FKA Twigs has changed T-Pain‘s life. In a new interview with Fader, T-Pain reveals the powerful effect the British musician has had on him, saying “she opened my eyes.” T-Pain’s praise doesn’t stop there, going on to detail his experience working with the exciting artist:
It’s been great, man. It’s been a whole different experience. Twigs actually changed my whole perspective on the music industry. She made me proud of myself again, the way she was talking to me.
When asked specifically what she said, T-Pain responds:
I told her I wanted to do some stuff, like videos and put out some songs. But I was like, “I can’t.” She was like “Why?” I was like, “You know, the label and stuff like that.” She was like “Why? Do they control you? How are they controlling you? What, are they gonna sue you? Cause that’s their money, too.” (Laughs) She opened my eyes. I felt like I was brainwashed and she came and reset me. Like, “Why am I not putting out songs? Why am I not doing this?” Cause every time I see her, there’s a new video, a new song. I’m like, “Your label’s okay with that?” And she’s like, “I don’t give a fuck about that.” (laughs). It changed my life, you know, the way she looked at things, and I tell her every time I talk to her. She changed my life. It was amazing.
