Ella Mai Talks ‘Not Another Love Song’ and Taking Chances on Her Upcoming Album

Published: Sunday 11th Oct 2020 by Ryan

Ella Mai isn’t holding back anymore.

The singer sat down with Billboard and talked about the creation of her current single, ‘Not Another Love Song,’ and the risks that she is taking with her upcoming sophomore album.

Full story below…

On the creation of ‘Not Another Love song,’ she said:

“I did a session with Boi-1da and Jahaan [Sweet] and Varren — who I work with — and we actually made a whole different song in the session that we did. This was the first time I was working with Boi-1da and he was playing me the other stuff after we finished that and I was like, ‘Please leave me a pack.’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, I got you.’ So he left me like 15 different beats. I left it alone and went away for like a month, came back and I thought, ‘I haven’t looked at this Bo1ida pack. Let me go through it.’ I went through it and came ‘Not Another Love Song.'”

As for what risks she is taking with her new album, she said:

“I think these sessions that I’ve been doing for the sophomore album are a lot more figured out. When I was recording the debut, I was a lot younger, and I was trying to figure out what I wanted to sound like, figure out what I wanted to say — and as much as I love my debut album, I was in a very much different space career-wise and as a person. I was 21, 22.

I’m 25 now. Going into this sophomore album, I’m a lot more confident I think as an artist. I know what I want to say and what I want to sound like. Just in terms of that, it’s been a different process in general, because it’s been fun.”

‘Not Another Love Song’ is the first single from Mai’s sophomore album. The project has yet to receive a release date.

    Not feeling this that much. It’s an album filler at best. Her first album was amazing. Hope she can come with something as string as booed up or trip
