Last month saw Tory Lanez release the third installment of his highly rated New Toronto series, effectively ending his relationship with Interscope Records. Now a free man, the Canadian star liberates a new single titled “Temperature Rising,” which is produced by DopeBoyzMuzic and Super Miles. The song is perfect for anyone who needs to set the mood with their quarantine bae at home:
“Temperature’s risin’, and I’m fantasizin’ bout’ givin’ it to you/
Givin’ you somethin’, won’t lie it’s somethin’ I wanna do to you/
We got all night, girl, we can take it slowly, look back at it and shake it for me/
’Cause only I can make you feel the way you feel, time to make you feel it for real…/”
Out of his peers, Tory Lanez has found a way to maximize off the current Coronavirus pandemic, which has indefinitely shut down entertainment venues and events worldwide. First, he was a major part of the Instagram live stream renaissance — to the point of the platform’s consternation over adult content — with “Quarantine Radio,” which at the time broke several viewer records and saw visits from the likes of Drake, Wiz Khalifa, and more. More recently, he was able to lock in a partnership with YouTube to launch his “Social Distancing” tour, an interactive live-stream experience that’s acting as an alternative to the traditional concert excursion.
“To be 100 percent, there’s so many labels offering me so much money — like millions of dollars… I’ve gotten offers that are life-changing offers, but I don’t care. I already own my masters and publishing and everything. So I don’t see any reason to give that to somebody else.”
