We’ve been chatting about the demise of R&B music for weeks but all is not lost. Indeed, there is a small of group artists who still represent the best qualities of the suffering genre and this week’s Burning Up star, Elle Varner, is one of those acts.
Featured on the RCA Records, Varner is currently preparing for the release of her ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ debut album later in 2012. The record is preceded by the lead single, ‘Only Wanna Give It to You’, which includes an appearance by J. Cole. Watch the video for the tune below:
Varner’s raspy vocals are quite intriguing and the way that she delivers her lyrics proves that she has a great understanding of music. Better yet, she writes her own songs! Yes people, Varner is a well-rounded artist and not just another basic performer with a good voice.
It would interesting to see how Varner ranks when she releases ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ later this year. The video for ‘Only Wanna’ has already garnered over three million hits in just seven months so it is clear that she has attracted an impressive following.
