Artists who didnt have the best singing voices received a major push with how Auto-Tune altered their voices. However, not everyone loved it.

And he said, Im gonna tell you something, man. You kinda fucked up music.'

And then he was like, Yeah man you really fucked up music for real singers,' T-Pain continued to say. I was like, What did I do? I came out and I used Auto-Tune. He was like, Yeah, you fucked it up. Im like, But I used it, I didnt tell everybody else to start using it.' T-Pain added, That is the very moment, and I dont even think I realized this for a long time, but thats the very moment that started a four-year depression for me. View this post on Instagram
