Tory Lanez’s highly anticipated debut album I Told You finally hits shelves and online retailers on August 19th. The Interscope-signed rapper definitely took his time with it, but it appears to be working, as his fanbase and hype is at an all-time high. We’ve heard several leaks off I Told You thus far, and they all fall squarely within the r’n’b realm. The most recent was “Flex,”and today’s leak, “Cold Hard Love,” is in a similar vein.
The complex production almost becomes the focus of this record. Tory’s high-pitched vocals counter the pounding drums, whirring synths, and a deep-seated guitar arrangement. At over five minutes, the song goes through some changes– the most interesting coming at the very end, where Tory unexpectedly drops a verse. We said “Flex” might be his strongest leak yet, but does this one take the cake?
