By Uptown Toney

Ever since Atlanta-native ELHAE blessed us with single “Drive Me Crazy” late last year, we’ve been huge fans of his R&B blended Soul-Trap styling’s. Best believe we’re not the only ones. People of all ages and backgrounds seem to be pulled in by ELHAE’s alluring vocals and fantastic songwriting which made the Southern-based crooner’s recently released AURA EP the critically acclaimed success that it is today.

To show his appreciation, the versatile Dream Loud singer-songwriter connects with frequent collaborator, German producer/DJ Rascal for a soul-filling record entitled “End of Time (Angels).” Sampling Justin Timberlake‘s 2006 Beyoncé-assisted FutureSex/LoveSounds cut “Until the End of Time,” altered vocals are looped alongside high pitched electronic sounds and a deep rumbling bass creating a lustful energy for ELHAE work off of.

The outcome is an amazing half rapped, half sung dazzling display of silky bedroom R&B for the modern (wo)man. As ELHAE begins to release new visuals while he works on his next project, stream “End of Time (Angels)” below. For all those waiting for “Take Care,” be patient. It’s coming soon!
