Ella Mai has unveiled the cover art and release date for her debut album.
Simply titled Ella Mai, the British singer-songwriter’s highly-anticipated LP is set to arrive October 12 via 10 Summers/Interscope Records. Executive produced by Mustard, the throwback R&B album features “Trip” and the 3x platinum hit “Boo’d Up,” as well as the bonus track “Naked.” It is now available for pre-order.
The fast-rising star relocated from London to L.A. in early 2016 to work with Mustard, eventually signing with his 10 Summers label. Since then, the pair has worked overtime, crafting Ella Mai’s rich, musical sound and churning out three well-received EPs: TIME, CHANGE and READY which delivered the smash, “Boo’d Up.”
Mai made history when “Boo’d Up” perched atop Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart for 14 weeks, becoming the longest running number one by a woman this decade. “Boo’d Up” is currently 3X platinum and the new single “Trip” is quickly following suit, bookending the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart at #10 and jumping nine spots to #23 on the Hot 100 this week.
Ella Mai has also been nominated for two American Music Awards: for “Favorite Female Artist Soul/R&B” and “Favorite Song Soul/R&B” for her runaway hit, “Boo’d Up.” Right on the heels of her own sold-out U.S. headlining tour, she will join Bruno Mars next month on his “24K Magic World Tour,” kicking off her run in Brooklyn, NY at the Barclays Center on October 4.
