At the time no. By those standards, it probably qualified, but everyone loved that sh*t, every fu*kin demo.

Selling out what?

Lollipop was a hit then and still is to me. Wayne was k*lling it back at that time coming off Carter 2.

A good portion of people for sure questioned the over the top auto tune at the time in the song, when it first dropped. But it was forced down everyone's throat, song was every where.

Wayne could do no wrong at the time. But Wayne was on the horizon as a solo superstar and this song helped break him in. It's not like he was established as a street/gangster rapper that dropped an autotune single. This was his breakout song into the mainstream.

And at the time, hip hop was transitioning to the Southern takeover and to more singy raps. Snoop Dogg was the first rapper I remember dropping an autotune R&B track as a rapper with "s*xual Seduction," and the next thing you know it opened the floodgates with Lil Wayne dropping "lollipop." Kanye got on the remix to "lollipop," and then he stole the entire wave and dropped the "808s and Heartbreak" album with nothing but singing on autotune, and hip hop hasn't gone back since.

mid head here and i must say i was in the 8th grade when this sh*t dropped and it was just hilarious to us, song aged good to me. the guitar and the hook with static major at the end is so beautiful

To "Hip hop heads", Wayne was a sellout from the jump. By this time you expected something like this from him

Exhibit A of n*ggas making up shii to sound cool Lollipop came out before s*xual Eruption and then this n*gga was just skips over T-Pains whole wave specifically the album Rapper Turnt Sanga

Bruh this site is the biggest unintentional comedians ever like you know these dudes ain’t start listening to rap until about 5 years ago and try to sound like experts
Snoops "Sensual Seduction" came out at the end of 2007. Wayne's "Lollipop" song didn't come out until the Spring of 08. Please don't try to talk to
me about timelines when I was around in that
time-period, kid. A google search will also k*ll your argument and make you look like the fool that you are.

T-Pain doesn't need to be brought up in this conversation. It's already a given that T-Pain popularized the auto-tune sound of the 2000s that influenced the rappers. However, he was an R&B singer; he wasn't a rapper. I'm talking about the rappers like Snoop that started singing in auto-tune first, where Wayne came after, only for Kanye to follow up next, and spawned a generation of autotune rap singers.

Lloyd you was one of the biggest songs of 2007

I wouldn't say lollipop made Wayne mainstream
Carter 3 was highly anticipated way before that song

People that hated that song hated Wayne from the beginning because he wasn't rapping over old NY beats
