T-Pain vows to 'never use Auto-Tune again'
It's a salacious headline, isn't it? And it's the subject of a press release that went out today on behalf of the Top 40 digitized crooner whose extensive and unabashed use of the vocal effect has been making pop music more and more robotic over the past few years.
This proclamation doesn't quite mean that Mr. Pain has finally taken Jay-Z's single "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)" to heart. Naw, he just invented his own vocal manipulation called the T-Pain Effect. Psych!
"I vow right here, right now, to never use Auto-Tune again," he says. "I'm onto something that I think is bigger and better called The T-Pain Effect."
