    Dreamville R&B crooner Ari Lennox has officially made her debut: Her first full-length album, Shea Butter Baby, dropped yesterday.

    Lennox joined Dreamville in 2015, dropping her first project for the label, the Pho EP, in 2016. The title track of Shea Butter Baby, which features J Cole, was on the tracklist of the Creed II soundtrack, which was curated by hitmaker Mike Will Made-It.

    Fellow Dreamville signee JID and ‘traphousejazz’ purveyor Masego also appear on the new 12-track album, on “Broke” and “Up Late,” respectively. Stream it below:
