Ari Lennox Releases a Cover of Dionne Warwick’s “Walk on By” Only on Amazon Music’s R&B Rotation

Today, rising R&B star Ari Lennox has released a cover of Dionne Warwick’s iconic single “Walk on By” only on Amazon Music. The track is featured as part of the launch of R&B Rotation, a brand-new global playlist from Amazon Music that spotlights the best new R&B tracks out each week.

Updating every Friday, the playlist offers a deep dive into the best in modern R&B, featuring everyone from exciting new talents like Ari Lennox to established stars such as Khalid.

“I picked walk on by because I’m going through a break up and felt it speaking to me,” said Lennox. “I’m also very inspired by Dionne and wanted to honor her.”

Ari Lennox’s Amazon Original comes after a whirlwind year for the newly minted R&B/soul star. Shea Butter Baby, her debut studio album, was released earlier this year to critical acclaim and commercial success, peaking at #7 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The singer recently released a sultry new video for “BMO,” an album highlight and the third single off Shea Butter Baby. Ari Lennox also was featured extensively on the breakout Dreamville compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III, helming standout tracks like “Self Love” and “Got Me.” Ari Lennox is also heading out on the road this fall, supporting Lizzo on the Cuz I Love You Tour. Full tour dates below.
