Chixtape 5 is Tory Lanez' fourth studio album and the 5th installment of his Chixtape series–a nostalgic series which find Tory flipping old-school R&B. Due to this being an official album, there has been a relatively longer wait due to the clearance of samples. Furthermore, Tory spoke on the work he put into this album, saying :
It had to be calculated and done right .THIS IS THE BEST CHIXTAPE I HAVE EVER MADE . And when u hear it you will understand the work , passion and love that I put into every vocal , every beat , every SURPRISE .
In early October, 2019, Tory revealed the projects release month of November alongside a preview and the “Chixlist”–a Spotify playlist curated by himself of songs “that inspired the samples & vibe for #CHIXTAPE5”.
Soon after revealing the album’s cover art (featuring Ashanti) and it’s release date, Tory released the much anticipated (and heavily teased) lead single “Jerry Sprunger” featuring T-Pain in the week preceding the album’s release. The album’s features and some of its samples were revealed by Tory two days preceding the album’s release.
