Ella Mai has audiences back in their feelings with the highly anticipated release of her latest single “DFMU” (Don’t F*** Me Up). Teaming up with her longtime musical collaborator Mustard and working alongside Prince Charlez on the track, Ella speaks from the heart opening up about how it feels to fall in love and the internal battles that accompany that journey. With lyrics like “didn’t think it’d ever be so hard, crazy I’m letting down my guard,” this new single is a snapshot of Ella at her most exposed. Ella Mai is featured on the cover of New Music Daily and R&B Now on Apple Music.
Ella drives home the message of “DFMU” with a stunning, moody visual directed by Loris Russier. The 90’s-inspired flare reflects the songstress’s love and appreciation for the R&B artists of that time. Showing off a more vulnerable side we see Ella and her lover slowly drowning inside a car, an appropriate representation of how a toxic relationship can pull you down.
