Despite the pandemic, Juice Jam is on its way back to Syracuse University.

University Union announced that Juice Jam will take place via YouTube livestream this Sunday. This year’s Juice Jam will feature artists A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Ari Lennox, and Beach Bunny.

American rapper and songwriter, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie (Artist Julius Dubose) is best known on the current music scene for his singles, “Numbers” and “Drowning.” Dubose’s most recent album, Artist 2.0 features many well-known artists in the industry, such as Khalid, Gunna, and Lil Uzi Vert.

Ari Lennox is an American R&B singer-songwriter from Washington, D.C. Her debut album, Shea Butter Baby, was released last year via Dreamville and Interscope Records. The album was met with critical acclaim and landed the number one spot on the Associated Press’s Top Albums of 2019.  In February of 2020, Lennox was placed on BET’s “Future 40” list, which compiles  “40 of the most inspiring and innovative vanguards who are redefining what it means to be unapologetically young, gifted & black.”

Beach Bunny, an indie pop band from Chicago, released its debut studio album, Honeymoon this past Valentine’s Day. Formed in 2015, the group blends elements of emo and pop-punk. In addition to Honeymoon, Beach Bunny have four EPs to their discography. Fronted by Lili Trifilio’s soaring vocals,  some notable tracks from the band include “April,” “Painkiller,” and “Promises.”
