T-Pain, the rapper who popularized the use of autotune technology, is putting out a covers album, and among the tracks he is covering is a Black Sabbath song.
This new covers album is titled On Top Of The Covers, and along with a Black Sabbath cover, T-Pain will also be covering music by Journey, Sam Cook, and Frank Sinatra (among others).
Speaking about the album, T-Pain shares the following:
“This covers album has been years in the making. I started recording this right after I won The Masked Singer.
“It got put on hold for a bit but now that I’m independent, I’m able to do whatever I want to do through Nappy Boy Entertainment and this is something I’ve felt strongly about for a long time.
“These songs are not what you’d expect when you hear that T–Pain is doing a covers album and that is what I think is cool about it.”
So what specific Black Sabbath song is T-Pain covering? Well, it is none other than “War Pigs.”
Originally released in 1970 and part of the band’s album Paranoid, “War Pigs” is one of the most iconic songs to come from Black Sabbath, and it will be super cool to hear what T-Pain’s cover will sound like.
