Hip-hop artist Tory Lanez hails from Canada. He is widely known for his single “Say it” from his mixtape Lost Cause. Tory Lanez has released 10 mixtapes since 2009 and an EP in 2015. He finally released his debut album I Told You this past August. Tory Lanez made it clear that he doesn’t vibe with fellow Canadian hip-hop artist Drake. However, I can’t help but compare them. Tory Lanez and Drake both mix singing and rapping. They also aren’t afraid to dabble with different genres. They both came out with a dancehall style song, Drake did “Work” with Rihanna and Tory Lanez did “LUV.” Both songs were mega hits this summer. Moreover “LUV” shows how brilliantly Tory Lanez blends R&B, trap and Hip-hop. Lanez album I Told You consists of 14 song that plays 14 skits in between the tracks. Everyone should check out his other albums, but here are my top five songs that I love from I Told You.
- Say it
- Friends with benefits
- To D.R.E.A.M
See Tory Lanez in Salt Lake on October 17 at The Complex! Tickets start at $25. I hope to see you there!!
