Her smooth tone, gentle vibrato, attractive octave range, with consistent flowy soulful RnB instrumentals make Ari Lennox’s sophomore album “age/sex/location,” a Contemporary / RnB masterpiece that also offers a diverse production to keep things soulful, vulnerable, and emotional throughout the entire project.
“Destined for greatness” is always what my mama said. Young Black woman approachin’ thirty with no lover in my bed. Cannot settle, I got standards, NASCAR racin’ in my head”
The retro clatter of the RnB beat and the conflicting tap of the soulful “POF” builds a vastly attainable sensual mood from the start, with a quite nostalgic neo-soul vibe. Weave in these deep verses, passionately and cleanly blended, and things will gradually but steadily shift towards totally fresh realms.
“You know how these things go. Ready if you say so.”
The jazz-trap instrumentation makes up the arguably simplistic soundscape, yet they never fail to intrigue and keep the listener engaged with the complex structure and layered elements.
Waste My Time
“Waste my time. Get on my line. Cause I got the time to waste”
Silky and sticky vocals directed with breathy intend and multiple layers of delicacy on Ari Lennox’s uniquely winding, the self-aware new retro-pop track “Waste My Time” shines through, especially at 2:10.
“Takes a lot to excite me. Baby, give me what you got. I’m a tough cookie… baby, hit the right spot.”
Pressure introduces the skillfully meandering vocal harmonies of Ari Lennox in a way that feels acquainted yet also indicative of an artist ready to pave their own way, with a likable beat that injects a level of weight and easily recognizable styling into the retro-soulful track.
Vintage online dating and the idea of catfishing back in the 90’s are explored on this interlude track.
“There’s magic in your eyes. I genuinely hope that you’re alright.”
This was one of my favorite tracks, with a feeling of nostalgic 90s vibes. Introducing the track with a beautiful whistle note, harmonic and silky jazzy vocals are direct with breathy harmonies and multiple layers of delicacy on Ari Lennox’s uniquely winding, self-aware new soulful song Mean Mug. Beautifully crafted, with a longer-form melody than most pop songs, fusing that RnB meander with a more comforting jazzy-trap structure for something that essentially delivers the best of both worlds.
Boy Bye ft. Lucky Daye
“My angel, angel. And I love all your angles, angles”
In both sound and lyrics, Ari Lennox’s voice is becoming increasingly distinct from the rest of the artist’s repertoire. In addition to being familiar and appealing, it authentically conveyed the song’s atmosphere, presented honesty, and revealed exposure. All while weaving through a fun series of flows with Lucky Daye’s vocal assistance, that continually return to the creative and melodically captivating hook.
“Come take me higher, Heaven angels gon’ believe. Said come on, baby. You got me waitin’, waitin’, waitin’ Stop by, baby, undress me”
“Stop by” is something different coming from Ari Lennox corner, fusing together a catchy 90’s soundscape with theatrical story-telling origins and a blissfully soulful RnB vocal – the result is something that feels like rhyme and ultimately paves the way for a more creative, sensitive, and immersive RnB of yesterday’s realm of tomorrow.
“Say, whether you bought your body. Whether you worked your body. Love your body (Hey)”
The modern girl-power anthem with an urban twist… “Outside” sheds new light on the artist, striking a chord with spectators because of its transparency, fragility, purity, and the powerful artistic thread that runs through the work. Perfect for a night out in the city and my personal favorite from the ARTIST line.
“I’m leakin’, you got me drippin’ (Drippin’.) Holy water, that’s what you drinkin’. I’ll makе you drown way in the deep end”
The hands-down, sexiest and best vibe on the entire album! The melodic r&b vocals are sensually introduced seamlessly each time, and the harmonies are at the forefront of the track, and constantly take the spotlight. With the assistance of Chloe Bailey, “Leak It” introduces the skillfully meandering vocal harmonies of Ari Lennox in a way that feels acquainted yet also indicative of an artist ready to pave their own way, with a likable beat that injects a level of weight and easily recognizable styling into the track.
“Feelin’ too accessible. Exhaustin’ the only peace I’ll ever know. Searchin’ for something tangible. Privacy is cardinal”
The effect of “Blocking You” is to draw the listener’s attention to the soft and soulful rhythm and…of course, Ari Lennox’s vocals in the background. Or, more precisely, the intimacy of the lyrics — there’s a wide range of them on display.
“Queen Space” ft Summer Walker
“There’s one thing we should speak on. This royalty you’re seekin’. Don’t have a problem even (No, no.) There’s something I am sure of. I deserve something purer. My love is a privilege (Yeah)”
As a result of the overall mood shift of Queen Space, the audience’s spirits are lifted as a result. It is only a brief moment, but the swagger and empowerment of the lyrical passages are swiftly restored, and we begin to connect with the bold and beautiful undertones that run throughout this song by Ari Lennox and Summer Walker.
