Ari Lennox was, apparently, unwell when she turned up to NPR's tiny desk to perform four songs from her excellent debut album Shea Butter Baby, but you wouldn't know it from watching her set above. The Dreamville signee flawlessly ran through "Speak To Me," "Pop," "New Apartment," and "Shea Butter Baby" backed throughout by keys player Chris Worthy, drummer CJ Trusclair, guitarist Taylor Gamble, bassist Jerome Lawrence, percussionist Stanley Banks Jr, and backing vocalist Dave James. Even the mid-set chatter is pretty good, which is remarkable on its own. Watch the video in full at the top of the page via NPR and listen to Shea Butter Baby below.
