Another Smash? Ella Mai Unveils The Video For “Shot Clock”
Ella Mai was arguably the breakout star of 2018 thanks to the staggering success of “Boo’d Up.” The Brit’s major label debut single climbed all the way to number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified four-times platinum. (The Mustard-produced slow jam also honored with Grammy nominations for Song Of The Year and Best R&B Song). Impressively, she followed it up with another smash. “Trip” still reigns supreme on urban radio and stalled just outside the top 10 at number 11.
The 24-year-old is hoping to land her third smash hit in a row with “Shot Clock,” the third single from her self-titled debut LP. And it’s an absolute no-brainer. Another Mustard production (Drake and Timbaland also have songwriting credits), this sleek bop finds Ella laying down the law to time-wasters. The video, which was directed by Colin Tilley, arrived this morning and it is suitably nonplussed and full of sporting references. Fall in love with the rising star’s latest anthem up top.
