Ari Lennox To Quit Music After Soul Train Awards Loss


Lennox, 28, caught the attention of some on social media after the conclusion of the annual Soul Train Awards over the weekend, which saw Lizzo‘s Cuz I Love You LP win the Album Of The Year award over Shea Butter Baby, prompting the singer to express disappointment for not winning an award for her efforts.

Lennox’s initial tweets to losing the AOTY honor read as follows:

Shea Butter Baby will always be special. I made a soul album for black people. I made my album for black people lol.

She returned to Twitter Tuesday (November 19) to share more thoughts about the industry and lashed back at those who found the singer’s expression of disappointment worthy of critique.

“You know what I realized? People who genuinely f*ck with me understand my frustration. People who are self hating haters and clearly have never given my music a chance got the biggest problem with me always,” Lennox tweeted. “No one will have to worry about me complaining after this current complaint. Lol what I will not do is ever be this depressed again.”

She added, “It’s not just an award. It wasn’t any award show. It was the soul train awards. As you can see I’m big fan of soul music and huge fan of soul trains history. Being snubbed was something I always expected and was definitely prepared for just not by them.”

Lennox tweeted later in the day, adding, “To all those annoyed with me, you got it. I won’t lose my mind over this sh*t. I will save my sanity first.”


Do you think shes acting a little out of line or is she right to feel the way she feels?
