Elli Ingram – “Canna Butter Kisses” | New Music

Elli Ingram: Canna Butter Kisses

Brighton-born singer Elli Ingram puts a soulful, jazzy twist on Chance The Rapper‘s “Cocoa Butter Kisses.”

The emerging UK talent cites Lauryn Hill, Billie Holiday, D’Angelo and Amy Winehouse as influences; the latter of whom no doubt inspired Elli’s enthusiasm for merging Hip Hop with Jazz [“They’re my two favourite things. When they’re put together it’s like magic,” says Ingram], illustrated smoothly by her sassy cover of the Chicago rapper’s popular Acip Rap mixtape cut.

Produced by Felix Joseph with backing vocals provided by Will Heard and Vicktor Taiwo, listen to “Canna Butter Kisses” below and take a listen to Elli’s debut EP, Sober, if you haven’t yet done so – which also features an atmospheric cover of Kendrick Lamar‘s “Poetic Justice.”
