Last December, we wrote about Tory Lanez as if his time had finally arrived. Previous material from Lanez dug around the same punchy, melodic, drum heavy production that you’d normally hear on trap records. “Godfather” and “Diego” for example outfitted Lanez as a kingpin in his own mind, a deft moment of confidence that has only swollen with “Say It”.

Now, “Say It” is more inline with what Lanez released on Chixtape 3. It’s an Andrew “Pop” Wansel collab that brings Brownstone back to your attention and remind you of how underrated they were. Last night, Tory Lanez brought it all full circle by letting Brownstone, minus the late Charmayne Maxwell, back him as he made his network television debut performing “Say It”. Hours later, “LA Confidential” arrived on iTunes. “LA Confidential” has so many pop sensibilities that it’s nuts with production from Cashmere Cat, Benny Blanco and “Say It” co-creator Andrew “Pop” Wansel. Miguel also has a co-writing credit on “LA Confidential” as a guitar-laden R&B ode where Lanez pretty much keeps his lady front and center, even if the rest of the world may not know about it.
