New Music: Elle Varner – Where Your Man Is?

Elle Varner Where Your Man Is

Quite interesting.

Those are the words that come to mind when we hear the new sound that songbird Elle Varner is going with. Known for her raspy and powerful soul infused voice, the songstress is back with a brand new track for fans.

Titled “Where Your Man Is?” the cut is a continuation of the new sound that Elle has been rolling out. Set to be featured on her sophomore album, Four Letter Word, the song has Veezy letting all the girls know that their men are no good. Singing out, “It’s 9 o’clock on Sunday night, do you know where your man is?,” the newest release has her confirming that she is not interested in your p.o.s. of a man.

New Music: Charlie Wilson feat. Snoop Dogg – Infectious

Charlie Wilson Forever Charlie Album

Charlie Wilson will release his seventh solo album Forever Charlie on Jan. 27 via RCA Records. The project has been lead by the smooth singles “Goodnight Kisses” and “Touched by an Angel,” but now, only days before the LP hits stores, we get to hear one of the most anticipated tracks, “Infectious” featuring Snoop Dogg.

Charlie and the West Coast rap legend have had a relationship for many years, in fact Snoop is credited as giving him the nickname Uncle Charlie. They have worked together going all the way back to Snoop’s 1996 album Tha Doggfather. Now, Charlie calls on his old friend for a new groovy, up-tempo, reminiscent of his Gap Band days.

“She’s so infectious, she’s dancing reckless / She’s shackin bacon / Good lord, oow,” sings Charlie while Snoop backs him up with adlibs and a smooth verse.

On February 12, Wilson will hit the road on “The Forever Charlie Tour,” along with KEM and Joe.

Take a listen to his new collabo below, and you can pre-order Forever Charlie on iTunes now.
