Following her first top ten single on R&B radio, Ari Lennox adds another chart victory to her scorecard. â€œPressure,â€ the official first single from her forthcoming sophomore album, has placed No. 10 on the Adult R&B Airplay chart this week. Out of her three appearances on this airplay-driven chart, this track marks her first to achieve top 10 status.
Lennox came close to placing in the top ten in August 2019, with the J. Cole-assisted â€œShea Butter Baby.â€ It peaked at No. 11. Meanwhile, her collaborative effort â€œMake Me Feel,â€ led by Skip Marley and featuring Rick Ross, reached No. 14 in December 2020.
Lennox shared a video for â€œPressureâ€ upon its release. The clip is an ode to Black women in music.
Before that, Lennox started to record new music with a range of talent, including Missy Elliott, Bryan-Michael Cox, Jermaine Dupri, and JohntÃ¡ Austin. The latter three hitmakers assisted on â€œPressure,â€ along with producer Elite and songwriter Jaiâ€™Len Josey.
The new album will follow Lennoxâ€™s regarded debut 2019 album Shea Butter Baby.
