Eagle-eyed viewers of British talent show, The X Factor, may well recognise Ella Mai, after she appeared on the show as part of a vocal trio back in 2014. The group didn’t make it far and soon disbanded, but Ella was determined to pursue her dream of a career in music and continued writing and recording her own music.

That determination paid off last year when Hip-Hop titan, DJ Mustard, signed her to his 10 Summers label, through which Ella has released three EPs, racking up millions of streams in the process.

And those streaming numbers are set to increase with the release of her gorgeous new single, Naked. Over DJ Mustard’s stripped back production, Ella opens up about her search for someone to love her, flaws and all. Despite Ella Mai’s warm, tender vocals, there is no disguising the vulnerability on show here, allowing the track to truly live up its title.
