With his signature auto-tune and penchant for strip clubs in tow, T-Pain returns with the twerk-ready, B.o.B-featured, "Up Down (Do This All Day)." The Mike WiLL Made It-produced cut is the lead single off his upcoming "Stoicville: The Phoenix." It's his first album since 2011’s "Revolver" peaked at No. 7 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. With "Up Down," T-Pain looks to return to the top 10 of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, having last reached the region as a lead artist in 2011 with the Lily Allen and Wiz Khalifa-assisted "5 O’Clock" (No. 9 peak).
The Clipse reunite on No Malice’s "Shame the Devil" off of his upcoming, religious-tinged "Hear Ye Him" (August 18). After releasing four top 10 R&B/Hip-Hop Albums between 2002 and 2009, the rap duo announced they were parting ways to work on solo projects in 2010. Younger brother, Pusha T, signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music and released a couple of critically-acclaimed mixtapes to gear up for the release of his solo debut "My Name Is My Name,” due by year’s end. No Malice experienced a religious awakening and penned a memoir in 2011 titled "Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind & Naked" before returning his attention to music.
