Elle Varner, ‘Refill’ – Song Review
R&B newcomer Elle Varner has been making waves with her latest love ditty ‘Only Wanna Give It to You.’ The 22-year-old singer is on the right path to stardom and is being touted as the next Alicia Keys. She is back with a new song that her management team, MBK Entertainment, has announced will be her second single, ‘Refill.’
At first listen, the Oak and Pop-produced track sounds like it’s made for a hootenanny with its rapid violin-playing. But once Varner’s scratchy vocals begin and the 808 drum beat kicks, ‘Refill’ soon turns into a lovely soul ballad.
On the track, the songbird ask a potential lover for a refill of his quality time. “Can I get a refill? / Yeah, of your time/ ‘Cause you’re intoxicating my mind / Feel like a conversation, no rush / ‘Cause I don’t know how much is too much / I feel like the girl at the bar who’s been there too long / Can’t stand up,” she sings.
‘Refill’ is a wonderful song that could do well on urban radio if given the chance. Although we much prefer Varner’s hip-hop/soul side as heard on ‘Only Wanna Give It to You.’
Varner is currently prepping her RCA Records debut album ‘Perfectly Imperfect,’ which is due out in 2012.
