Last Friday, rising Canadian R&B crooner Tory Lanez tweeted: "Remember I said this ... I'm about to have Jamaica ON FIRE".

He then released a music video for his second single called Luv. The hook follows the same key and melody of Tanto Metro and Devonte's version.

The single follows Lanez's 2015 hit song, Say It, a mellow R&B tune with a gospel choir adding vocal flair to the chorus. Luv serves as the second official single from Tory Lanez's upcoming debut album titled I Told You.Since it's release on YouTube, views for the music video have climbed to over 800,000, following closely behind the song's SoundCloud count, currently climbing from 1.1 million plays.

"Though we are no stranger to seeing our material being covered, it still feels good to know the appreciation of our works from the past," said Devonte.

He says that he thinks Tory Lanez did a wonderful job putting his own twist on the record.

Tanto Metro said that what the song has done in the past, and is still doing today, makes the pair feel like winners.

"We've watched it cross generations," he said, "and as such, our deepest gratitude towards the artiste and his team."
