Ella Mai is back for another round.
The Grammy-winning singer has announced the first single from her long-awaited sophomore album. “DFMU” is set to arrive at streaming services this Friday, Jan. 28, she announced on Twitter.
“DFMU. 1/28. the sophomore era has arrived,” she tweeted.
This marks the first music from the “Boo’d Up” hitmaker since “Not Another Love Song,” which was released in October 2020 and was certified gold.
She has been in the studio working on the follow-up to her self-titled 2018 debut, which will showcase her evolution. “Everything on my debut album was pretty much about love…I just turned 25, I’m growing up, I’m maturing, I’m turning into a new woman,” she told Billboard in a 2019 interview. “Just the new chapter and everything that I’ve been experiencing in this last year, it’s been crazy.”
While she readies her next hit, her 2018 smash “Boo’d Up” has been certified 7x platinum by the RIAA, while “Trip” is now 5x platinum.
