Singer Elle Varner did a cute photoshoot for the premiere digital cover of Stuff Fly People Like. Inside Elle talks on finding out she had fans at The White House saying, “I couldn’t believe it. I thought at first it was just a rumor, but then I watched [the video of Michelle Obama saying her daughter are listening to Elle Varner] and it was definitely real.”
“I was shocked but also proud that the White House approves my music for their precious daughters to listen to. I made an album that simply told my story, and that it could be appreciated by both a 14-year-old and her mother [is amazing].”
When asked about her unique musical style the singer revealed a desire to bring The Blues back to R&B. She said,
“I think Rhythm and Blues is missing the “Blues” and that emotional hits-you-in-your-chest feeling that it was built on. The rhythms are there but the quality and content just aren’t what they used to be. Luckily, there are a lot of artists right now not only making great R&B, but getting some mainstream shine as well. I plan to take my music to a worldwide level so R&B isn’t the one trying to squeeze into the picture, but actually standing proud in the center of the photo.”
