When Meek Mill dropped his new album Dreams Worth More Than Money, a lot of people wanted to know who was the (uncredited) guy on the intro “Lord Knows.” His name is Tory Lanez, and he’s a Toronto singer/rapper with over 10 mixtapes to his name. He’s written songs for people like Akon, Travis Scott, T.I., and more, and last night he released his brand new single “Say It.”
The track, produced by pop extraordinaire Pop Wansel, samples the 1999 Brownstones hit “If You Love Me” and comes with the announcement that Lanez has signed to Interscope via Benny Blanco’s Mad Love Records imprint. His major label debut album is set to drop in 2016, but catch up with his 5-track Cruel Intentions EP that he dropped with WeDidIt earlier this year. If you’re new to the kid, your best entry point might be last year’s excellent Lost Cause tape, featuring production from Ryan Hemsworth, Noah Breakfast, and Tory himself, amongst others.
