THE Shea Butter Baby, Ari Lennox’s Voice (And Laugh) Is Like Soul Food! (We Stan So Hard!)
We are all-the-way thrilled to have one of our favorite new recording artists, Ari Lennox (@arilennox), on the show this week! Cori is trying to get her bedroom decor to ‘BMO’ video levels and Charli is stanning hard for Ari’s humility and IG hilarity. R&B is having a revival of sorts and artists like Ari are leading the way. So, we chopped it up with her about her new album “Shea Butter Baby” (it’s a whole vibe!), what (THE QUEEN) Erykah Badu said to her before her Black Girls Rock! performance, cautionary tales of signing record deals, and her upcoming tour with LIZZO! We cannot get enough of Ari, y’all. Her star is rising at meteoric speeds and it warms our hearts. Check out this episode, full of laughs and real talk!
