Ari Lennox ushers in cuffing season with the video for her aptly titled new single ‘POF.’

Serving as a continuation of sorts from the ‘Hoodie’ visual, Lennox’s latest offering sees her lean into the title of the song (which is an acronym for ‘plenty of fish’) and its lyrical narrative about searching for “the one.”

Rapper Isaiah Rashad makes another appearance in the clip, which showcases the R&B songbird on a string of unsuccessful dates…until a unique encounter sets the wheels in motion for a dramatic twist.

‘POF’ is lifted from Lennox’s critically-acclaimed sophomore album ‘age/sex/location’ – which is also home to the Gold-certified ‘Pressure.’
