Talking to Digital Spy, T-Pain admitted that Allen "loved" how he had used the song and that there were plans for her to be in the accompanying music video.

"Lily was going to be in the video, but she's a little bloated right now," he joked. "She said she didn't really want to be in the public eye being so super-mommy fat!"

The producer explained that the Lily Allen lookalike in the video was planned and added: "Lily picked that girl. That was her decision and that's why we put her in there."

T-Pain also confessed that he decided to film the video in Amsterdam's red light district after being told it wasn't allowed.

"It was great. I had been to Amsterdam a couple of times and people had told me that you can't film in the red light district," he said.

"So I made sure that I set out to shoot a video in the red light district! Once people tell me I can't do stuff, I'm going to go and make it happen."

'5 O'Clock' is available to download now in the US and will be officially released in the UK on December 4.

It will serve as the trailer single for T-Pain's upcoming album Revolver, which is currently slated for a December 6 release.
