Ella Mai’s time has come. Fresh off her performance at the American Music Awards (where she was nominated for a brace of honors), the English singer-songwriter has dropped her self-titled debut album.
The 16-track set runs to almost an hour and features her breakthrough “Boo’d Up,” which just broke the record for the most weeks at No. 1 of any song by a woman on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart when it logged a 16th week in the top slot.
Mai is signed to Interscope through her mentor and go-to producer DJ Mustard. She’s expected to go far. Stream Ella Mai in full below.
