Black Sabbath, a metal band from England, recorded “War Pigs” as a protest song against war in 1970. It’s the first song on the group’s second studio album, 1970’s Paranoid.
“War Pigs” was initially called “Walpurgis,” a reference to the witches sabbath.
T-Pain has established himself as a creative force in his illustrious career, as evidenced by the success of his most recent album, “On Top of the Covers.” The executive of Nappy Boy Entertainment used his most recent endeavor to remind himself how he has fallen in love with music over the years now that he is entirely independent.
T-Pain showcases his incredible talent on the Seven-track album by performing covers of well-known songs from different genres and generations. These include Frank Sinatra’s “That Is Life,” Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” and even the classic rock song “War Pigs,” originally made famous by Black Sabbath from Ozzy Osbourne.
T-Pain returned with On Top of the Covers, a highly anticipated effort on which he displays his inherent singing voice, years after releasing his sixth studio album. The Grammy-winning musician claimed that he started working on the project as soon as he took home the title of The Masked Singer in 2019.
The 38-year-old artist from Florida published many humorous promotional videos on social media, noting in one that the project was “influenced by music written by white folks.”
According to T-Pain in a press release, “Each of these tracks has a special meaning for me and has played a part in my love for music at various stages in my life.”
Could T-next Pain’s project be a partnership with GWAR? The metal band recently expressed their desire to collaborate with the rapper to Heavy Consequence, but only time will tell if this wish comes true.
