Last February, Atlanta-based artist ELHAE—pronounced LA—released his AURA project, with samples of Michael Jackson, and two standout tracks—“Drive Me Crazy” and “Halfway Love.” Thanks to a feature from Jay Prince, eight soulful tracks, and some support from Soulection, ELHAE is gearing up for the release of his next project, All Have Fallen, out on Friday via Dream Loud Music Group and Atlantic Records.
Today, he gets fans hyped for the project with the release of the Walu-directed video for “Love a N***a,” produced by Ayo, Keyz and Eyo. “As soon as I uploaded ‘Love A N***a’ it really took on a life of its own,” he tells Complex over email. “Three months in and it was already at one million plays, which was something new to me. That song really helped the way I went into putting together the new project, [All Have Fallen] so shooting the video was the natural next step. I’ve been a fan of Walu’s work for a minute and he came up with a really dope concept, kind of reminiscent of 'Inception,' and I was instantly on board and love the way the final product came out.”
