Ari Lennox of Dreamville has returned with new music in the style of “If You Want Me to Stay.” The song is a version of Sly & The Family Stone’s legendary 1973 song of the same name, and she collaborates with Anthony Ramos from Hamilton.

“It’s always difficult to recreate a song that is so well-known, but I wanted to keep as loyal to my own sound and voice as possible, while also honoring Sly and respecting the original art,” Ari told Atwood Magazine.

Elite and Will Wells produced the video.
