Itâ€™s fair to say the title track from Ari Lennoxâ€™s debut album, Shea Butter Baby,Â is a fan-favorite. The J. Cole-assisted track has now been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Itâ€™s the Dreamville frontwomanâ€™s first platinum award.Â
Recently, Lennox was seen in the studio with Missy Elliott. She called their session pairing â€œa dream come true.â€ Their meeting is reportedly for Lennoxâ€™s sophomore album, which has producers and songwriters Akil C. â€œFreshâ€ 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 â€œBMO.â€Â
