T-Pain Sings “Bartender” A Capella, Acts Out Emoji: Watch!

We’re sprung! T-Pain recently stopped by Us Weekly‘s New York City headquarters and charmed in a hilarious round of Truth or Dare.

The Grammy winner, who has been promoting his new mixtape The Iron Way, took a little time to have some fun with the childhood game. Known for his trademark use of auto-tune, T-Pain started the round with one particularly daring dare. 

The “I’m Sprung” singer turned off the electric adjustments and sang a capella for Us, performing his 2007 hit single “Bartender.” Grooving as he sang, T-Pain gave an impressive rendition, crooning, “Broke up with my girl last night so I went to the club / Put on a fresh white suit and the Mini Coop’ sittin on dubs / I’m just lookin for somebody to talk to and show me some love.”

T-Pain continued his dares, stepping up to the challenge of acting out his favorite emoji. He chose the “smiling poop,” taking off his glasses to become the text message accessory. 

After his impromptu performances, T-Pain got honest in the Truth section. In one bold moment, he said Jamie Foxx sounds better than Kanye West with auto-tune, as seen in the artists’ “Blame It” and “Heartless,” respectively. He also sounded off on Jay Z, and whether he’s actually ever been in love with a stripper.
