Ella Mai took R&B by storm this year with her #1 hit song “BOO’D UP”. It was the most popular, and most listened to song of 2018. And people have been wondering – who is the man in Ella Mai’s life that got her “in her feelings” for that song?
Some people are speculating that the man in the video – who had GREAT chemistry with Ella Mai – could have been her BOO. But MTO News did some digging, and we found out that the two are NOT dating.
MTO News obtained an image of the man that Ella Mai is dating. And they make a cute couple. They’re both good looking, and have great skin.
But there’s something about Ella’s BOO that got us SUSPICIOUS. Ella, girl be careful . . .
In multiple interviews, Ella Mai names Lauryn Hill, Chris Brown, Brandy, Destiny’s Child, Alicia Keys, and Mariah Carey as her biggest influences. Vibe said her “perception of the powerful emotion is kindred to R&B heartthrobs of the ‘90s, who flooded the radio airwaves with soulful ballads, baby-making tunes, and heart-wrenching break-up anthems.” Rolling Stone described her sound as “a British émigré full of self-confidence and an affinity for classic Nineties R&B.
