It’s fair to say the title track from Ari Lennox’s debut album, Shea Butter Baby, is a fan-favorite. The J. Cole-assisted track has now been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It’s the Dreamville frontwoman’s first platinum award.
Recently, Lennox was seen in the studio with Missy Elliott. She called their session pairing “a dream come true.” Their meeting is reportedly for Lennox’s sophomore album, which has producers and songwriters Akil C. “Fresh” King, Blush, and J. White Did It behind the boards.
In film news, Lennox’s “Black and White” collaboration with rapper Nasty C is making the tracklist for the official Coming 2 America soundtrack.
Back in November, Lennox earned a gold certification for “BMO.”
