Straight-up: why y’all shitheads sleeping on Ella Mai? We’ve been championing her from literally day one, and everything thing she produces blows all the competition out of the water. There is no one doing R&B in the UK the way this London girl does, and she’s easily our closest rival to Tinashe. Her Time EP will back us up on that – several DJ Mustard cuts give Mai the perfect backbone to dominate with her charismatic vocals, whether on the fiery One Day or the spoken-word coda for Switch Sider. Simply put: this girl is a star.
