T-Pain thought Usher was joking but he turned out to be serious

T-Pain was taken aback by the remark, which he initially mistook for a joke, but Usher then repeated himself according to a report by Complex.

According to the auto-tune king, that conversation was the "exact moment" that triggered a four-year depression for him, as he reveals in the show's preview trailer.

Of course, the chat took place a few years after Jay-Z openly chastised auto-tune in the Blueprint 3 hit DOA, but the singer claims the Usher incident was the catalyst—despite not understanding it for years.

This Is Pop is an eight-part series uncovering the real stories behind some of the biggest artists and moments in pop music history, according to Netflix's description.
