Are you one of the millions of people entranced by Ella Mai‘s hit single “Boo’d Up“? Well — first — I hope you’ve dived into her entire catalog. Second: the star singer is ready to prove that lightning strikes twice with her new single “Trip,” another vibe with DJ Mustard.
Talking to Billboard, Mustard explained the song’s creation:
“Trip’ was one of the songs we did in the studio later down the line… I drew the chords in Fruity Loops. I can draw the chords but I’m not that good, I’m not Beethoven. I played the chords for her and I called Quinton from her band to play them. So, while she’s writing, I started doing the drums and by the time the session was over, we had the full song. [Ella] knocked that shit out, and it was crazy.
We did three more days of those type of sessions. That’s one thing I told her — I wanted to start from scratch. I don’t want to bring anything in from before. I wanted to really create what we want to hear. We picked the best songs of what she did before to finish the album. We went in and made six or seven more songs and that was one of them. Whoever I played that for when they walked in was like, ‘Wow.’ It’s a good song.”
