Back in February, T-Pain released his latest full-length studio album, 1UP. T-Pain’s first official LP in over two years, 1UP delivered 12 new tracks to listeners, including collaborations with Lil Wayne, Boosie Badazz, Tory Lanez, Flipp Dinero, O.T. Genasis and more. Now, the trailblazing hitmaker is linking up with G-Eazy for a new single known as “Girlfriend.” “Girlfriend” features production by Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood‘s A1 and is notable for being the first time that T-Pain and G-Eazy have connected on wax.

“I needed something to set myself apart, while still being able to use my harmony and turn my voice into an instrument,” T-Pain explained to Genius earlier this year, opening up about his choice to use Autotune. “Basically, I saw my songs at the time as instrumentals, even with my vocals on it. I heard it on a Jennifer Lopez song. It was a Dark Child remix of ‘If You Had My Love.’”

“I did all of ‘em for free and all I wanted you to do was get back on my shit, that’s it. I just wanted an even swap, ’cause I was going to charge you just as much as you charge me,” T-Pain added, moving on to a discussion of his first memorable features. “Then nothing was reciprocated, you know what I’m saying? But, even if I got somebody to even try to be on the song, they would come back and charge.”
