This is my second feature of Los Angeles based singer Ella Mai and the heat just continues. She’s recently released some of the best R&B I’ve heard in a long time. In my opinion this is how you release songs with a well-known producer like DJ Mustard without sounding trendy or like you’re trying to hard. I’m actually pleasantly surprised that DJ Mustard has this much depth musically, but clearly has an ear to have discovered this young lady on Instagram.
She’s only 21 so I can’t fault her for wanting hard hitting beats but I can tell behind those beats lies a young singer that’s comfortable doing trap soul or singing ballads. Some of my favorites from the EP are Boo’d Up, Lay Up, Breakfast In Bed and Anymore. Overall this is a solid offering for an artist that’s just getting started and I await what she has in store down the road. Check the links below to preview some of my favs.
