The Shea Butter songstress stopped by NPR’s studio to perform four tracks from her recent LP.

The latest edition of NPR’s Tiny Desk series features one of R&B’s breakout stars. Between her dates as an opener for Lizzo’s Cuz I Love You Too tour, Ari Lennox came home to the network’s DC offices to deliver a radiant four-song medley.
