It’s been a long time — way too long — since we’ve heard any new music from India.Arie. So what a surprise to hear the Grammy-winning songbird’s new single, ‘Cocoa Butter.’

The metaphoric love ballad features Arie complementing a lover for healing her broken heart with an ointment of wisdom and love. “Your love is like cocoa butter on my heart / Your touch is like cocoa butter on my heart / Your kiss is like cocoa butter on my heart / Oh boy, you’re like cocoa butter on my heart,” she sings on the hook.

Arie further emphasizes her boo’s soothing remedy of affection on the bridge. She croons, “You rub it in when you listen / You rub it in with your wisdom / You rub it in with a kind word / When you rub it in there’s nothing like it.”

India.Arie is currently working on her new album, tentatively titled ‘Open Door,’ which is expected to be released this summer. The collection will be the follow-up to her 2009 LP, ‘Testimony: Vol. 2, Love & Politics.’

We are beyond thrilled to hear that India.Arie is returning to the R&B scene. Her cocoa butter smooth vocals are soothing our hearts right now.
