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.
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.”
