One week after being nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Female Artist, Ari Lennox is so frustrated with the music industry, she’s demanding “to be dropped from the labels.”

The “Got Me” singer is signed to J. Cole’s Dreamville label which is distributed by Interscope Records. She also tweeted, “I’m done and tired.” Both messages have since been deleted.

Her public frustration follows an update she provided last week saying she only “needed 4 more songs and the album done.” It’s been nearly three years since Lennox released her debut album, Shea Butter Baby, in 2019. Last week Ari also tweeted that she “would love to just fall in love, start a family and live a peaceful life. Maybe perform once a year.”

In November, she traveled to The Netherlands and was arrested at the Amsterdam airport for disturbing the public order. Lennox claimed that she was the victim of racial discrimination.

Ari is featured on Khalid‘s new mixtape, Scenic Drive, and she is scheduled to perform at the Coachella Festival in April.
