Elle Varner dropped from RCA...

Sadly, Elle Varner's name no longer appears on RCA's official artist roster, pointing to the conclusion that she may have been dropped.
Her sophomore album '4 Letter Word' was suppose to drop two years ago, and she even released a couple of songs in the lead-up.

Rewind to 2016, and... nothing. Such a damn waste of talent. She actually has really good music. Is this what Tinashe's future really looks like?

New Music: Elle Varner feat. 50 Cent – ‘Birthday’...

First single off new album...
Elle Varner dropped a grimy new banger, called 'Birthday,' featuring 50 Cent. On the lusty number, Elle offers her lover with affection as if it's his birthday... every day. 

The rapper also uses his famous “Go shawty!” line from his 2003 birthday hit 'In Da Club.' The pair also performed the song live on Tuesday night in NYC for the first time during the POWER premiere concert. The song is quite the catch, and can be found on Elle’s upcoming sophomore album '4 Letter Word.'

R&B stars come out at Soul Train Awards...

The Soul Train Awards 2014 took place at the Las Vegas’ Orleans Arena on Friday night. 

Hosted by Wendy Williams, the show saw past and present R&B stars being honoured with some legendary reunions, show-stopping medleys, and all-star tributes. There were even performances from Chris Brown, Tinashe, Jodeci, and much more.

Elle Varner premieres emotionally charged new video ‘F**k It All’...

Aint nothing like a woman scorned, and a badly scorned one at that.

Fellas may want to think twice before messing around on Elle Varner. The cinematic visuals tells the tale of a woman who finds out her man has been cheating. She tries to stifle her pain during a rural romantic vacation, but it all becomes too much and she CRACKS big time. With fatal consequences.

K. Michelle comes for Elle Varner again on ‘The Breakfast Club’...

Give K. Michelle a positivity test and she will fail it ten times over. Actually, if she passed, it would probably kill her. Seriously. I just don't think it's possible for this chick to have one positive interview. 

During her sit-down with 'The Breakfast Club', she criticises former friend Elle Varner for copying her (again) and highly disrespects Lil Kim (and Kim's fans too.)

Elle Varner performs 'Don't Wanna Dance' on 'The Queen Latifah Show'...

Kicking off the new season of ‘The Queen Latifah Show’ was Elle Varner with her latest single 'Don’t Wanna Dance', minus A$AP Ferg.

This served as the first televised performance of the homebody anthem, which is lifted off her upcoming sophomore album '4 Letter Word' (due later this year). Elle did a really good job with this performance. Matter of fact, the song sounds even better live!

Video premiere: Elle Varner ft. A$AP Ferg – ‘Don’t Wanna Dance’...

Sometimes a girl just wants to spend a quiet evening at home with her man.  Elle Varner drops the visuals for her new single ‘Don’t Wanna Dance’ featuring A$AP Ferg. In the video, Elle isn't enjoying the party spirit and gets into dispute with her boyfriend at the club. 

The track is lifted off her upcoming new album '4 Letter Word', due later this year. Check out the music video after the jump.

Watch: K. Michelle disses Elle Varner...

One thing no one can say about a K. Michelle interview is that she fails to bring in the punches! When she dropped by Ebro In The Morning at Hot 97, she had some not so nice things to say about her former friend Elle Varner. 

K. Michelle accuses Elle of stealing her songs, style and personality. She goes in on Elle for like a good seven minutes and it was very interesting to say the least. K. Michelle’s Rebellious Soul: The Musical airs tonight on VH1.

Cliffnotes and video inside!

New Music: Elle Varner – ‘One Love’...

In wake of the police shooting that left African-American teenager Michael Brown dead, Elle Varner drops her peace anthem 'One Love,' inspired by “all that’s going on in the world.” Sadly, history just keeps repeating itself. However, spreading that positivity and advocating change through music is very inspiring. 

Great song and message! At present, Elle is currently hard at work on her sophomore album 'Four Letter Word', which is due later this year.

Watch: Elle Varner slays US National Anthem at Barclay Center...

