J. Cole Praises Ari Lennox’s “age/sex/location,” Compares It To Alicia Keys’ Debut LP

No comments

The Dreamville leader praised Lennox for being able to make him “feel 14 again” with her latest release.

Ari Lennox‘s sophomore follow-up to 2019’s Shea Butter Baby has been a long time coming, and earlier this year, it almost sounded as if fans may never hear the album. Luckily, after a tumultuous start to 2022, the R&B diva is back and better than ever with a 12-track project, which she has titled age/sex/location, featuring appearances from Lucky Daye, Chlöe, and Summer Walker.

While fans have just begun listening to the new arrival, Lennox’s label head, J. Cole, has already shared huge praise and a co-sign over on Twitter.

“Ari Lennox album phenomenal,” the 37-year-old wrote early on Friday (September 9) morning. “Shit make me feel 14 again, like when I heard ‘Songs In A Minor,'” he added, praising his artist’s work to what Alicia Keys crafted on her debut LP in 2001.

The project contains tracks like “Fallin’,” “Piano & I,” and “A Woman’s Worth,” and took home a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album, Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Album, and the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Album, among other accolades.

Keys went on to release other projects such as As I AmThe Diary of Alicia KeysHERE, and most recently, the deluxe version of 2021’s KEYS, only raking in more flowers with each new release.



Lennox, for her part, shared a 5-track EP the week before age/sex/location hit DSPs, and around that same time, a video of her and Cole excitedly talking about her work in the studio surfaced online – read more about that here, and tap back in with HNHH later for more music news updates.
