As it turns out, T-Pain‘s hit “I’m ‘N Luv (Wit A Stripper)” was one big, yet highly successful joke.
The hitmaker shared the story of how the song came to be while appearing on the Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast.
“My homeboy was tryna save strippers in the club,” he said. “The song was a joke. I was literally making fun of him… We was just in the studio [messing] around and Big Boi saying it was dope and I said yep.”
“I’m ‘N Luv (Wit A Stripper)” was released in 2005 and is one of T-Pain’s biggest hits. It peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and number three on the US Rhythmic charts.
