Ella Mai recently delivered her debut, self-titled album, but of course there was controversy attached to it. Jacquees released his cover of Mai’s “Trip” and got a lot of positive reviews. Many people claiming that his version was better than the original. The track was subsequently wiped from the Internet and things got ugly from there.
At the 8:20 point of the interview, she clarified, “I don’t play any role in it, to be honest. I feel like my label made a statement, and there’s not really much else to say about it to be honest. People are gonna take it how they want.” She does say, however, that she cares about the situation only because she doesn’t want anyone assuming it was all her doing. “People don’t actually know the real ins and outs of the industry,” she added.
She acknowledged that she got her start in the game by doing covers and reassured that she doesn’t mind when people remix or cover her song. “No, I don’t mind at all,” Man responded when asked how she felt about people making their own renditions to her work.
Following the aftermath of Jacquees’ remix of “Trip,” it was believed that Ella Mai had blocked him on Instagram. “I never even followed him,” she explained. Well that settles that.
During the interview, she also spoke about her rumored sex tape, telling Ebro, “You can’t believe everything you read on the internet.”
