Ari Lennox is serving her fans with a sweet new track. The soul singer offers her latest single "Whipped Cream," a laid-back ode to unrequited love. Lennox wrote a relatable song that deals with the emotions that sprout from pinning for an old beau. The songstress breaks it down for us: “‘Whipped Cream’ is my little baby that expresses how I feel about an ex that I’m still not over. He’s the same n***a that I talked about in PHO."
Her debut album, PHO, dropped in late 2016, introducing the masses to her old school vibe. The Washington D.C. native describes her style as “modern, relaxed, turned up soul... reminiscent of the beautiful music from the ‘70s.” As for her vocals, the singer deems them to be "imperfect, but pretty."
The composition of "Whipped Cream" is definitely in line with this description, complete with horns leading to a harmonized vocal interlude. It was written by the lyricist herself and produced by Elite.
