His curated set of nostalgic visuals posted on social media is a nod to the album's sound and essence, a reflection of its adventure into the classic style of 80s R&B. With 21 total tracks and top-notch features from acts like Yoko Gold, Trippie Redd, and Tee, the album steers away from contemporary hip-hop and leans more towards Lanez's impressive vocal abilities while channeling inspiration from iconic R&B greats.
Shortly after the album was announced, Lanez posted an image of its artwork — a beautiful portrait of his dear friend, the late Alexa Alita. "...a close friend to me and so many, a beautiful soul, and the muse that revolutionized Alone At Prom," Tory shared in a caption.
From every angle, Alone At Prom (Deluxe) is layered with meaning. Lanez perfectly weaves themes of love and lust (and the thin line between them) while showcasing his artistic versatility through retro production flairs and otherwordly vocal performances. It might be his most impactful album yet, and it's about to take the contemporary R&B scene by the horns.
Our favorite track? While we've been bumping "Hurts Me" with Yoko Gold and Trippie Redd for months now, we must give it to "Sex Anonymous." It oozes with chilling, sensual lyrics from Tory's smooth vocal performance, and the solid verse from his brother, Yoko Gold, is the juicy cherry on top. Yoko's rhythmic and cheeky bars, paired with Tory's alluring vocals, make this track an easy number one.
So, which is your favorite? Treat yourself to one of Tory Lanez's most conceptual projects to date, a deep-dive into 80s R&B rounded out with the magic of modern production. Find Alone At Prom (Deluxe) on all digital streaming platforms.
