Ari Lennox and Queen Naija feed off of one another’s energy on their latest single. The track is set to appear on Queen Naija’s deluxe edition of her debut album.
Lennox and Queen Naija previously teased the single a few days ago via social media.
“Set Him Up” is a vibe, it’s packed with sexually charged lyrics, a pleasing chorus, and overall it’s an enjoyable listen. Long story short, both singers are singing about the same person so they decide to meet up with him at the same time. This happens after they realize the person they’re both captivated by has been lying to them both.
On the single, Queen Naija says, “I had so much fun recording this song with Ari! We started recording it a while back and I’m excited we were able to come together and get it finished.” She added, “I know a lot of women who have actually realized they’re dating the same guy. We thought ‘Set Him Up’ would provide a fun take on this crazy kind of situation!”
The 24-year-old singer is gearing up to release the deluxe version of her debut album misunderstood… still which is releasing on April 16. “Set Him Up,” and four other tracks will appear on the deluxe edition. There will be appearances by Wale (“Butterflies Pt. 2”) and J.I The Prince of NY (“Love Is…”).
As for Ari Lennox and what she’s been up to, she recently shared a set of images alongside singer/songwriter and producer DJ Camper. We’re excited to see she’s back in the studio in 2021, especially since fans are anticipating her follow-up to her debut Shea Butter Baby. Also, she’s been dropping tiny hints here and there that she’s recording on social media (we’re paying attention to all the sneaky hints).
In February, Ari appeared on Lucky Daye’s Table For Two EP on “Access Denied.” Over the past few months, she has dropped “Chocolate Pomegranate,” a sensual single, and “Grounded,” an easygoing loosie. Here’s to hoping that she blesses us with a full-length album before summer sets in.
