With only a week left in 2012, we asked some of your favorite stars to share their favorite albums of the year. We kick things off on this Christmas Eve with Elle Varner. The R&B songstress has enjoyed a big year with her debut album Perfectly Imperfect, which spawned the hit singles “Only Wanna Give It to You” and “Refill.”
So which five albums made Elle’s list? Here’s a hint: One was hailed by both The New York Times and TIME, the other scored the most Grammy nominations, and one album she even co-wrote on.
