With nearly 13 million listeners, “Pressure,” produced by Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox, and Elite, becomes the Washington, D.C., native’s first lead on any airplay format.
Written with its producers, as well as Johntá Austin and Jai’Len Josey, “Pressure” secured its first score in Lennox’s radio history when it landed her inaugural top ten on R&B airwaves a month after its release.

Though the song helped her pick up a 2022 NAACP Image Awards nomination for Outstanding Female Artist, she’s in the studio consistently working on completing her follow-up to 2019’s Shea Butter Baby, named the Best R&B Album of 2021 by Rated R&B.
If that weren’t enough, Lennox shared a teaser of a new song called “Mean Mug,” which she calls “so pretty.” The snippet has since been deleted.
