Boo’d Up has blossomed and became everyone’s favorite song in a matter of weeks. From remixes to being played on the radio in every city, Ella Mai is more than on. But, many aren’t aware that Ella Mai has been on her musical journey for quite some time, starting on instagram.
The London native began singing covers on Instagram, and covered current songs, old songs and songs she loved. She caught the attention of DJ Mustard and he signed her to his label, 10 Summers. She released her first EP, Time and the rest is history. The EP was the first of her trilogy series. Time featured hit song “She Don’t” which had the hook king on it, Ty Dolla $ign. Time was followed by one of my favorites, CHANGE, which is filled with all bops including, 10,000 Hours.
I seen Ella Mai shortly after this project was released as she was a supportive f act for Kehlani during her SweetSexySavage tour stop in Philadelphia. Her voice was so memorizing but, I could tell everyone wasn’t hip to her greatness. Some people were singing along but, not like I thought they would! I thought everyone was aware of Ella Mai.
She then released READY, months after CHANGE was released and hit song “Boo’d Up” was featured on this one. I’m so glad that people are on Ella Mai, she’s an amazing artist and deserves recognition! Ella has been on my top list for a while, once I heard ‘She Don’t’ I was hooked, she kept dropping nothing but fire! She’s also going on tour in August and making a stop in Philadelphia and Brooklyn, New York!
Below are some of my favorite Ella Mai songs and I’m certain it will be yours too!
