Though it's been a minute since the Toronto Raptors took home the NBA Championship title, the Great North has once again come through to represent. With his upcoming Chixtape 5 arriving on November 15th, Tory Lanez has kicked things off with a brand new single, the T-Pain assisted "Jerry Sprunger." Currently available in select international markets, Fargo's latest is nostalgic on several levels: the Ashanti-centric album cover, the callback to late-nineties trash TV, and of course, the feature from T-Pain. The album's very conceit--the recurring sample of early millennium hits--speaks to the target demographic.
As for "Sprunger," it finds Tory employing his helium smooth cadence, delivering effortless melodies over an up-tempo, sensual instrumental. T-Pain plays the confident wingman, sliding onto the scene with some signature autotune vocals; together, the pair deliver a playful vibe, one that will likely appeal to whomever they're looking to woo. If you're looking for bars, you'll have to wait a little bit longer. Tory is a versatile artist, and his many different hats take time to cycle.
