Varner brings the Roc Nation rapper to her vibrant world in the Orson Whales-directed music video.
Elle Varner has debuted a vibrant music video in support of her debut single called "Only Wanna Give It to You". In the Orson Whales-directed clip, the young singer/songwriter shares screen with J. Cole who lends his vocals to the song.
The single is co-written by Varner and Cole as the first offering from her upcoming first studio album "Perfectly Imperfect". The song has been released since August, but the album will be made available for purchase later this fall.
Talking about what she has to offer in the upcoming album, Varner promises "a fresh new sound" which has rock and classic influences. She takes music inspirations from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Bob Dylan.
