Fans have been looking forward to Luke Bryan's much-anticipated fourth studio album, which is going to be a highlight of this summer, and there's been a whole lot of buzz about his rumored collaboration with rapper T-Pain. Bryan finally explained what's really going on between him and the rapper. 

“It’s half true and kinda true,” Bryan told reporters, according to Country Weekly. Basically, the country crooner and T-Pain have a mutual friend who sent both artists the same song to record. Apparently, Bryan is going to record the song but may include parts of the rapper's version on the track.

This rumor was initially confusing, as the 'My Kinda Party' hitmaker's first single was expected to be the aforementioned collaboration with T-Pain. But then it turned out to be a track that solely featured Bryan.

After digesting Bryan's cryptic statement, it sounds like fans will need to wait a little longer to know if country and rap will combine for a hit song.

T-Pain has been dabbling with several country music artists -- one of the most unforgettable pair-ups was between him and the ever lovely Taylor Swift.

Meanwhile, Bryan, the reigning Entertainer of the Year, will be releasing his album on Aug. 13. After his Double Platinum record 'Tailgates & Tanlines,' fans have high expectations. But we've got a feeling Bryan won't disappoint.
