The second single by R&B, singer-songwriter T-Pain from his fourth studio album, RevolveR, was produced by Young Fyre and features Nappy Boy Entertainment rapper Joey Galaxy, who was formerly known as Young Cash. It was released to iTunes on July 12, 2011.
The music video features not only Joey Galaxy but also comedian Kevin Hart, who previously appeared in the visual for Three 6 Mafia's "Lolli Lolli (Pop That Body)."
"Piano Man" was inspired by Billy Joel's time playing at a piano bar in Los Angeles. The "real estate novelist" was a guy who always talked about writing a book, but spent all his spare time in the bar.
