Two days ago, award-winning R&B vocalist and songwriter Ari Lennox announced that her single ‘Whipped Cream’ from her debut studio album ‘Shea Butter Baby‘ has officially gone gold!

Ari’s milestone and the accolades that she continues to receive certainly attest to her reach as a musician. Her fans quickly responded with details about their admiration for her record. They also joked about how the song went diamond in their own homes. ‘Whipped Cream’  makes for the perfect breakup song because as Ari voices the tests of detachment, the sultry guitar strums and steady rhythm evoke a sense of comfort that many listeners have come to enjoy.  

Part of Ari’s storytelling brilliance is the way she makes light out of trying times. As she sings about her attempts to chase bliss through sweets and retail therapy, she goes on about her ex’s “deceivin’, receivin’, non-givin’ headass.” The comical verse (which seems like a witty double-entendre) speaks to the little breakthroughs we experience while getting over a breakup. You know —  those moments when we finally realize how ordinary our ex-lovers were. 

Dreamville producer Elite responded to Ari and expressed his excitement for their success. In doing so, he also explains how the contemporary R&B classic came together so naturally. 

Elite on Twitter: “So proud of this joint!!! I feel like its extra special cause it was created in such an organic way.. no expectations for it to go gold! it just did cuz yall loved it, means a lot. @AriLennox the truth! https://t.co/CdnZjXX9An / Twitter”

Hopefully, Ari will be releasing more music soon, considering the consistency and quality of all of her pieces. During an Instagram livestream earlier last week, she briefly showcased a few of her pending works which already sound promising.
