Don't Wanna Dance

New Music: Elle Varner f/ A$AP Ferg – ‘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.”
