Exclusive: T-Pain Says Chris Brown’s ‘Heartbreak’ Is His Favorite Album of 2017

T-Pain hearts Chris Brown’s Heartbreak on a Full Moon.

During a recent visit to Rap-Up HQ, the Rappa Ternt Sanga didn’t have to think too long to explain why Breezy’s 45-song double album was his favorite of the year. “My favorite album of 2017 would probably be Heartbreak on a Full Moon,” he said. “For sure. Chris Brown, definitely, guaranteed.”

Brown’s prolific output helped make that decision easy for Pain. “There’s enough to pick from,” he explained. “You’re gonna like most of that album, but even if you don’t like most of the album, you’re gonna like an album’s worth of that album. There’s for sure 12 songs on there that you’ll like. You can’t go wrong. You cannot not like a big chunk of 45 songs. You’re gonna like an album’s worth of it so there’s no way to lose on that album. There’s no way to not like that album.”

Teddy and Breezy have close ties, including past collaborations like “Best Love Song,” “Bring It Back,” “Classic You,” and “Get Down.” In 2011, T-Pain also explained their bond during another interview with Rap-Up. “I think my relationship with Chris is better than anybody else,” he said. “I don’t think I chill or bond with any other artist like that.”

T-Pain has big plans for 2018. After releasing his final album on RCA with OBLiVION, the Thr33 Ringz ringmaster is excited for the new year. “2018, you can expect not a lot, not a ton of T-Pain, but a good amount,” he said. “More than you’ve seen lately. There’s a lot of things in the plans.”

Those plans include three tours and two more albums, including the long-awaited Stoicville: The Phoenix. “Stoicville is like a passion project for me,” he said. “I didn’t put out Stoicville because the label wouldn’t have treated it right.”
