It’s all good between the R&B singer and the legendary producer.

In 2010, T-Pain and Robin Thicke released a version of Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing)” for Quincy Jones album Q: Soul Bossa Nostra. Several years later, in an interview with New York Magazine, Quincy criticized the remake:

I said to them, ‘Look you got to make music better than we did on the originals.’ That didn’t happen…T-Pain, man, he didn’t pay attention to the details.

T-Pain responded on Twitter expressing his own unsatisfaction with the finished product. He claimed that he never wanted to record the song, it was a decision made by his then-manager.

On Sunday (Oct 21st) T-Pain once again addressed Jone’s comments on Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen. He explained that hours after the interview was released, the producer called him to apologize.

He actually did reach out to me immediately after that came out and he just explained to me that he’s just old…He said, “Look, man, sometimes I just get in my age and I just babble on about what I know,” and so I accepted his apology. I never lost any respect for him, I just didn’t know why he went like that with it.
