Dreamville’s first lady, Ari Lennox, is hitting the road for her very first headlining tour.
‘The soulful singer announced her Shea Butter Baby Tour today (March 27) via Instagram, and will be making stops at 20 major cities across the U.S. “My very first headline tour… for my shea butter babies. Tix go on sale this Friday,” Lennox captioned the announcement.
The tour kicks off in Phoenix May 12 and concludes in her hometown of Washington D.C. in June. Tickets go on sale this Friday and can be purchased here.
Lennox’s single “Shea Butter Baby” featuring J. Cole was released on the Creed II: The Album soundtrack late last year. The accompanying music video was released in February 2019, and has gained widespread popularity with fans.
Since signing with Dreamville four years ago, the self-described “new soul” singer has produced a number of soulful R&B ballads, including “Whipped Cream,” “Backseat,” and “GOAT.” Lennox also recently finished recording her debut album, Shea Butter Baby, which is due ahead of the tour this spring.
