The LVRN artist's original project landed last fall. Now, she's back with more R&B magic for listeners.

Last October, Alex Vaughn blessed our ears with The Hurtbook, on which her sweet and soulful voice rings out over eight featureless tracks. After leaving that to digest with listeners through late 2022 and into the new year, she returned this New Music Friday (March 17), with the Homegirl Pack version of her project, which boasts some seriously impressive guest features. For one, we hear her LVRN labelmate Summer Walker on the "So Be It (Remix)," which has already been streamed upwards of 4.5 million times on Spotify.

Dreamville's own Ari Lennox comes through on the next title, "Demon Time (Remix)," which beautifully blends her voice with Vaughn as they trade raunchy verses over the silky smooth beat. "Love it when I'm drippin' on you, grabbin' on my neck / Watchin' you, watchin' mе, I'm the best you evеr had," the "Needs" songstress croons on the refrain.

For her part, Lennox sings about her incessant hunger for a jaguar, whom she's willing to climb a tree for. "Talking to some dudes, but I'm f*ckin' you / Satisfied / Oven toast you right for that creamy pipe / Let it stay inside," her flirtatious lyrics continue before both women come together to make music magic on the chorus.

Elsewhere on her updated project, Vaughn tapped singer-songwriter Muni Long to help her with "IYKYK." As expected from the two beauties, the track is quickly picking up traction and earning the praise it deserves online. "Thank you so much @arilennox @munilong @summerwalker for sharing your gifts w me on this project," the young starlet wrote on Instagram earlier this weekend. "I am so grateful. y’all are SUPERHEROS."
