Ari Lennox is keeping it all the way real especially when it comes to her dating life.
In a recent interview, the “BMO” singer revealed that dating hasn’t been easy for her but she is learning to date with intention. “I learned with dating, ask specific questions, ‘Are you a rapper? Do you play basketball?’ Like, I need to know specifically.”
She continued, “I will never be able to trust that you genuinely want to be here for me and not try to get to Cole or Dreamville or Interscope or like.” The conversation then switched to the meaning of her song Pressure.
“It was really about me, honestly,” she said, “Feeling myself and feeling really sexy. And demanding that whoever comes into my life, you have to work. You have to show me why I should give you my time, and I wanna feel like you’re attracted to me, and you wanna respect me.”
Ari stated that there were some rappers that ruined dating for her but she won’t reveal who those rappers were. The singer released her second album age/sex/location which is the follow-up to her first album.
This latest album is based on what it’s like dating in today’s society. “I remember the countless times I was kicked out of dating apps because they didn’t think I was really myself, it reminded me of those chat rooms. I spent so much time seeing the god and good in some abusive people.”
