Rare groove enthusiast & musician Elhae brings his dynamic, emotive, and narratively rich blend of rap and R&B to Motown. To celebrate signing with the label, the Georgia-raised artist today releases the sensual single “Fun Fact,” which features the resonant, Grammy-nominated voice of rapper Rick Ross. (Listen HERE.) The song is both a tender request for physical intimacy and a swaggering avowal of self-confidence. Though this is Elhae’s first Motown release, “Fun Fact” produced by D’Mile (The Carters, Ty Dolla $, Victoria Monet) is another stirring addition to his sonically diverse catalog.
A smooth and downtempo affair with a deep bassline, the “Fun Fact” instrumental allows Elhae to blur genre lines so seamlessly that they cease to exist. In control during the verses, Elhae is overrun by passion on the charged hook: “I can’t control this feeling, baby / I need some sexual healing, baby.” Rick Ross follows with a verse that balances the highs of new romance with emotional maturity: “On the beach in Bahamas / If we speak, let’s be honest.”
“Elhae is such an incredibly dope artist,” says Motown President Ethiopia Habtemariam. “We are thrilled to have him at Motown. It’s his time.”
