The summer season is just around the corner and 2018 ESSENCE Festival performer Ella Mai has the perfect slow jam to get you in the mood for all things warm weather, cookouts and road trips with your squad.
The latest single from her 2017 EP, Ready, ‘Boo’d Up’ takes listeners through the all-consuming feeling of falling in love. Ella’s laid-back vocals glide with ease over a mid-tempo track, as the song’s lyrics provide a simplistic, yet detailed play-by-play of all the feelings associated with beginning a journey with a new love.
In the visual for the single, Ella and her bearded bae are all smiles as they’re seen on what looks like a first date at a local fair. The visual also includes a cameo from Grammy-nominated crooner, Khalid and rising Hip Hop artist, Kamiayah.
Check out the video for “Boo’d Up” in full above and then be sure to grab your tickets to see Ella Mai, along with over 40 more of the biggest names in music, at the 2018 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans this July.
See you in NOLA!
