Prior to heading out on her highly anticipated age/sex/location tour, Ari Lennox gave her fans a treat in the form of her "Waste My Time" music video. The must-hear track previously made its debut on her sophomore album. We have to admit, it's been stuck in our heads ever since. As she performs all across the country over the next few weeks, the R&B starlet's surprises keep coming.

On Monday (February 27), yet another visual landed from Lennox. This one brings her recent collaboration with Babyface, "Liquor" to life in a big way. The producer plays the role of a bartender, and the vocalist channels a glamorous patron of his bar. The song first arrived on his Girls Night Out project last year and quickly became a favourite amongst listeners.

"I wanna feel like I'm wasted, from the lips that I tasted / I want our love to be agin' with time," the Dreamville artist's sultry lyrics set the tone of the first verse. "More vintage than wine, so smooth / I like it rough around the edges, picture perfect with no edits," she continues to croon. On the chorus, both Lennox and Babyface's beautiful voices come together to create a stunning soundscape. They specifically sing about taking two shots of "Liquor" with no chaser over the groovy beat.

It's been several months since Girls Night Out first landed on DSPs, but Babyface recently kept the hype around the record going with the arrival of the extended edition. All 13 original titles remain on the tracklist, which boasts guest features from the likes of Muni Long, Doechii, and Sevyn Streeter. Additionally, he's added two new songs – "Sometimes" with Jenevieve and "If You Knew How" with BJRNCK.
