CRWN Magazine chopped it up with Ari on her creative process and what’s to come with new music.
“I want to be braver and riskier. I think people want to hear that kind of honesty and frankness.”
Peace to CRWN
Listen to PHO Here
Washington D.C. native and recent Dreamville/Interscope signee, Ari Lennox, released her highly anticipated EP, PHO.
“Sometimes women are put in this box where we’re only supposed to talk about certain things,” the 25-year-old singer-songwriter explains. “I want to be braver and riskier. I think people want to hear that kind of honesty and frankness.”
Inspired by some of the greatest female vocalists of all time: Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Minnie Riperton and Whitney Houston, Lennox modestly describes her own voice as “vulnerable and soulful; imperfect but pretty.”
The next stop on the highly successful and critically acclaimed 4 Your Eyez Only Tour continues next month in the down under. The whole team is looking forward to our fans in Australia.

Ari Lennox stopped by to talk to HOT 97 and Nessa about being signed to J. Cole’s Dreamville. Currently on the 4 Your Eyez Only Tour, she spoke about what it’s like to share the stage with J. Cole and how she got signed. She also talked about her EP Pho and why she named it that and her love for the soup. She also talked about if she’d rather have pho with Solange or Sza, getting it in in the backseat, the kind of guy she’s looking for, singing with Chaka Khan and wanting to know where her ancestors are from.

In theaters, 5/19.
