It’s not that often that the music lovers in my social media timelines pleasingly comment that a new video is innovative and the song that goes with it is catchy, so when I started hearing buzz about Elle Varner’s new joint “Refill” I had to check it out. You might remember Varner from last year’s single “Only Gonna Give It To You,” featuring J. Cole, or heard the mixtape Conversational Lush that she dropped earlier this year. “Refill” is the second single off of her debut album Perfectly Imperfect, and the video reminds me of the old days when videos took to the time to tell a whole story — between the chemistry that Varner has with the cutie pie in it and the story itself, this mini-movie does a great job of entertaining.

    If Kiely Williams and cbrown had a 23 year old girl , she would be Elle Varner. I watched her cover of a Miguel song on YT and thought she looked like cbrown in a wig.

    She sounds like Chrisette Michelle + Jazmine Sullivan on this song. A mix of Chrisette’s jazz styling with that raspy-raw sound I hear in Sullivan’s vocals.

    I didn’t mind the fiddle. It fit in more in the latter parts of the song.

    I can think of at least one performer who may eye this vocal for a future cover, -_-

    what happened to kiely? where is she? what is she doing?
    naturi is acting. adrienne is fvcking the kardashians.
    kiely is only 26 so maybe she went to college, to live normally?

    i love the fiddle. That is what made me lookup from the computer to see what was on tv( i was watching Centric and the rerun of Huxtables had gone off but I hadn’t turned off tv).

    the huskiness does make me think of jazmin sullivan.

    she graduated from NYU’s Clive Davis recorded music dept.
    i wish her success.

    ps, is she wearing a wig or does she have pieces added? i really like her hair.
