 top ten songs and 16 #1’s.  He has won many awards including two Grammys and continues to expand his brand with fresh and exciting ideas like the innovative I Am T-Pain mobile app, which has now spawned the I Am T-Pain Mic and T-Pain Effect.
