Elle Varner Liquors Up For New Single ‘Pour Me’ Ft. Wale

Elle Varner left 2018 with two single releases under her belt: She gifted fans with the modern throwback “Casanova” and the enticing music video for “Loving U Blind.”

Now, the Grammy-Award winning R&B artist returns with the emotional new single, “Pour Me,” featuring rapper Wale.

“Let’s make a deal, ’cause I ain’t ballin’ / Can we keep it real? ‘Cause I hate stallin’ / Clock’s tickin’ ever slowly,” sings Varner. “You could be gettin’ to know me / But I loved you as a homie / Now I’m cryin’ and sayin’, Poor Me!”

“Pour Me” is a song about drinking, and she begins to intoxicate, Varner begins to think about a lover. Wale opens the song with a poetic verse, and comes back to conclude his thoughts near the end of the track. The instrumental for “Pour Me” is swooping, employing finely-calibrated piano keys to give the song a classic vibe.

Wale and Varner previously worked together on “Rover” in 2013.

Fans can catch Varner performing her new record on the ‘NYLA’ tour with Marsha Ambrosius, running from Jan. 27 – Mar. 17. See Varner’s appearance dates below!
