Elle Varner Warms Hearts In The Wake Of Michael Brown Tragedy With "One Love"

Elle Varner lets loose a heart-wrenching, slow-cooked groove with the release of “One Love,” warming hearts in the wake of the Michael Brown tragedy that is still unfolding in Ferguson, MO. This is no rework of Marley’s iconic cut, more an ode to the victims of mindless police brutality the world over and a somber lighter to the air in their memory. Varner gives a soaring vocal treatment with her raspy, affectionate vox over a phaser-heavy production that appeals to anyone and everyone who’s ever lost a loved one.

Varner joins the likes of Killer Mike, J Cole, Frank Ocean and countless others in speaking out on the violence in Ferguson, striving to add meaning to the madness without provoking anymore unwarranted beatings, rubber bullet shootings or tear gassings. The offering is presumed to be off Elle’s upcoming Four Letter Word project, which has already seen a score of releases with “Cold Case,” “See Me Tonight,” “Little Do You Know” and “Fuck It All,” but we’re holding tight for an official release date. Be sure to check back for the latest from the young Elle Varner, but in the meantime, get touched by her latest set of sonics and stream “One Love” below.
