Smoking on this dro, you don’t care / You don’t judge me, you love me / That’s why I keep you near.

When singer forward/slash songwriter Ari Lennox gifted us with her Dreamville debut “Pho” in 2016, it was clear to even a man with wooden eyes the “Cold Outside” creative was here to stay. She saw that, so why wouldn’t eye? Born and praised in the DMV, Lennox represents a particular effortless affect as rare in its presence as in her presentation; sings as though she was known to before she was born to or even blunt-rolled homegrown to… Can a Grammy nod-less artist knock sense into powers-that-be pretention, actually croon truce comfort amidst crippin’ award season conspiracy, like a love jones found-and-lost in conveniently categorized alt-R&B? Yea, we like Ari a lot, as much for her sober authenticity balanced on a drunks-solely barstool of sick music, I meant mu-sick, I meant when the muse is 40 Water Sick Wid It and you’re still lost in the shape of her shea butter hips.
