(TIML NEWS) Delta had time today. So on Friday (Sept. 28), T-Pain complained to one of America’s favorite airlines via social media about how the music that Delta spins at their terminals and taxiing doesn’t get him in the right state of mind for his gigs.
The “I’m ‘n Luv (Wit a Stripper)” singer tweeted, “@Delta we gotta change these boarding/taxiing songs more often guys. 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.”
Not too long after, a representative from Delta’s social media team came back with this response. “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”
T-Pain then responded tweeting back: “Touche. Understandable,‘.’ However a week later, the R&B singer was in for a surprise when be boarded another Delta flight.
According to a video he posted on Instagram, someone told the Tallahassee-native to take off his headphones, and it turned out that his signature hit “Buy U a Drank” was playing. He thanks the airlines in his video saying, “I appreciate it. I appreciate it. Delta came through, That’s lit. Delta lit.”
