New Song: Ella Mai & Chris Brown – ‘Whatchamacallit’

Published: Thursday 4th Oct 2018 by Sam

With ‘Boo’d Up’ still blazing the charts and follow-up ‘Trip’ strutting to similar success, the setup for Ella Mai‘s self-titled album is looking all sorts of lush.

But, as the set’s October 12th release draws near, the London bred star isn’t resting on her laurels.

Fresh from unlocking the LP’s tracklist, she has premiered one of its most anticipated tracks – Chris Brown collaboration ‘Whatchamacallit.’

Speaking on working with C. Breezy, Mai said:

 “Vocally, he’s amazing. If he didn’t come out the way he did and make the music that he did, I think I would be a completely different artist. He’s influenced an entire generation.”

Take a listen below…


The production marries Mai’s Mustard flavored R&B with Brown’s uptempo lean. Indeed, this easily sounds like a fusion of ‘Boo’d Up’ meets ‘Loyal’ and it tastes superb.

Lyrically, it makes for an engaging listen too.

Easily a future single.

    Well that shows why she’s a basic, average vocalist. Chris brown is her inspiration ????

    • MariahsHoney October 4, 2018

      Chris Brown is more iconic than any of your fave male singers ”who debuted the same time or after”. He has definitely inspired lots of singers, he was and still is a triple threat.
      I can name a whole lot of male singers who are 100% worse who are currently leading the charts ?, but I just want y’all to support #WithYou by Mariah Carey and cherish The Queen of Music ??

      • Whoops ???‍♀️?? October 4, 2018

        Chris isn’t a threat to anybody these days. He had potential but he squandered it. His vocals are mediocre. And his lyrics are redundant and repetitive. And honestly, the singers he’s inspired aren’t fabulous either. It’s not like he’s inspired AMAZING music and singers. Their music isn’t great either. The ability to inspire doesn’t make you the best. And inspiration isn’t always positive. You can inspire mediocrity. Just look at the charts.

        He still makes HITS and have lots of them, there is no denying that he is a major force in the culture, his songs are known by everyone.
        The guy can sing but he needs to quit with anything that affects his voice “you name it”.
        And he could really really sing when he came out.
        I along with millions of people still enjoy his music, you can have your baseless opinion but facts are Chris Brown is one of the greatest artists/performers.
        The guy writes, sings, dances,produces, acting etc “I wish he went back to the acting”.
        Ugh I need a bop from him and Mariah. #ForTheCulture

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 4, 2018

        @mariah Bruno Mars shíts in Chris in every single way except dancing. And even Bruno Mars can slay choreography. Can Chris slay a live vocal? NEVER. Next. And we love Mariah but With You is nothing more than “angels cry” 2018 with an “I stay in love with you video”… it’s boring and redundant and she’s done it before a few times. Here’s hoping her album songs and vocals are much better cause this is the same ol same

      • Theman October 4, 2018

        ‘With You’ does not sound like ‘Angels Cry’ it’s a good song. But Chris is just a great dancer/entertainer. Mariah sounds very good on this record. It’s just that people always want more when it comes to singing from her.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 4, 2018

        @Theman “with you” sounds very much like “angels cry”… it’s not the exact same but it is the same formula. Same set up.. same vibe. Not enough differentiation between them and the vocals are very similar ESPECIALLY angels cry. I love Mariah but this song is super mediocre and listenable.

    • DanYiel Iman October 4, 2018

      And he’s still a billboard chart topping artist, so obviously his fans don’t mind at all!!??

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 4, 2018

        @Danyiel if you’re into lipsynching to a catalogue of songs that sound the same, more power to you. I’m not a fan of chipmunk lipped vocals ??????

        Since I started with my online business, I earn $80 every 60minutes. It sounds unbelievable but you won’t forgive yourself if you don’t check it out. Learn more about it here…….. w­w­w.W­i­c­3­.­c­om

    • Wordonthestreet October 5, 2018

      She is a HORRIBLE singer LIve! She needs to head right back to England because girl your basic 90s beats and mediocre voice WILL not last at all! Her voice has no texture and is just MEH! No thanks Ms ELLA

  3. Achooo! October 4, 2018

    I prefer Pussycat Dolls of the same name. I look at Billboard 100 and I can’t believe so much mediocrity flooding the market. Standards so low

    • Drinkmybussyjuice October 4, 2018

      Completely different songs.

      Anywho. All her sounds sound the same. Her voice is very… one note.

      • i hate whytte and blacck bitchheszz both not sht October 4, 2018

        b.itch cant sing

    • Haterz Gon’ Hate October 4, 2018

      Agreed – At least PCD put some energy, characters and charisma into their song of the same title – this is just clothes ironing music.

      People who buy this…. well….. I cannot today. This current musical phase mediocrity needs to end.

      • Cbeylive October 4, 2018

        Reminds me of Adele and Taylor doing the same s*** over and over

  4. i hate whytte and blacck bitchheszz both not sht October 4, 2018

    b.itch please

  5. DanYiel Iman October 4, 2018

    I like this song ?

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 4, 2018

      It’s a no from me. Sounds like all the rest of hers and Chris basic music. I’ll pass

  6. Haterz Gon’ Hate October 4, 2018

    So uninspired and generic ? even HE had better songs than this in his discography. And for all those criticising the new Mariah single thank god Mustard did not give Mariah this track BECAUSE THIS IS NOT IT.

    • Sweetnothings78 October 4, 2018

      Neither is hers though!

  7. Ughhh October 4, 2018

    The lyrics make this a no for me.

  8. Olusheyi October 4, 2018

    This is really good. Definitely going to buy the album next week
