Riff: T-Pain – “That Comeback”

Nov 20, 2017

Ooh, I’m so blue to you, what did you do?/This could be us, you got control over me/Girl this some voodoo do, what did you do?/This could be us, how’d you get this hold on me

from That Comeback lyrics by T-Pain

T-Pain is so smitten by his lady that he’s accusing her of black magic. It’s voodoo and he doesn’t know how to free himself from her vice-like grip. Part of him enjoys being spellbound, but he needs to be free in order to sow his wild oats. With no options, he calls Ne-Yo for backup who can’t do much because he’s caught in the same predicament. It’s a catch-22 that both don’t mind being in.
