English singer and songwriter, Ella Mai, began making waves in the states with her hit single “Boo’d Up” which actually came out early 2017. Eventually the song grabbed the attention of anybody who is anybody, making her an international superstar. It wasn’t long before she effortlessly stole our hearts again with her follow up single “Trip”. Now, she has released her self-titled debut album. The album includes features from the likes of Chris Brown, John Legend, and her fellow R&B sister H.E.R. But don’t get it twisted! Sis proved she can hold her own weight on beautiful ballads such as “Own It”, “Good Bad” and “Shot Clock”.
Ella Mai tells an honest story of the ups and downs that is love and relationships.
Through this highly anticipated album, Mai proves that she is a force to be recon with not only in R&B but in music in general. However, with the recent drought in R&B, we are most definitely thrilled to hear such raw vocals and talent that is indeed displayed on the album. Ella Mai also recently performed “Boo’d Up” at the AMA’s after being nominated twice. Mai has gained the attention and love from many celebrities in the industry.
Like it or not, it definitely appears that Ella Mai is here to stay and is carrying the whole genre of R&B on her back!
Congrats to the young and talented Ella Mai on her debut album!
