T-Pain Reveals Aaliyah Collaboration on ‘The Iron Way’ Mixtape

Missing T-Pain perform a FORTY-TWO SONG SET is essentially the only reason I’d be salty at not attending SXSW this year. His upcoming mixtape The Iron Way (which drops this Friday, March 27th) will more than make up for it, though.

Speaking to VIBE while in Austin, TX, he talks the mixtape and how it will boast features from Bun B, Big K.R.I.T., and – surprisingly – Aaliyah.

“I actually have Aaliyah on a song,” T-Pain reveals to VIBE. “These are vocals people never heard before. They were actually doing an Aaliyah album a few years ago. They told me do two songs and I could pick one to keep.”

The song, “Girlfriends,” will undoubtedly be one of the more anticipated songs on The Iron Way, and I personally can’t wait for the project to drop. Watch the interview below.
