Chris Brown sang about his intimate plans with his girl in his 2008 hit “Take You Down.” Sampling on this track, Tory Lanez recruits Chris Brown himself for their intimate plans for their girls on “The Take.”
“The Take” is the sixth track on Tory Lanez’ 2019 album ‘Chixtape 5.’ The singer talked about his bewilderment that this song actually took off;
“I didn’t even think the song was going to make it. You’ve got to remember how people feel about ‘Take You Down’ and how much of a lovemaking classic it is. I wanted to make sure that I did something that was a little bit different, come with a different flow. I feel like the production on the second half is probably my favorite thing about the song.”

Lyrics Review & Song Meaning of “The Take”
The very explicit lyrics to “The Take,” detail into the sexual fantasies of Tory Lanez and Chris Brown.
In the first verse of the song, Tory Lanez is heard appreciating the work of art that is his girlfriend’s body. He talks about unwinding his girl from the troubles of the day by getting it on with her. And his sexual game seems to be quite strong; “seven positions for seventy minutes.”
He knows that the girl is craving for him too. He compares her hunger for him to a Thanksgiving dinner, where everyone eats up as much as they can.
‘Taking her down’ is a reference to pinning her on the bed or getting on top of her.
In the second verse of “The Take,” Chris Brown jumps on the track. He sings about taking her down in every apartment building he has. Much like a Monopoly game, they are cruising through different parking spots. Even he is so fascinated by this girl, he compares their time together to “hittin’ the lottery.”
Much like its predecessor “Take You Down,” “The Take” also gained some reputation as a choice track for ‘lovemaking.’ We can see why.
