The British singer returns with a piano-driven ballad.
After a two-year hiatus and a few hit songs, Ella Mai has finally released new music. The “Boo’d Up” star shows a more vulnerable side on her new single “DFMU” (“Don’t F*ck Me Up”), and fans are already loving it.
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Mai opened up about “DFMU”, and what the record means to her. “So it was almost a therapy session when I was in the session. But I think that’s the best way. All the people that I grew up listening to are always very, very honest. And I’ve always just appreciated honesty,” she said. “I think it’s the best way I think that people can relate to you also so…I was having a very honest conversation with Prince Charlez who I wrote the song with about what I was going through at that point. And it just was basically a conversation, and it just came together that way.”
The Grammy-winning artist has been in the studio working on the follow-up to her self-titled 2018 project. According to the singer, her sophomore album will be different. “I’m growing up, I’m maturing, I’m turning into a new woman.”
