Stream T-Pain’s New Album ‘Oblivion’

It’s been nearly seven years since T-Pain released an album. The ‘rapper ternt sanga’ makes a comeback with his new project, Oblivion, via RCA Records.

The 16-track LP includes guest appearances from Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Ne-Yo, Tiffany Evans, Wale and more. Tory Lanez was originally supposed to be on the album but their song wasn’t able to get cleared in time. Fans shouldn’t worry, though. T-Pain has promised the song will be out in a matter of days.

“The Tory feature didn’t get cleared in time so it was either leave that song off and release it a few days later or push the album back until that one song gets cleared,” he tweeted. “Obviously I’ve pushed enough dates back lol. So enjoy the other 16 trax until we get that straight.”

T-Pain has confirmed in several interviews that Oblivion will be his last album on RCA Records before he takes the independent route — which could definitely be a great move for him. In 2011, he released Revolver, which debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard 200.

Mariah Releases Video for Holiday Song ‘The Star’

Mariah Carey has release visual for her new holiday single “The Star” from the soundtrack of the animated film of the same name. Directed by Jeb Hardwick, the video features Carey looking fabulous in a shiny dress as she sings in front of festive backdrops. Her twins Roc and Roe also make a cameo in the video.

In The Star, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become unlikely heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.

The film hits theaters this Friday (Nov. 17) and includes voice overs from Carey, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Steven Yeun, Christopher Plummer and more.

“The Star” isn’t Carey’s only new Christmas song. Last week, she released “Lil Snowman” from the soundtrack for her animated film, All I Want For Christmas Is You, available now.
