Elle Varner is officially R&B's newest "it" girl with a burgeoning career and an official endorsement from First Lady Michelle Obama. Recently, the BET Music Matters singer did a hot photoshoot for the premiere issue of Stuff Fly People Like (SFPL) magazine, channeling her inner sex goddess and rocking out a few colorful prints. In her interview with the new publication, she spilled on what it was like to get a shout out from the FLOTUS and her dream collaborations with a few incredible artists.
"I thought at first it was just a rumor but then I watched and it was definitely real. I was shocked but also very proud that the White House approves my music for their precious daughters to listen to," gushed Varner to SFPL.
With a sultry voice and level of artistry that has captured the attention of numerous fans, she has no plans of stopping and wants to combine her talents with a few special artists. She name dropped some of the latest and greatest male R&B singers and hip hop stars to SFPL as those that she hopes to get involved with her music.
"My dream collaboration at the moment would have to be with Frank Ocean or Luke James," she confessed. "I want to make a classic R&B collab like Marvin and Tammi Terrell. On a hip hop note, Drake on a song would be hot too!"
The rising songstress has already teamed up with rapper J. Cole on their popular hit "Only Wanna Give It to You." With a young career and abundance of skills, she's sure to attract more opportunities for creative collaborations, and explore the depths of her own artistry as well. The vocalist's "alter ego" shoot with SFPL has surely caught a lot of eyes, and her music will likely keep her fans' ears, too.
