Tory Lanez has frequently made noise this year. The Brampton singer/rapper ended 2015 on an excellent note with his two projects The New Toronto and Chixtape 3. Both of the 2015 mixtapes were released for free and were the unofficial prelude to his debut album. As soon as 2016 started the media mentions started for Tory. The Toronto artist was immediately on the receiving end of a Drake subliminal (Summer 16) and the rivalry took a new life. Shortly after that Tory had to answer to the media as to why Drake was coming at him and where he stands in regards to the response. After Say It going platinum Lanez released his new single LUV–the first song off of his upcoming project I Told You. Tory announced the title during a HotNewHipHop interview and did many other interviews with prestigous outlets like Hot97. Tory Lanez wasn’t only media-active. The rising Toronto star continued his FargoFriday releases and was a part of the Level Up tour with A$AP Ferg. Now summer has arrived and the Toronto artist announced the release date and now he delivers the art cover, track listing, and a new song titled Flex.
The new song is different than the single LUV. Whereas LUV is more shifted towards the new dancehall-influenced Tory, Flex is more R&B Tory.
