10 SUMMERS PRESENTS: THE DEBUT TOUR WITH ELLA MAI
Rapidly rising R&B starlet announces The Debut Tour in support of her self-titled debut album, which dropped on Friday, October 12th to critical acclaim.
Executive produced by Mustard for 10 Summers/Interscope Records, Ella Mai had a great first week landing at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart with over 69K in equivalent album units. The accomplishment marks the largest first week for a female debut R&B artist in more than four years. The stunning debut features special guest turns from EGOT-winner John Legend on “Everything,” R&B vocalist H.E.R. on “Gut Feeling,” and R&B bad boy Chris Brown on the upbeat fan favorite, “Whatchamacallit.”
Ella Mai’s success story did not happen overnight. It is a testament to the years of training and hard work put in since she was a little girl belting out show tunes in elementary school plays back in England. “I started in musical theater when I was young,” she says. “So we incorporated singing early.”
Fast-forward to 2018. It’s been a phenomenal year for the 23-year-old singer-songwriter. Her breakthrough single “Boo’d Up” went quadruple-platinum and recently made history as the longest running #1 by a woman on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. The follow up “Trip” broke into the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 and is certified gold. Both songs are included on the new album.
