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.
Listen Up and Enjoy!
