Ella Mai‘s self-titled debut (Ella Mai Album) arrives today, and we’re loving all the songs in it!
Executive produced by Mustard, the 16 tracks include duets with Chris Brown (“Whatchamacallit”), John Legend (“Everything”), and H.E.R. (“Gut Feeling”), plus the gold-certified single “Trip” and 3x platinum hit “Boo’d Up.” The album also features the previously-released bonus track “Naked” and vulnerable “Easy,” which Ella describes as “nothing like I’ve put out before.”
“R&B is not dead. We can make it mainstream again. Clearly, people love it,” Ella told Rolling Stone.
The British singer-songwriter previously released three EPs: Time, Change, and Ready, which spawned “Boo’d Up.” The latter topped Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart for 14 weeks, becoming the longest-running No. 1 by a woman this decade.
You can catch Ella live on select dates of Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic World Tour,” which runs through November.
