NEW YORK (Billboard) - Those who thought Taylor Swift was a big deal after the release of her first record should be prepared: The country singer is about to get way bigger.Though they're written by a teenager, Swift's songs have broad appeal, and therein lies the genius and accessibility of her second effort.That's because he's been nearly as ubiquitous as Lil Wayne in the guest appearance department since then, adding his Autotuned voice to tracks from Wayne, Ciara and Ludacris, among many others.So what's the difference between T-Pain the guest and T-Pain the featured artist?
