Why You Need to Listen to Ari Lennox

by Da’Nelle Grier


Hailing from Washington D.C., Ari Lennox is a name you will never forget with a vocal quality just as striking as her features. I’m not kidding. This woman has the fullest, most enticing head of curls, beautiful, mahogany skin, and a jawline to die for.

But on a more serious note, Ari completely has the “it” factor. No, scratch that. Ari is the “it” factor. Her sound is the perfect combination of passion, rawness, strength, (and a hint of Baduizm) that would make anybody fall in love. Her personality is vibrant and quirky — the qualities I’m sure we all look for in a best friend. Lastly, her entire aesthetic is that of a carefree woman who is comfortable in her own skin, and that is the ultimate role model material.


Recently crowned as the First Lady of J. Cole’s Dreamville Records, there’s no doubt in my mind the world will soon be mesmerized by this 22-year-old R&B powerhouse.
