Elle Varner has revealed a new project as fans patiently await her sophomore effort, which has been delayed. The new project, a mixtape entitled ‘Ellevation,’ is expected to release on June 14th.
Elle Varner shared the mixtape’s tracklist, and it looks promising. Enlisting the soulful rap and poetry styles of Rhapsody and Wale to be featured on the nine-track project, Elle seems to be aiming for a winner with this tape.
Despite the announcement of ‘Ellevation,’ Elle is still teasing her sophomore project. She recently shared with Rated R&B that she’s particularly excited for one of the tracks on her forthcoming album:
“One of the songs I’m most excited about sounds like it literally came out of the 1980s. Some people call it ‘The Sade Song.’ There are no trap drums. It is analog. It is melodic. It is lyrical and I’m excited to just be like what’s good with this song.”
Though we are not happy about the wait on Elle Varner’s sophomore project, her ‘Ellevation’ mixtape seems promising. It will be interesting to see how the artist has grown since her first album, ‘Perfectly Imperfect,’ which released back in August of 2012.
