Ella Mai Taps Chris Brown, John Legend, & H.e.r. For Debut Album
All eyes are on Ella Mai as she prepares to release her self-titled debut album. Ahead of the Oct. 12 release, the British singer-songwriter has revealed the tracklisting.
Executive produced by DJ Mustard, the 15 tracks include the 3x platinum hit “Boo’d Up” and follow-up “Trip,” along with three guest appearances from Chris Brown (“Whatchamacallit”), John Legend (“Everything”), and H.E.R. (“Gut Feeling”).
The throwback project serves as a testimony that R&B is still alive. “R&B is not dead. We can make it mainStream again. Clearly, people love it,” Ella told Rolling Stone.
Prior to her debut, Ella released three EPs: Time, Change, and Ready, which spawned the top 10 smash “Boo’d Up.”
Fresh off her two American Music Awards nominations, Ella will join Bruno Mars on select dates of his “24K Magic World Tour,” starting Oct. 4 in Brooklyn.
