Meet Ella Mai.
Ella Mai is an upcoming R&B singer from London, England. At the age of 12, she moved to New York and later debuting on the X Factor (11th Season) with her singing group "Arize". After being eliminated in the initial auditions, she continued to grind towards her dream and later becoming manifesting it. After uploading Instagram videos to the internet of her singing covers to popular songs, she was discovered by DJ Mustard and signed to his 10 Summers record label. DJ Mustard is mainly known to be affiliated with YG, Ty Dolla $ign, and Big Sean as of late. Since her signing and enhancement as an artist, she released three projects since 2016: Time, Change, & Ready. On these projects she displayed her distinct voice all while staying true to her London roots. The main content on these projects stem from loving relationships, and the highs and lows that come with them. Through effortless vocal ability and a banging switch in melody, Ella Mai may be stapling her name in the game for at least the next couple of years. Not even to mention that most of her music is being produced by one of the best producers in the game: "Mustard on the Beat!" A few of my favorites from her current discography are "Boo'd Up", "Down", & "Dont Want You". Listen to some of these bangers below.
