T-Pain showed off his non-auto tuned singing skills on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night with one of the tracks off his new album, “5 O’Clock.” The song is a sexy ode to the crack of dawn, and between T-Pain’s breathy vocal and the adorable little thing singing the female part at the side of the stage, the whole performance is inspiring us to loosen our collars. There’s a bit of a retro R&B throw back happening here too, with purple tinted lighting, a full band and some harmonizing backup singers with synchronized dance moves. The song itself is pretty catchy — we’re expecting it will be a staple for party playlists this winter, and we’re definitely hoping there will be a club-inspired remix for the festive season.
