Dreamville’s first lady, Ari Lennox, took to Twitter on Thursday to vent about not getting radio play and the music industry not appreciating “real R&B”. 

Lennox began venting by tweeting, “I’m starting to realize artist aren’t “difficult” without reason. Half the sh*t we got to do really is bullsh*t.” She then went on to say that she’s never been good at kissing a**.

Included in Lennox’s myriad of passionate tweets, the singer also mentioned that her single, “BMO” doesn’t get enough radio play. “Radio sleeps on my music so much and I’m genuinely tired of giving my all to it,” Lennox wrote.

The “New Apartment” singer also said that she would like to know what artists do to get their music into “heavy rotation.” She said that although she’s signed (to J. Cole’s Dreamville imprint) she has no clue how to get garner more radio play.

“Tired of the industry. Tired of people sleeping on real R&B,” Lennox concluded while receiving tons of uplifting tweets from her fans.

On Thursday night, Lennox showered her fans with love via Twitter. “These tweets weren’t made to discredit my love and appreciation for my real supporters,” she said. “I’m just very aware of the politics of the industry. ”
