On Tuesday, Dreamville’s first lady, Ari Lennox, dropped the video to her single, “BMO.” 

Directed by Child, the “BMO” video was inspired by ’90s R&B trio Total and Missy Elliott, according to Lennox who discussed the video on Twitter.

Lennox rocks her signature curly ponytail in the video, along with an all-white three-piece number and a red sequined bodysuit underneath a red puffer jacket that gives off ’90s vibes.

The “Shea Butter Baby” singer, who is known for celebrating natural hair, switches it up a bit and also rocks Bantu knots in one scene and a straight ponytail in another, following a luxurious bath in a pink tub adorned with baby’s breath and other flowers.

The bathroom that Lennox takes a bubble bath in looks as if it’s only meant for a Goddess. In the video, Lennox also switches between two lavender and orange colored faux fur coats, in true Ari Lennox fashion. She’s known for hitting the stage in a fur coat, no matter the weather.

The video concludes with Lennox checking on her garbanzo beans, that the singer references during a funny skit at the end of the single, on a blue-ish green stove that looks like it came from circa 1970.
