During Dreamville’s NBA All-Star Weekend takeover in Charlotte, N.C., the duo debuted a live performance of “Shea Butter Baby” together, and now they’re following up with the release of the song’s official video.
The intimate tune, produced by Elite (Dreamville) and Shroom, combines Ari’s sensual, neo-soul sound with J. Cole’s dynamic presence to ultimately deliver a poetic and evocative visual. The warm-brown tones throughout the visual offer an intimate vibe that matches the song’s already-sensual feel.
Together, Lennox and Cole’s chemistry proves to be the ultimate combination, effectively showcasing their creative talent and electric bond.
Ari is gearing up for the release of her debut solo album, also titled Shea Butter Baby, soon. Additionally, the R&B songstress is expected to appear on Dreamville’s upcoming Revenge of the Dreamers III compilation.
