Esteemed vocalist Ari Lennox (Dreamville/Interscope Records) displays her sultry stylings once again as she presents the Shea Butter Baby (Remix EP). Lennox solicits stellar crooner Durand Bernarr, rapper Smino and the popular cross-genre Doja Cat for the three track EP, released today. Each track offers its own unique take on the original, while still maintaining Lennox’s soulful vibe; with production courtesy of J. Cole, Craig Brockman, Omen, Ron Gilmore and Elite.
The project includes remakes of “I Been” and “Facetime,” while Doja Cat lends her distinct sound and verse to “BMO.” The latter served as the third official single from Lennox’s acclaimed debut album, Shea Butter Baby, which also spawned the hit records, “Shea Butter Baby” with J. Cole and fan favorite, “New Apartment.” The album landed on eight year-end lists for “Top Album,” including those compiled by the Associated Press, Billboard, NPR and Complex.
