NEW MUSIC: TRINA FEAT. T-PAIN “LEAN ON ME”- Bill Withers Cringing…

The Life As Shay Report:

We got a couple of new songs on the scene of the weekend but I wanted to feature this particular one. Partly because I haven’t heard from Trina in a long time and partly because I wanted to see if T-Pain had changed his sound at all? You know for a period of time he struggled with the success of Future because he had made a substantial impact using auto-tune, same as T-Pain. Only thing is, T-Pain didn’t invent auto-tune so it’s kinda hard to bully someone else out of using it.The song samples Bill Wither‘s “Lean on Me” but it’s a different lean they are talking about than what Bill was going for in the original! I think I heard him roll cringe…

The song is talking about being wasted and gone off the patron and needing someone to lean on and drive you home hahaha! It makes me laugh. I can’t lie, a lot of stuff that Trina does music-wise is corny to me and this one is too. BUT, if they get the right DJ’s behind them it could really be a club hit. Especially in Vegas. I don’t know if I want to dance or laugh, confused!
