T-Pain and Chris Brown to Drop New Single 'Wake Up Dead'
T-Pain and Chris Brown are back again.
Just weeks after teasing the track, the two are set to release their new collaboration “Wake Up Dead” this Friday, April 24. T-Pain revealed the illustrated cover art on Instagram, writing, “Let’s get started………. 4/24 ..”
The song is extra special to T-Pain, whose wife Amber Najm helped him write it. “@panpan2211 helped me write this, so this one super special to me,” he added.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting a reunion from the frequent collaborators. T-Pain first played a snippet of the song on Instagram Live earlier this month. Their latest collaboration finds them singing over an acoustic R&B melody reminiscent of their early 2000s hits.
“Oh my gosh, you tryna kill me in my sleep / Rough sex makin’ you my enemy,” sings Chris. “Can I be honest, baby? / I kinda like the fact that you kinda crazy / Yeah, you bipolar just like me / That ain’t a problem, baby.”
The two have recorded numerous collaborations throughout the years including “Best Love Song,” “Freeze,” “Classic You,” and “Kiss Kiss,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007.
During a 2011 interview with Rap-Up, T-Pain opened up about his close bond with Breezy. “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.”
