“Keep your eyes on me” she sang on the upbeat song and it is a command that the 30-year-old singer makes easy. Wearing a white bodysuit decorated with crystals and covered by a lush white robe adorned with feathers, the Washington, D.C. native took to the stage for a short set, performing only the one song.
Lennox’s last album Shea Butter Baby was issued in 2019 to acclaimed reviews and was nominated for the Soul Train Award for Album/Mixtape Of The Year. In 2020, she issued a string of standalone tracks including “Bussit” and “Chocolate Pomegranate,” and was featured on songs with a range of artists including Kiana Lede, 6lack, and Goldlink.
“Pressure” was the first solo track released by Dreamville’s first lady in 2021. As fans await new music from the vocalist, Lennox has also joined her peers Summer Walker and Jazmine Sullivan on their respective projects Still Over It and Heaux Tales. She has also joined Lucky Daye, Vedo, and Lute for tracks released this year.
