Akon V. T-Pain: Which Artist Do You Like Better? J Randall Weighs In!

Mon, December 13, 2010 9:35pm EDT by 8 Comments

J has worked with both Akon and T-Pain. See what he has to say about these stars!

It’s the battle of who is the better artist, Akon or T-Pain! Akon has been nominated for five Grammy Awards and won one America Music Award. T-Pain has been nominated for 11 Grammy Awards and won one in 2010. Now, J Randall, a singer and entertainer himself, has something to say about working with both stars!

Akon‘s older. He’s kind of like the wise one teaching me the ways,” J tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “And T-Pain just feels like a best friend.”

“I was actually a little intimated at first with Akon,” J says of working with Akon to record the song “Oh La La.” “He just has a presence about him that is like bigger than life. At first, he was a little stand offish. But working with him was a great learning experience because I’m a fan of his and I was kind of in awe through the whole process.”

“T-Pain is the type of guy you meet. You have a conversation with him for about 30 seconds and you feel like you went to high school with him,” J tells us. “He’s a real warm person. He’s very approachable. He’s kind of like the life of the party. The guy attracts attention. He’s just a star. When you’re sitting around, everybody just watches the guy. He’s kind of a clown, a comedian. It was great working with T-Pain.” J and T-Pain’s song “Can’t Sleep” should be available some time next year.

But BFF’s, we leave it to you to decide which artist you like better. Vote below!

They’re both very talented, so for me it is very hard to chose which one.
