New Music: Elle Varner f/ A$AP Ferg – ‘Don’t Wanna Dance’

Don't Wanna Dance

Elle Varner has been warming up for her sophomore album 4 Letter Word with songs including “Cold Case” and “See Me Tonight,” but she finally delivers the first single. The R&B darling grabs A$AP Ferg for the delightful “Don’t Wanna Dance.”

Over a sample of Kanye West’s “We Don’t Care,” she sings about a typical night out at the club with her girls. But instead of listening to the DJ play Weezy, she wishes she were at home with her loved one.

Ferg, who’s been collaborating with everyone from Ariana Grande to Haim, tells his lady to get back home so he can pamper her.

4 Letter Word is due this fall. “It’s an open letter. It’s my heart. It’s my feelings. It’s my growth,” Elle said of the follow-up to her 2012 debut Perfectly Imperfect. “I talked about a lot of the coming-of-age things that girls go through and now I’m a young woman and going through different stuff, so you’ll hear about it.”

    I got a feeling that this album is gonna be such a breath air. Loving this song, not as good as “Cold Case” but perfect for the summer.

    I love this! Elle always makes amazing, and relatable music to me. I think she’s one of the most amazing artist, especially in R&B, to emerge in the recent years. She has such a alternative R&B sound.

    Elle’s songs are so simplistic but so refreshing at the same time. Great song with a great message! This one is definitely for the more laid back crowd who would prefer to stay in on a Friday night instead of going out all night. R&B is on the upside right now. Marsha’s dropping her new album on Tuesday while Elle, Jazmine Sullivan and Jhene Aiko are gearing up to drop theirs. I’m excited! I hope “Four Letter Word” drops sooner rather than later!
