"Cocoa Butter" was released as a single on iTunes on April 9. It is the second single that Arie has released from her forthcoming album, SongVersation, that will be released on June 25.
India.Arie last dropped an album in 2009 with the release of Testimony: Vol. 2, Love & Politics. The highly awaited and anticipated SongVersation will be Arie's fifth studio album to be released.
Arie shared her sentiments about the making of SongVersation in a statement that was reported by E! News:
"The making of this album has been one of the most important experiences of my career. Every time I make an album, it's an important and tumultuous and nuanced and complex and dynamic process of going into the woods and coming out with the Holy Grail…the Holy Grail being the internal growth that becomes fertile ground for new songs. This album was a process of many journeys all happening at once, culminating in not just a fertile ground, but a fertile ground on a different land."

It's been awhile since we've heard new music from Ms. Arie. As an India.Arie fan, I am ecstatic to have some new music from her. The video was well done and beautifully captures the essence of the new love who Arie sings about who is like "cocoa butter" on her heart.
