Atlantic Records

Here’s a roundup of new music from T-Pain, Kehlani, 21 Savage, and more.

The multi-talented T-Pain has returned with a remix to his classic 2007 hit, “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin),” featuring Kehlani. 

The sequel, titled, “I Like Dat,” blends T-Pain’s signature rap-singing vocals with Kehlani’s smooth West Coast vibe as she takes on the female perspective of the track. 

“Ooh, ooh-ooh, I’m just buying drank, she doin’ too much, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh (Ooh yeah) I like that, she don’t even need me to buy her nothin,” T-Pain sings on the chorus before Kehlani’s verse about being the “pilot” of her own plane. 

She sings, “It’s real bossed up, fly [ish] / I ain’t the passenger, I’m the pilot / You could hop in but you ain’t drivin’ / And all I need is somebody to ride with / ‘Cause I’m a go getta, oh-oh.”

Twitter fans are declaring “Like Dat” as their new summer anthem with many calling it a “banger.” 

“Listening to that new Kehlani and T-Pain got me ready to shake my groove thang and turn this summer into a goofy movie,” one fan tweeted. Another said, “Kehlani and T-Pain thank you for this BOP OF A SONG.”

Meanwhile, 21 Savage dropped more than one song on his new EP, Spiral, named after the film, Spiral: The Book of Saw. The four-song EP features Savage’s horrifying track, “Spiral,” and guest appearances from rappers Young Nudy, Gunna, Young Thug and London singer Millie Go Lightly.

21 Savage served as executive producer of the music of the first film from the rebooted Saw franchise. Spiral: The Book of Saw is out now, starring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson.
