T-Pain took to social media to complain about Delta Airlines’ boarding music, and the company's response was iconic.
In late September, the man behind "I’m Sprung” tweeted the airline to complain about its somber boarding music and how it affected his vibe.
“@Delta we gotta change these boarding/taxiing songs more often guys,” he wrote. “All of Us Million milers (quick brag) have to hear these same joints multiple times a day. I gotta go perform in the Staples Center in a minute and Adele just put me in the weirdest mood. Now I’m crying. Thanx.”
The Atlanta-based airline explained the song choices and teased T-Pain about the antics that would ensue if they were switched:
Our boarding/taxing songs are intended to provide a relaxing experience. Can you imagine what would ensue if we played “buy u a drank” (a personal fave), with everyone snappin’ their fingers and what not? We’d never get anywhere on time. Necessary sacrifices, Mr. Pain. *HBN

“Touché,” T-Pain responded. “Understandable.”
The company must have been OK with one delayed flight, however, because the Tallahassee Hero heard a familiar song as he boarded his plane from Los Angeles last Saturday:

We just landing back in Atlanta from LAX and @delta decided they wanna show out and starts blastin “Buy u a drank” over the speakers in the plane. Not gon lie it felt pretty damn cool. Made me chuckle like a lil girl ???? shit was wild loud too. Big thank you to @delta and the super solid flight attendants for getting the flight lit ???? @delta I see what you mean. I didn’t wanna get off the plane. Solid facts ????
In the video, T-Pain had on earphones until a flight attendant asked him to remove them. When he did, he heard his music.
“That’s all for you,” the attendant said.
“Delta came through,” he replied. “Delta lit.”
Well played, Delta.
