We all know the London Queen, Ella Mai, has had one of the top hit singles “Boo’d Up” that was certified platinum on the charts. She hasn’t steered us wrong because her voice is elegant. The single got its clout when everyone was doing the “Boo’d Up” challenge.
The single was off of her six-track EP Ready. It is crazy that a year later, fans reacted to the No. 1 song from the “Naked” crooner, and it became the summer anthem of the year. With the release of her self-titled debut album, she is giving us too much “sauce” with it plus more. With her smooth voice, we can tell that r&b isn’t dead yet. With her sold-out shows over the summer by having the top No. 1 single, she graces us with her amazing vocals before she released her debut album. Providing us with a 16-track album, you can tell she took her time with her craft with it to make it a nice vibe. Do you remember Anita Baker‘s “T-Shirt and Panties” track? Well, Mai’s record “Own It,” is something similar to a remake of it, but puts her London vibes to make it a success.
She got us “tripping” with many of her tracks of the album with so much emotion. It has been a turnaround in the r&b game, and I can say that Ella Mai is one of the r&b princesses in the game. It is only the beginning with such passion on what she does and I can tell by the pace that she is going, we will expect to see more of her with her longtime friend H.E.R. Ella provided us with a sensual yet seductive album that gets us women to give men a shot clock that we not here just for a season but giving you the opportunity to man up to even being “boo’d up” with our significant other. Kind of giving us high school vibes with butterflies in our stomach with our crush.
She recently announced The Debut Tour that represents her latest album. It will start next year on January 8 in Birmingham, UK and will end on March 28 in San Antonio, TX. She recently sold out most of her show dates in a matter of minutes. With her assertive but yet mystery and inner personality, watch the r&b crooner “trip” visual below.
