Ari Lennox is back with new single "Pressure," giving R&B fans just the vibe they've been waiting for. The sultry record was produced by all-star production team the Ocean Boys, which is comprised of legendary producers Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox, and Johnta Austin — all of whom are responsible for some of the biggest records in R&B history.
Back in February, the 30-year old songstress teased her collaboration with the iconic crew via Twitter with a photo of the gang in the studio, writing,
Y’all really have no idea whats coming from this
Fans have been impatiently waiting for Ari's return to music ever since she dropped her debut album Shea Butter Baby in 2019. However, the first lady of Dreamville didn't leave her followers without content for too long. Earlier this year, she was featured on alongside Jazmine Sullivan on the steamy record "On It" and teamed up with Queen Naija for her controversial single "Set Him Up".
Ari took to Twitter to celebrate the release of her new single and wistful visuals by thanking everyone involved in the process — from her Dreamville family to her hair and makeup crew. She wrote,
Special thanks to Rissa and Justin and Dreamville and Interscope. Chloe and Chanel you changed my life with the looks. Chandler you’re a phenomenal director. Jai Len and Johnta we wrote something special. Kim Kimble you slayed my hair thank you.
The soulful D.C native is giving vocals and visuals with her Motown inspired new single. Check out the "Pressure" below.
