Im dating a stripper serious dating for marriage
"I'm 'n Luv" got an answer cover, an art rock tribute, and received the most indisputable acknowledgement of cultural impact a popular song can get: A "Weird Al" Yankovic parody.
Yankovic dresses like Gilligan to sing "I'm in Love With the Skipper" in concert.
It directly led to the rise of (and subsequent call for the death of) Auto-Tune, cemented the end of rock's reign over stripper anthems, and heralded a new, rich era of songs about the feelings and activities inspired by looking at naked women dance.
That's a lot to lay on one single, but the reaction it received bears out its impact.
Another five months later, the wider world was introduced to Fat Joe and Lil Wayne's "Make It Rain".
T-Pain's journey from strip club bard to NPR favorite started with the release of "I'm 'n Luv (Wit a Stripper)" on December 13, 2005.
What first seemed like a sweetly risqué novelty hit that was too racy for airplay—radio settled for "I'm 'n Luv (Wit a Dancer)"—it did quite a bit of work.
To commemorate the 10-year anniversary of T-Pain's debut album and the one-year anniversary of his appearance, NPR invited him back last week for a command performance.
"I'm 'n Luv (Wit a Stripper)" didn't make the cut either time.
Last year, T-Pain recorded the most popular Tiny Desk Concert in NPR history, accompanied by a lone keyboard player and joking that his Auto-Tune had been surgically inserted.
