Over the years, Ari Lennox has earned a reputation as one of the most requested R&B singers for hip-hop collaborations. So it’s no coincidence that rapper Buddy asked the platinum-selling artist to join him on his new single “Coolest Things” from his Superghetto album.
The beginning of the joint effort is guitar-charged, which leans towards the handiwork of D’Mile, one of three producers credited. A distorted drum pattern assists the production where Lennox takes the top note on the repetitive, trance-induced chorus.
“Sometimes the coolest things / Ain’t all that cool at all,” Lennox sings.
Buddy’s flow is infectious, rhyming about practicing safe sex and avoiding complacency.
“Coolest Things” follows Lennox’s recent teamwork with EarthGang on their song “Run Too.”

Earlier this month, Lennox amicably parted ways with her management company, Black Wax, and is handling her management.
“She still considers them family and is beyond thankful for the business ventures and memories,” said a spokesperson for Lennox. “She’s currently working on her sophomore album and is excited for the future endeavors that are in store for her.”
Lennox is set to release her sophomore album later this year. It’s Lennox’s highly anticipated follow-up to her acclaimed debut album Shea Butter Baby. One of the first album’s early singles, “Whipped Cream,” secured Lennox a gold plaque from the RIAA this month.
