Good lawd! Elle Varner can definitely hit a note.
Last night, the songstress was spotted at the EBC Celebrity Basketball Challenge, where she belted out a soulful version of the National Anthem.
Afterward she caught up with our friends over at True Exclusive where she revealed how her new album, Four Letter Word, will be much different than her debut, Perfectly Imperfect.
I’m making a very cosmic shift with my career with this album. It’s all about artistry and being authentic with the music and the message. It’s more soulful…soulful in the sense that you feel it in different ways. You can always go and listen to Perfectly Imperfect or you can listen to Four Letter Word if you want to get to the nitty gritty.
Watch Elle do her thing below:
Nelly may have thought he didn’t have any problems with Floyd Mayweather, but he certainly has them now now that he has questioned the champ’s intelligence on national TV.
The St. Louis rapper was on ESPN’s Highly Questionable on Tuesday and when asked about his beef with Floyd Mayweather, he revealed that it was all just one big misunderstanding. He told the guys:
First he cut ‘em off, and now K Camp is showing gratitude to the special lady in his life in the cinematic video for “Blessing,” the second single off his debut EP In Due Time. When the Atlanta rapper hits it big, he helps pay for his ex-girlfriend’s college tuition, but her new man get jealous of their relationship and reacts violently.
“It’s real deep, something different for me,” K Camp told Rap-Up. “It’s like we shot a movie. I did one performance scene and everything else was acting.”
The video carries a powerful message: “It’s easy to get caught up with the day to day, but don’t forget to hold on to your Blessing.”
K Camp has been working on his full-length debut, and has been in the studio with Ty Dolla $ign, Problem, and Big Sean.
Witness the tragic ending to his love story.
When he’s not in the studio with Migos, Wiz Khalifa, and 2 Chainz, Metro Boomin is prepping his own album 20 & Boomin. The 20-year-old Atlanta beatmaker pops tags on “Chanel Vintage,” the first single featuring Future and Young Thug, who add some swag to the designer-drenched track.
In addition to his solo project, Metro Boomin is putting the finishing touches on his collaborative album with Young Thug, Metro Thuggin.
Hear them turn up in the name of fashion.
From Mary J. Blige to Miley Cyrus, French Montana pays tribute to the baddest chicks in music in the Eif Rivera-directed video for “R&B Bitches” featuring Fabolous and Wale. The Coke Boy is surrounded by ladies as he cruises in his yacht, and hollers at one of his dream girls, Ashanti.
Banks is back. After parting ways with Universal Music earlier this month, Azealia returns with her new single “Heavy Metal and Reflective,” which she released via her own label, Azealia Banks Records.
On the throbbing banger, the Harlem spitfire slings some bossy bars, rapping about everything from Billie Jean to Tamagotchis.
Future gets animated in the video for his new song “Coupe.” The Freebandz rapper stunts on the streets, pushing 140 mph as he races against the devil, but his joy ride comes to an end when his mom finds out.
The track is part of Adult Swim’s singles series, and will be available for free download on Monday, July 28.
Fresh off his North American tour, Future has announced the European leg of the “Honest Tour.” The 18-date trek kicks off in Birmingham, U.K. on November 2, and stops in major cities including London, Paris, Milan, and Berlin.
Watch him push it to the limit.
Does Iggy write her own rhymes?
That’s the million dollar question that everyone wants to know, especially after Nicki Minaj seemed to allude that Iggy doesn’t during her “When you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it” BET Awards speech back in June.
For some reason or another, folks think it’s T.I. that’s penning those catchy rhymes, but he says that is not the case.
During a recent interview with Detroit’s 105.7 radio station, TIP was asked about the ghostwriting rumors, and he said there is no way possible that he could write her lyrics for her. He also kind of confirmed that she’s writing her own songs:
Well aren’t these two adorable!
Nelly and Shantel Jackson are still going strong. As what? Who knows, but they look pretty chummy.
Back in April, shortly after Miss Jackson broke up with boxer Floyd Mayweather, Nelly scooped her up by commenting on how good she looked on her Instagram page and making her his Woman Crush Wednesday. He eventually took her to a Heat vs. Bobcats playoff ame in North Carolina and the rest is social media can get you a date history.
