Ari Lennox came to this year’s Soul Train Awards wearing her freakum dress. The Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter dazzled the audience with a performance of “Waste My Time.”
Donning a bedazzled cami silver dress and rocking a high ponytail, Lennox served undeniable sex appeal and soulful sounds with support from a live band.
At the 2021 Soul Train Awards, Lennox performed twice, supporting her now-certified gold single “Pressure” and Summer Walker’s “Unloyal.” Both tracks reached No. 1 on the R&B charts earlier this year.
Shifting back to “Waste My Time,” it’s Lennox’s current R&B radio single from her sophomore album, age/sex/location. It’s now No. 17 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart at the time of publication.
On Sept. 9, Lennox unveiled age/sex/location as the follow-up to her beloved 2019 debut album, Shea Butter Baby. It opened at No. 13 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart and No. 69 on the Billboard 200 in the Sept. 24 issue.
Age/sex/location, which arrived a week after a surprise EP (Away Message), features guest contributions from Lucky Daye, Chlöe and Summer Walker.
Lennox, nominated for six 2022 Soul Train Awards, said her most recent album represents “the traditional space before my current eat pray love journey.”
On Jan. 23, 2023, Lennox will kick off her headlining age/sex/location Tour in Las Vegas, Nevada. No supporting acts have been announced at this time.
