Lil Wayne backed up partner-in-crime T-Pain and stamped his co-sign on Auto-Tune by using the software in his Hot 100 No. 1 “Lollipop.”
Ke$ha has heralded the pop return of obvious Auto-Tune in recent years, first with her debut single “TiK Tok” and most recently with “Blow,” whose chorus would certainly falter from a lack of Auto-Tune.
“One More Time”
Daft Punk’s 2000 single “One More Time” is certainly not the French DJ duo’s only foray into Auto-Tune, but it might just be their best. The tuned and compressed vocals from DJ/producer Romanthony seem an almost natural fit alongside heavy dance beats on the “Discovery” single.
“Boom Boom Pow”
The Black Eyed Peas
No surprise here, as will.i.am will try (almost) anything once. The mega-successful pop group gave a nod to Auto-Tune with the Hot 100 No. 1 hit, “Boom Boom Pow.”
“Sensual Seduction” (unedited as “Sexual Eruption”) captures Snoop in a retro ’80s ‘fit, singing into a talk box. A perfect celebration to Auto-Tune.
