It’s unanimous that the world is on high intensity these days. With unjust killings at least once a week, we were in need of a musical relief.
Elle Varner took the focus off her heartbreak driven album to drop a much needed uplifting track. Taking the reigns from Bob Marley and then Nas, she tried her voice with “One Love.” In light of the Mike Brown shooting, Varner uses her voice to release her peaceful protest.
“Imagine no one needing guns all at once, impossible maybe / But we’ve never tried it / The whole world in silence / Respecting each other, our gods, and our brothers, killin’ with kindness.”
When she released “One Love” she made it clear her agenda was for a peaceful message to ease the pain of Mike Brown’s family and the people of Ferguson.
“Over the past few tumultuous days I have prayed long and hard for Mike Brown’s family, the people of Ferguson, and the families of many others we have lost due this horrific death pattern,”. “With persistence, strategy, and intellect, we can not only obtain justice for Mike Brown but we can effectuate changes that will prevent these things from happening again!”
Elle said on her Instagram about the DJ Dahi produced track. She’s currently readying her sophomore album, Four Letter Word.
Press play to hear her promotion of love and unity.
