Video: Elle Varner – ‘Cold Case’

Cold Case

Things fall apart in the video for her Elle Varner’s anti-love song “Cold Case,” which she debuted in March. A couple starts out in love, but as time progresses, their relationship eventually crumbles. The R&B songstress does not appear in the four-minute clip, but she uses black-and-white imagery to convey her message.

In October, she dropped the emotional video for “Fuck It All,” while her sophomore album 4 Letter Word is due next year featuring production from Pop & Oak, Eric Hudson, Da Internz, and Hit-Boy.

“My new album is unbelievable. I have to keep reminding myself that it’s real,” she told Rap-Up TV of the follow-up to her 2012 debut Perfectly Imperfect. “Everybody says to me, ‘Congratulations! Sophomore slump, what?’ and that’s all I gotta say about it. Get ready because it is unbelievable.”

Watch what happens when it all falls down.

Video: Tink – ‘Around the Clock’

Timbaland and Tink

Tink is taking over in 2015. Timbaland introduces his 19-year-old protégée in the dark and gritty video for “Around the Clock” featuring “The Breakfast Club’s” Charlamagne Tha God. The Chicago rapper-singer spits some killer bars while flanked by Timbo, who creeps in the shadows.

“Tim dropped the beat in the studio and it instantly gave me a hip-hop vibe,” Tink told The FADER. “I wanted the video to match that same feeling. Raw and simple.”

After being introduced through Da Internz, Timbaland signed Tink to his label Mosley Music Group, where she will release her debut in 2015. “I will put my whole entire money in my account on her. She is a superstar,” he said.
