“The Late Pass” is a category about things that I’ve found out about late, tv shows and movies that I never watched before, music I have never listened to, etc. If you have a late pass about something, post it in the comments!
So, the first installment of “The Late Pass” goes to me, SLEEPING and when I mean sleeping I mean in a COMATOSE STATE on this songbird, Elle Varner. I’ve heard “Refill” “I Don’t Care” but I just never thought enough to actually go out there and buy her CD. Truth be told, the only reason why I REALLY bought it is because I saw it on Amazon for $4. #DontJudgeMeDammit
When I put that CD in my truck, I promise you my truck just glided to every destination I went. There is NOT a song on Elle Varner’s Perfectly Imperfect that I skipped. NOT.A.ONE.
This album came out August 7, 2012 (been in a coma over a year, smh) and I JUST bought it on Black Friday, November 29th, 2013. WOW. If that’s not a “Late Pass”, then honestly I don’t know what is!
Elle Varner’s voice is just so full of soul, her songwriting kept me with her musical voyage. I related to every song. I LOVE that about music. No excessive cursing, no clothing brands mentioned, just perfect. Perfectly Imperfect…if you will. I can play this cd around my nieces, god children, nephews, my mom. It is such a DOPE album. The last time I felt this way about an album that I slept on that was just perfect was none other than Jilly from Philly!
Here’s Perfectly Imperfect’s tracklist
|1. Only Wanna Give It To You feat. J. Cole|
|3. Sound Proof Room|
|4. I Don’t Care|
|5. Not Tonight|
|7. Oh What A Night|
|8. Stop The Clock|
|9. Welcome Home|
|10. Damn Good Friends|
|11. So Fly|
When I listen to tracks 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10, I think about that special someone in my life and it just makes me smile and reminisce on who we are as a couple and how we are as friends and just how special this person is to me. Elle’s songwriting paints just THEE perfect picture. Tracks 7 and 11, lemmetellya I bounce soooo hard and sing/scream on the top of my lungs. HA! Those are my JAAAAAMMMMSSSSS! Her other tracks are sooo dope. This album is for ME, the crème de la crème.
Elle Varner is ONLY 24, she’ll be 25 on February 12th. (My birthday is February 11th, HOWEVER, I won’t be 25 lol) Elle being 24 years old and this as her first album? I feel it in my pinky toe there is going to be SO MUCH MORE of this level of just awesomeness from her.
She’s an Aquarius, so she rules ANY damn way! Seriously, if you have NOT picked up this album, make sure that you go check it out! Don’t worry, I won’t give YOU “The Late Pass”…unless, of course, you don’t check it out for yourself!
