Tory Lanez has dropped a new single, just weeks after the track leaked online. The R&B singer took to Instagram Sunday (June 18) to announce the collaborative track, which features his brother, Yoko Gold.
“Two and a half years ago my brother Yoko and I orchestrated this record for his project,” Tory Lanez began. “We never thought nothing of it. It collected dust in a hard drive. Guess God had a different plan for it.”
Lanez expressed his gratitude to those who leaked the song, thanking them for making sure the track heard the light of day.
“Never thought I’d say this but I wanna thank the Umbrellas for LEAKING this record,” he added. “Yoko it’s your time. Hold the Umbrella down while I’m gone.”
Earlier on Sunday, Tory Lanez shared an update from behind bars as he awaits sentencing, more than six months after a jury found him guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.
“I want y’all to know I haven’t lost my faith in God and that I’m in high spirits,” Lanez explained. “I’m praying for the best and remain confident that God will bring me through this. I have spent the last 7 months rehabilitating my mind, my body and my soul. Though I came to jail a good person, I will leave as a great person. He also vowed to continue dropping new music beginning with “Hurts Me.”
“I’ve turned this jail cell into my work office,” he said. “I will continue the legacy of the Umbrella from here or anywhere else. I won’t let anything stop me from being a positive light and a help to those in need.” Read his post in full below.
