Elle Varner & J. Cole ‘Settle Down’ in New Video — Watch
On her debut single, ‘Only Wanna Give It to You,’ emerging R&B singer Elle Varner — one of TheBoomBox’s ’15 Artists to Watch’ — tells some lucky dude that she wants him “more than a new pair of shoes.” Now that there’s a video to go with the tune, it’s clear why that’s such a come-on.
In the brand new clip, directed by Orson Whales, Varner reveals herself to be quite the fashionista, rocking brightly colored retro blazers as she shops for high heels and high-tops to complement her ’90s-style wardrobe.
After she finishes perusing the racks, the singer cruises around with friends in a yellow Jeep and kicks it with dudes rocking fades, old-school track jackets and gold dookie chains.
Toward the end of the video, ubiquitous hip-hop riser J. Cole shows up and professes his love for Varner, whose ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ album — due out later this fall — is bound to win her plenty more admirers.
“Girl, you make me wanna settle down with you,” Cole raps, “get a crib with a view/ Lay up in the bed, make a kid, maybe two.”
