After treating us with several new singles in the recent weeks, T-Pain now decided to surprise us with a new record. On Wednesday, February 27th, the 33-year-old rapper dropped 1UP, his sixth studio album, out of the blue.

The album has 12 tracks and features appearances from several high profile names. The title track is a collaboration with Profit Dinero, while “RIP To the Parking Lot” sees T-Pain joining forces with Balton Rouge-native Boosie Badazz. The list of guests on 1UP also includes Lil Wayne, Flipp Dinero, O.T. Genasis, and Tory Lanez.

You can hear the entire album below.

T-Pain’s last studio album came in 2017 when he released Oblivion. The record, which was recorded between 2014 and 2017, received generally positive reviews from the critics but didn’t have much success on the charts, peaking at No.155 on the US Billboard 200.

In 2017 he also released a long-expected collaboration album with Lil Wayne titled T-Wayne. The duo recorded the tracks in 2009 but had to hold off the release due to Wayne’s legal troubles.
