A good friend of mine introduced me to Miss Elle Varner’s music about two years ago, and I was instantly a fan.
Back then, her classmates at NYU had recently crowned her “Most Likely to Get Signed” and “Most Likely to Win a Grammy”, but the only songs of hers that I could find were a few (very impressive) covers on YouTube. Now fast forward to 2010. Her material is still just as rare, but she is quickly becoming one of the stars of our generation. Earlier this year she signed a deal with MBK/J-RCA Records, and opened up for none other than Alicia Keys. Miss Varner is well on her way to fulfilling the prophecy of her peers, and her debut album is scheduled to be released before the end of the year. In the meantime, she let loose this little surprise for us to enjoy, her remix of J.Cole & Miguel Jontel’s ‘All I Want Is You’. Enjoy.
