So apparently, it’s not a Hot Girl Summer. Nor is it a City Boy Summer. It’s a Dreamville Summer. Period.
Still reeling from the buzz of the highly-anticipated and well-received collaborative album, Revenge of the Dreamers III, the Dreamville camp shows no sign of slowing down. The label’s latest masterpiece comes in the form of the astounding Ari Lennox, who has been signed to the Ville since 2015.
Lennox croons seductively over a sultry instrumental in “BMO (Break Me Off),” a track that actually made its debut back in May 2019 on her Shea Butter Baby project. The D.C. native brings the song to life in a nostalgia-inspired visual, which pays a bit of homage to hip-hop legend, Missy Elliot. The music video, directed by Child, sprinkles hints of the color red throughout, including a fiery-colored ensemble against an old-school metallic backdrop. The plethora of outfit and location changes makes the especially entertaining in a way that many haven’t utilized since the early 2000s.
She also dropped in with Colors Studios to give a soulful performance of “I Been,” another Shea Butter Baby track. Take a peek below.