Sang it girl. Elle Varner sure blew us away with her powerful rendition of the US National Anthem at last night's EBC Celebrity Basketball Challenge. That chick has vocal chops for days and she certainly delivered on that front. The game took place in Brooklyn at the Barclay Center.
Elle is hard at work recording her sophomore album 'Four Letter Word', which she briefly spoke about after the performance. Elle says the project is all about the artistry and being authentic. Check out the performance below.

New Music: Elle Varner – ‘Don’t Wanna Dance’ (ft. A$AP Ferg)...

Elle Varner drops the first single off her sophomore album '4 Letter Word.' The A$AP Ferg-assisted 'Don’t Wanna Dance' samples Kanye West’s 'We Don’t Care' and sees the singer moping at the club because she's not at home with her man. Ferg's verse cosigns that as he tells her she could be snuggled up with him watching re-runs of Martin instead. Sweeeet. As cute as the song may be, there have been stronger contenders for first single.
She's previously released 'Rover,' 'Cold Case,' 'See Me Tonight,' 'Little Do You Know,' and 'F**k It All.' She experimented with those and I loved the Amy Winehouse vibe she had going on. This one sees Elle returning to the '90s hip-hop sound. I think it's pretty safe to say we have a very good idea what Elle's album is going to sound like, because she's released HALF of it her damn self!

Watch: Elle Varner performs ‘Cold Case’ on ‘106 & Park’...

BET Music Matter's artist Elle Varner performed her new single 'Cold Case' off her upcoming sophomore album '4 Letter Word' during Monday's '106 & Park.' Seems Elle caught a gist of the holy ghost. She was truly feeling herself in this performance.

New Music: Elle Varner – 'Little Do You Know'...

The third installment of Elle Varner's '4 Letter Word' series continues. The Pop & Oak produced 'Little Do You Know' sees the singer deliver soaring vocals over the soulfully progressive R&B number. 

The song actually fits with the "trap jazz" fusion she spoke of recently and like the last song, it does have some Amy Winehouse influences to it.

New Music: Elle Varner – ‘See Me Tonight’...

Elle Varner's new song is awesome. It's like, jazz meets hip hop with that retro Amy Winehouse influence. ‘See Me Tonight’ serves as the second installment in her four-letter word series. An emotional Elle tries to unmask her hurt in yet another heartbreaking anthem. 

Elle's sophomore album '4 Letter Word' really is one to look out for this year.

Elle Varner announces new album ‘4 Letter Word’, unwraps new promo image...

If you loved Elle Varner's first LP like I did, be excited that her second album '4 Letter Word' is currently in progress! Over the next few weeks, she will deliver previews of four new songs. Each cut dedicated to a different four letter word that expresses the sentiment of the song. 

The first track, 'Cold Case' focuses on the word, love. Not the positive side of love, but when love turns sour and revenge is sweet. More deets inside.

Photos of the day: Pre-Grammy parties [Part Four]...

The biggest pre-Grammy party of all is always the one hosted by Clive Davis. Last night, Universal Music Group chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge was honoured at The Recording Academy’s annual Pre-Grammy Gala at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. Jennifer Hudson, who is there each year without fail, showed up looking good. She has always been hit and miss with her look but I like the dress (toning up the arms a bit wouldn't hurt). See who else was at Clive's party below.

Photos of the day: Pre-Grammy parties [Part Three]...

Rihanna, who has been hard at work on her next studio album, took a break from those recording sessions to attend all the pre-Grammy festivities. It would be the biggest of snubs if she did not attend the Roc Nation/Viva Glam Pre-Grammy Brunch because Jay Z was there and pretty much everyone else signed under his wing. All the pre-Grammy action inside.

New Years Eve snapshots...

So this hilarious photo should put a stop to those marriage split rumours! It's clear to see Nick Cannon still finds his wife extremely sexy. Here, he ogles Mariah's ample cleavage when she wore this VERY low cut New Year's Eve dress. And yes, her ass actually put this on Instagram. Gotta love MC for her Mimisms. Ha!
