Chixtape 5 is the fourth studio album by Canadian rapper Tory Lanez. It was released on November 15, 2019, by Mad Love and Interscope. It is the fifth installment of the Chixtape series with samples of “2000s-era R&B hits”. The album includes guest appearances by Jagged Edge, T-Pain, Chris Brown, The-Dream, Mýa, Ashanti, Trey Songz, Lil Wayne, Fabolous and more.

Chixtape 5 is the first of the series in which it was released as an album on streaming platforms. The album cleared all of the samples and includes the original artist featured on the song. In an interview with Billboard, Tory Lanez said “Everything is 2000s-inspired. Everything is inspired by the times when things were golden for us. I think all those pieces and everything that we’ve come out with has been all about nostalgia. I’m about to take you on a whole journey musically.”

The singer said that the album was heavily inspired by Chris Brown’s album Indigo, inspiring him with its edited low-pitched background vocals, its samples from early 2000′s R&B, and how double tracks from that album were managed.

Singles and promotion
On November 1, 2019, Tory Lanez announced the album’s release date with Ashanti on the cover art. On November 8, he released the first single of the album, “Jerry Sprunger” featuring T-Pain, accompanied by a music video. Tory Lanez launched a website named after the album with an interface designed after the social network website MySpace.

Chixtape 5 debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200, earning 83,000 album-equivalent units, (including 9,000 pure album sales) in its first week. It is Lanez’s fourth US top-five album.
