T-Pain sets date for 'Three Ringz'

Zomba album due Sept. 30

NEW YORK -- T-Pain is eyeing a Sept. 30 release for his third album, "Three Ringz," which will be released by Konvict Muzik/Zomba. The first single, "Snap You Fingers" featuring Lil' Wayne, is expected to hit radio next month.

According to a Zomba spokesperson, a video for "Snap Yo Fingers" is in the works and T-Pain is currently hard at work producing the new album with Akon.

This week's Hot 100 chart boasts three songs featuring T-Pain, including Flo Rida's breakout single "Low," which sits at No. 16 after 27 weeks.

The R&B singer garnered five BET Awards nominations last week, including nods for best collaboration for his work with Chris Brown ("Kiss Kiss"), Kanye West ("Good Life") and Flo Rida ("Low").

"Epiphany," T-Pain's 2007 album, has sold 819,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
