Ella Mai announces her debut album’s release date
British singer-songwriter, Ella Mai’s awe-inspiring journey to the top of the music charts is sure to reach new heights this fall with the release of her highly anticipated, debut. Executive produced by Mustard, the throwback R&B album, simply titled Ella Mai, is due Friday, October 12th.
She relocated from London to L.A. in early 2016 to work with Mustard, eventually signing with his 10 Summers label. Since then, they’ve 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.”
Ella Mai made history when “Boo’d Up” stayed at the top of 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.
She’s 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 4th.
Ella Mai will drop worldwide Friday, October 12th, on 10 Summers/Interscope Records.
