It’s been awhile since we received new music from R&B singer, Ella Mai. Her self-titled debut album was a phenomenal album in 2018 and fans were left wanting more. For her sophomore effort, she took her time with this and wanted to ensure fans received quality music. Just as the title suggests, Heart on my Sleeve is a great summation of the album.
From the first few singles we received within the last year, ‘Not Another Love Song’, ‘DFMU’ and her latest, ‘Leave You Alone’, Ella Mai has not skipped a beat. Between her smooth vocals along the complimentary production throughout the album, Ella Mai continues to effortlessly discuss topics of heartbreak, relationships and more. Latto, Roddy Rich and Lucky are the only artists to be featured on the album. Also, Kirk Franklin and Mary J. Blige provide narrations throughout the album to advance the story, a staple that many fans have grown to love from Ella Mai’s projects.
This summer R&B continues to set this summer ablaze in the midst of all the Hip Hop that’s been coming out as of late. Ella Mai’s Heart on my Sleeve is a great addition to music lover’s playlist. You can steam on all music streaming services.
