Shlohmo plus an epic voice is always a good combination (think Banks’ Brain or his work with Jeremih) so it’s no surprise that I clicked this track’s little repost button. The Californian beatsmith gives Toronto’s Tory Lanez‘ R&B hit a second revival (probably third if you count Ed Sheeran’s cover). It’s a nice little nod to T Lanez, who frequently collaborates with WEDIDIT producers including Shlohmo, the beat behind last year’s Acting Like. In spectacular Shlohmo fashion, his remix of Say It is darker and moodier than Pop & Oak’s treatment, but complements Tory’s smooth-as-butter vocals as if it were the OG version.
If you’re here in Toronto on Valentine’s Day, try score free tickets to Tory Lanez x Ryan Hemsworth at the Danforth. The New Toronto and Chixtape 3 are available for download here, and make sure you follow Shlohmo and WEDIDIT on Soundcloud for more perfectly polished noise.
