Dranks on T-Pain!

Dranks on T-Pain, or the bartender! Ha, see what I did there? 

Anyway, I digress. 

This morning, the legendary rapper was announced as this year’s host of the iHeartRadio Music Awards, which will take place on March 14. 

“The blessings keep rolling in. I am grateful and honored to host this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards,” the ‘Bartender’ singer said in a statement. “The past two weeks have been incredible and the run continues. Thank you to everyone for all of the love and support. A special thanks to the iHeart team and Fox for having me.”

Alongside T-Pain, Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, Hasley, John Legend and Kacey Musgraves will take to the stage to perform their latest hits! 


The R&B singer has been enjoying the limelight recently after releasing his new album, 1UP, in February. The banging record features collaborations with rappers like Lil Wayne, O.T. Genasis and Flipp Dinero. His most body of work feels as though it could have come from his 2005 debut album, Rappa Ternt Sanga.
