The London born singer has really stayed true to herself with this visual. Serving us her signature TomBoy chic, Ella is seen in streetwear in the form of jerseys, oversized sets and sneakers, really giving us Aaliyah “Back and Forth” vibes.
In the song, Ella essentially compares the time a guy has to win her over that of a basketball shot clock, so it’s only right that there are various scenes on a basketball court.
You will also see Mai making examples of these different guys with these shot clock trials, as they all try to keep her attention within 24 seconds.
The song samples a number of hit records such as Drake’s “Legend” which samples Ginuwine’s 90’s hit “So Anxious” giving us that smooth old school R&B sound that Ella is so heavily influenced by.
Ella Mai has stayed humble throughout her rise to fame. She was initially found on Instagram by DJ Mustard after posting covers to songs of her favorite artists on the app and YouTube. She has since received much praise from her fans to artists she once admired on her effort to bring back the true R&B sound.
You can catch Ella Mai in a city near you as she is currently on the road for The Debut Tour which of course kicked off in the UK on January 8th. The North American leg of the tour begins February 12th in Vancouver.
