Elle Varner Covers ‘AMMO’ Magazine, Talks Debut Album

R&B starlet Elle Varner takes the Spring 2012 cover of AMMO magazine. Inside the mag, the NYU grad talks about her latest single “Refill” and her upcoming debut album, Perfectly, Imperfect. 

“It’s, like, a singer/songwriter album. Like, if Alanis Morissette met hip-hop and R&B,” she said. “I write all my songs so I have that kind of approach as a songwriter but the tracks are just full of swag and just crazy stuff. There’s a lot of surprises in there; so it’s dope.”

The 23-year-old singer also shares her plans for the future. “What’s next for Elle Varner is world take over,” she said. “I think it’s time to take it back to the days when R&B was dominating and you had your Whitney Houston’s and your Mariah Carey’s and it was all good. I miss those days and I think it’s time for a change. I strongly feel that I’m a contender for that position.”
