T-Pain, whose real name is Faheem Rashad Najm is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, and record producer. Throughout his career as a singer, he is best known for using Auto-Tune pitch correction effect. The Auto-Tune king and producer of constant bangers delivered lots of hits during the late 2000s which took him to the top of the chart. A report by MTV provides many of the facts used in this article.

Recently, he revealed on Twitter that two of his songs have been wrongly sung for the last 10 years. According to the Florida [VIDEO] singer, the lyrics to “#Buy U A Drink” and “All I Do Is Win” are not what people think they are.

It was very clear that people have not been listening closely enough to his music.

What the lyrics actually say and what people think they are

Well, maybe everything you know about T-Pain's early hits is a lie. According to the Auto-Tune God, the lyrics to his Billboard chart-topping single “Buy U A Drank,” which has been a certified club anthem for 10 years, actually says, “Ima buy you a drank (and then) Ima take you home with me" instead of “Ima buy you a drank (Ooowee) Ima take you home with me." The "Ooowee" is actually an elongated "And then." As if that wasn’t enough, the #Florida singer also broke down the lyrics to “All I Do Is Win,” in one of his recent tweets explaining that the chorus is “Everybody hands go up, and they stay there, and they say yeah.” People have been singing, “Everybody's hands go up, and they stay there, and they stay there” but in reality, the second “and they stay there” is actually “and they say yeah.” The unexpected music lesson and lyric clarification left a lot of people with various thoughts.
