Less than a week from gifting us with two new tracks, Ari Lennox is back with some sultry selections to add to our playlists. We've so far received "Grampa," "40 Shades of Choke," and "Whipped Cream," and now we have "No One" and "Pedigree." Both DJ Grumble-produced tracks showcase Ari's smooth and effortless delivery and get us primed and ready for the full album.
In "No One," the songstress tackles the topic of love and relationships. Ari sings over a percussion heavy beat, "251 contacts / You would think they are / 'Merica's best / Somehow I still remain alone / Not one missed call wrapped across the phone." Harmonizing with layers of her own vocals, she lulls you into a trance with her velvety smooth delivery, creating the perfect vibe for some deep contemplation.
In "Pedigree," Ari decides to live her best life and not stress about a former significant other. "Hey baby I noticed, can't be loved / Sweet thing let me pretend when we touch / Oh baby won't you kiss me there / Make me forget how you don't care," she sings. Both tracks gives us different sides of her personality but present a cohesive story of independence and pure unbothered-ness.
The Dreamville signee continues to drop off lossies ahead of the release of her debut album, the follow up to her 2016 EP PHO. Until we get the new album from Ari, we can also hear the songstress on J. Cole's "Shea Butter Baby," which will be featured on the Creed II soundtrack. You can cop "Pedigree" and "No One" on your favorite digital retailers or scroll down to listen to them right here.
