Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- Konvict/Jive Records recording artist T-Pain dominates the music airplay and ringtone charts with his break out single “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” from his upcoming sophomore release Epiphany.

This week “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” beats out artists such as MIMS, AKON, Avril, and Beyonce as the #1 ringtone on the Billboard Hot RingMasters chart for the 2nd week in a row. The ringtone sold 182K this past week alone and has sold nearly 800K ringtones to date. In radio airplay “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” is ensconced at the #1 position in four separate charts #1 at R&R Rhythmic – beating out Fergie, Timbaland and Bow Wow , #1 at Mediabase Rhythmic, #1 at R&R Urban - knocking AKON out of the top spot, and #1 at Mediabase Urban.

His new single “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” features Yung Joc and borrows from four different snap records to create one hot track. “Basically, these days lots of people begin their relationships in the clubs,” explains T-Pain. “Whole conversations begin with some guy buying a young lady a drink. I wanted to make a song for those folks.”

After catching the ear of songwriter and producer Akon, he was quickly signed to Akon’s label Konvict Records and rapidly followed in his footsteps to the top of the charts. T-Pain has had two smash singles from his gold-selling debut album Rappa Ternt Sanga. The first single “I’m Sprung” sold over one million ringtones and “I’m N Luv (Wit A Stripper)”sold in excess of 5 million ringtones. The sophomore album Epiphany is produced, written and arranged by T-Pain.
