T-Pain & Delta Debate Suitable Airline Music

T-Pain

Singer T-Pain made his feelings known about not enjoying the music played during one of his flights on Delta Airlines last month. A hilarious exchange happened after the the artist informed the airline that its music had put a damper on his mood.

“@Delta we gotta change these boarding/taxiing songs more often guys,” T-Pain tweeted. “All of Us Million milers (quick brag) have to hear these same joints multiple times a day. I gotta go perform in the Staples Center in a minute and Adele just put me in the weirdest mood. Now I’m crying. Thanx.”

The next day, the airline quipped back at the Florida native, “Our boarding/taxing songs are intended to provide a relaxing experience. Can you imagine what would ensue if we played “buy u a drank” (a personal fave), with everyone snappin’ their fingers and what not? We’d never get anywhere on time. Necessary sacrifices, Mr. Pain. *HBN.”

The back and forth appeared to be over after T-Pain responded, “Touche,” but Delta had a surprise in store for the “Can’t Believe It” singer.

Once his return flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta landed, several flight attendants played his “Buy You a Drank” and danced down the plane aisle.

He shared a video of the moment on his Instagram, writing, “@delta decided they wanna show out and starts blastin’ “Buy u a drank” over the speakers in the plane. Not gon lie it felt pretty damn cool. Made me chuckle like a lil girl s*** was wild loud too…@delta I see what you mean. I didn’t wanna get off the plane. Solid facts.”
