The last we heard from London artist Ella Mai, was last February when she released her EP Ready. Now she gifts fans with a sultry ballad Naked, in celebration of her birthday two days ago.
Mai is boldly honest in the DJ Mustard-produced track, but only for a lover who won’t judge. Comfortable in her own skin, she is unafraid to ask for what she wants in somebody and ultimately wants someone who is just as secure and accepting.
The laid-back R&B songstress shared: “Excited to give my fans some new music for my birthday! In life there are a lot of factors that make you believe you should change yourself in order to be accepted but I just wanted to say that you don’t have to. Can’t wait to perform this record live on tour!”
A rather heartfelt and vulnerable single, it’s unclear whether the record is a lead up to any upcoming projects or just something for the fans either way we are excited for what’s to come for this talented artist.
