Toronto-based rapper Tory Lanez shared “Initiation” on his SoundCloud in the latest installation of his ‘Fargo Fridays’ series. While the Interscope-signed singer is still heavily promoting his new single “Say It” (below), he’s reunited with production duo BenZel for this sultry R&B-driven cut.
Check out the video for “Say It” here:
If this loose and wavy track is any indication of his upcoming album, which is expected to be released next year, it definitely seems like Lanez is swaying more to the R&B side than the rap side these days. The smoother, crooning elements in “Initiation” are undoubtedly part of the beloved Toronto sound, but Lanez pushes the boundaries and makes his mark with his own unique sound. He’s, without a doubt, the best urban artist in the world right now and everyone’s about to know it for themselves. Everything he’s putting out is crazy good and no one is bringing classic R&B melodies together with future beats like he is.
In addition to working on some new material, Tory is currently is getting ready for his extensive US fall tour with both Young Thug and Mac Miller.
