T-Pain Says Michael Jackson Requested "P.Y.T." Remake

Auto-tune king, T-Pain addresses critics via Twitter, saying he got the co-sign from Quincy Jones and the late Michael Jackson.

Legendary producer and composer Quincy Jones enlisted platinum-selling artists T-Pain and Robin Thicke to remake Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T.” for his upcoming album, Q: Soul Bassa Nostra. Akon, Ludacris, Three 6 Mafia, Talib Kweli and a host of others are slated to be on the album as well, but it was T-Pain’s reinterpretation of the 1983 classic that drew the ire of most fans.

Soon after the song was posted online, comments surfaced saying T-Pain ruined the Jackson classic. Tuesday, T-Pain took to Twitter and defended himself, saying not only did Quincy Jones approve of his remake, but Michael Jackson requested the reworking before his 2009 death.

For all the ppl that hate mr for ruining pyt just stop listening to my shit. But if Quincy jones tell you he http://tl.gd/6pjdgi13 hours ago via TwitBird

“But if Quincy Jones tell you he want you to do something no matter how much shot [sic] you know ur gonna get from the dumb asses in the world, you god damn do it,” T-Pain stated. He also called out critics for being jealous and disrespectful, in a response so long it needed to be finished via TweetLonger.

For his part, Jones defended his picks in March, during an interview with Billboard magazine, saying, “Each artist picked a song that resonated with them for different reasons. I am honored that everyone wanted to be a part of this celebration of these songs. They all made them their own and knocked them out of the park.”

    if quincy jones wants to pay tribute to michael jackson by remaking one of his songs, he should consider getting someone who actually has talent and doesn't rely on fucking auto tune

      you are such an ignorant wanker.. autotune isn't just an effect that people use to make themselves sound better!! its like art, there isn't just one style.. its a style of music u fuckin twat.. if you dont like it then dont listen to it you stupid yank.. he doesnt use it because he cant sing.. you have to have a good voice for autotune to sound good why dont you give it a try and see how shit you sound on it!!.. example kanye cannot sing go and listen to 808s n heartbreak.. the autotune is shit.. listen to t-pain - chopped n skrewed.. autotune sounds wikid!!..
