Tory Lanez is a R&B singer from Brampton, Canada. He is 27 years old and first started to gather musical attention and fame in 2016 from his single, “Say It”. So it’s safe to say that Tory Lanez has been known for his R&B touch and he continues that in, “Chixtape 5”. The album as a whole is just great to listen to. It gives you everything you would want and expect to hear, while also having many surprises as well. The biggest of the surprises was the remixes version of T Pain’s classic song, “I’m Sprung.” But aside from just that’s Track Tory carries over that early 2000’s type or R&B in this album. If I were to rate this album I would give it a 9 out of 10 because of the overall vibe and flow of the album. I find the entire album to be really vibey and relaxing with the features on the album being really fitting as well.
“Jerry Sprunger” is the third track off the album and seems to be everyone’s favorite. It is basically a remixed version of T Pain’s iconic single song “I’m Sprung”. With this being the first time ever that T Pain has ever remixed it. It has that really slow and loving vibe that can just set you in a good mood and Tory seems to be adding his own R&B touch to it himself, giving a little
mix up from the original song.
“The Take” is a song off the album that features another big time R&B artist, Chris Brown. Tory & Chris both collab on this track to give an all around great song and something exactly what you would expect from the two as they don’t happen to disappoint. Tory starts the song off with his own verse and let’s Chris Brown carry the song throughout with the chorus. This song is a great one to listen to and could be found as being really really relaxing.
Tory Lanez uses the 2000’s R&B throwback sort of flow to bring a sense of nostalgia to his album. He does this with the use of smooth beats and silky vocals. And this is also really appealing to the generation that grew up during the early 2000s. If you like Tory Lanez I would recommend listening to artists like Chris Brown, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Drake, Jacquees, & Bryson Tiller. Overall if you like the idea of an artist reflecting off of 2000s R&B you should definitely check out Tory Lanez and his newest album, “Chixtape 5”.
