Elle Varner On Sophomore Album: ‘It’s Unbelievable’

Elle Varner isn’t modest about her sophomore effort one bit. When Rap-Up caught up with the R&B break-out star at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, she had some powerful words to describe the new music she’s been working on: “It’s unbelievable,” she quickly replied. “I have to keep reminding myself it’s real.”

She promised a first single is on its way, but the process of releasing it is slowed down due to industry marketing and planning. “You know how it is; a song doesn’t just come out, they gotta put a whole thing, so that’s what’s happening right now,” she explained. As for a title, Varner says it’s something unique that’s not even a word. “It’s really interesting. If it’s the title I go with, it’ll be something that hasn’t been done before,” she said.

With Pop & Oak, Eric Hudson, The Interns, and Hit Boy on the production roster, Varner’s unique vocals, and an “interesting” title, “unbelievable” may just be the correct term after all!
