Atlantic Records has announced the eagerly awaited new project from acclaimed rapper/singer ELHAE. The “AURA II” EP arrived last Friday at all DSPs and streaming services. Along with the release of “AURA II,” ELHAE also dropped the new music video to his track “Something” off the EP.
Born Jamaal Jones, the North Dakota-native has crafted a remarkable bled of rap, soul, R&B, gospel, and more on such unique projects as his 2015 breakthrough, “AURA.”
ELHAE’s rare sound has quickly captivated both fans and media alike, with Bossip declaring he is “…poised to take over the R&B scene…” “‘AURA’ gave me my first real taste of success,” says ELHAE, “and I wanted to repay the fans for their support by giving them a sequel. While ‘AURA’ is mostly based on a broken relationship, ‘AURA II’ is based on where I’m currently at and the events that followed that time in my life.” Named one of Sprite’s “P.O.U.R. Purveyors of Urban Reality,” ELHAE signed with Atlantic in 2016 and quickly released the “ALL HAVE FALLEN” EP, available now at all DSPs and streaming services, which followed his nationwide tour with BJ The Chicago Kid and Marc E. Bassy.
ELHAE – which stands for “EVERY LIFE HAS AN ENDING” – has received a wide range of media attention in recent months. The ATL-based artist “weaves church-bred soul with unfiltered bars while pouring his heart on wax,” raved Billboard. “ELHAE is spreading his vibes and gaining a fan base due to his genuinely, organic performances,” declared The Source. “A constant flow of emotions and genres, this talent delivers aesthetically-charged music without compromising his realness.”
