‘In My Corner’ by Elhae – WATCH

By RawKeith / August 10, 2021

Rising North Dakota-born, Georgia-raised singer/songwriter Elhae returns today with an emotional visual for “In My Corner,” a standout single from his recent project Aura III. The colorful, sentimental clip underscores the romantic energy of the song, which evokes the trust and unwavering support of a loving relationship.

Laced with romantic guitar licks, as well as Elhae’s gentle vocals and soul-bearing sincerity, the song spills out like an intimate letter. “I’ll give you my name, and everything that comes with it,” he sings over supple strings and tranquil percussion. In the Damien Blue-directed visual, Elhae and his love interest go on playful dates, capturing memories in candid Polaroids and offering a glimpse at unabashed romance. It’s colorful and bright, the perfect accompaniment for the song.

“In My Corner” is Elhae’s latest video from April’s Aura III, a sleekly cinematic, unfailingly earnest project filled with mesmerizing vocals, hypnotic production, and guest appearances from Rick Ross and Masego. Showcasing his delicately powerful voice and ability to oscillate between island-inflected bops and jazz-tinged romantic overtures, the project only reaffirms his status as an artist to watch. That designation was hard-earned through years of memorable collaborations, steady releases, and meaningful fan engagement. The songs have resonated, too—the Masego-featuring “My City” has over 8.8 million streams globally, and the project as a whole has over 19.6 million.   

These recent hits only continue Elhae's impressive run. In addition to garnering glowing praise from The Fader, Billboard, Vibe, The Source, and more, Elhae was part of Sprite’s P.O.U.R. (Purveyors of Urban Reality) program. His 2016 LP All Have Fallen produced hits like "Doesn't Matter" (feat. Kehlani) and"Needs," which has over 21 million Spotify streams. The Aura II EP (2017) boasted the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted "Bang Your Line," which adds to its 25 million Spotify streams every day. And outside his solo work, Elhae has collaborated with stars like Lecrae and Eric Bellinger. Following a 2018 Coachella performance, he released his conceptual Trouble in Paradise LP (2019). After the release of Aura III, and the video for “In My Corner,” Elhae appears destined to climb to even higher peaks and add to this sizable list of accolades.
