New Music Friday brought with it a nice surprise from rising singer/songwriter Ella Mai, who dropped the third EP in her trilogy, titled READY.
After releasing her two impressive projects in 2016, the TIME and CHANGE EPs, the 10 Summers Records songstress continues to showcase her alluring vocals and writing talents over production by DJ Mustard.
Offering a blend of ’90s R&B influences mixed with Cali bounce, the project boasts some of Mai’s best material yet for sure, with cohesive transitions between each song. Opening with the sultry “Boo’ed Up,” Ella gets deep in her feelings over a new brand new love, and continues to show what she can bring to a relationship on “Breakfast In Bed.”
Next she kicks up the tempo on the feel-good RnBass of “Nobody Else” and trap bounce of “My Way,” where Ella lets her potential lover know that she won’t fall for any bull-ish.
Ella Mai is currently a supporting act on Kehlani’s “SweetSexySavage World Tour,” which kicked off Feb. 21 in Montreal. In April, the trek returns to North America, before coming to an end June 18 in Los Angeles.
