R&B’s Rising Star Ella Mai Gives Her Soulful Stylings Some Soulection The U.K. Chanteuse Delights Los Angeles At Soulection Experience
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… Switching up the genre once again, Ella Mai followed Carmack on the Timeless stage. The newest R&B singer on the scene took over clubs and the radio with her hit (and Grammy Award winning) single “Boo’d Up”. Now with her debut album released, including features from Chris Brown, John Legend, and H.E.R., Ella Mai has become a staple on the charts stateside. Her debut tour has sold out every date so far and it goes to show she is in high demand.
Earlier in the day, I got to talking to two women who bought tickets and drove from several hours away just to see Ella Mai. They had no idea what or who Soulection was, nor who any other people on the lineup were. It was mind-boggling to hear about their dedication and love for her music.
Towards the end of the night, I made my way up to the front of the photo pit, only to spot their friendly faces smiling at me. They staked out the barrier all day just for this moment. The British songstress took the stage wearing an incredibly comfy looking two piece sweat suit that was made of colorfully dyed wool. She gave the crowd a sampler of her work, singing everything from newer singles like “Trip” to songs from her first two EPs like “10,000 Hours”. It was apparent that Mai was very popular amongst the Soulection crowd as the auditorium became instantly packed with patrons singing all her lyrics. Ella Mai may be a fresh face but it feels like she’s been around ages due to the dedication of her fans…”
