As Ari Lennox gets closer to releasing her sophomore album, age/sex/location, the Grammy-nominated singer shares more details.
After much anticipation, Lennox has finally revealed the album tracklist. The 12-track album will include guest appearances from Chlöe, Lucky Daye and Summer Walker. The latter singer appears on “Queen Space,” which Lennox released last week as part of her Away Message EP.
“This album is the transitional space before my current eat pray love journey,” Lennox shared.
For each collaborator, Lennox shared warm words of gratitude. “@ChloeBailey you are the realest angel. A super legend ready to take over the world that’s rightfully yours. Don’t know anyone who works as hard as you other than cole and lil baby,” she tweeted to Chlöe.

Lennox’s upcoming LP is the follow-up to her debut album, Shea Butter Baby, which released in 2019. It ranked at No.1 on Rated R&B’s Best R&B Albums of 2019 list.
“Shea Butter Baby introduces this generation to a unique voice easily comparable to Badu, as Lennox’s voice is almost instantly recognizable,” wrote Anders Hare.
The album scored Lennox her first platinum-selling single (“Shea Butter Baby” featuring J. Cole). It also produced other hits such as “BMO” and “Whipped Cream,” which both are certified gold by the RIAA for selling more than 500,000 equivalent units each.
