Without Auto-Tune, 2008 Would Have Been….?

No longer used for slight imperfections (Avril) nor able to stop a trainwreck (Kim Zolciak), the Auto-Tune certainly made its debut in 2008. 

Here are the Auto-Tune’s Greatest Hits :

Lil Wayne – Lollipop
Kanye West – Love Lockdown
T-Pain feat Lil Wayne – Can’t Believe It
Ron Brown & Jim Jones ft. Juelz Santana – Pop Champagne
Young Jeezy ft. Kanye West – Put On
Cher – Believe

Of all the aforementioned, I’m most thankful for technology’s contribution to helping Wezzy.
