Ella Mai is well on her way to R&B mainstay status. The UK songbird has been steadily roping in new fans (like Chris Brown) with her single, “Boo’d Up,” which made a name for itself on the Billboard Hot 100. She extended the reach and grip of the song by pairing it with a visual that encourages us to let our inner child come out to play from time to time.
On the song, Ella sings about the familiar butterflies-in-stomach that come from boo-loving with a special someone. There is definitely an on-camera bae to communicate that narrative and spend that quality time with her at a carnival, complete with go-karts, mini-golf, games, tubing and more. However, the video’s most endearing moments come from its cameos. In the Nick Walker-directed visual, Ella opted to extend the date night invite to her friends. Kamaiyah and Khalid get in on the go-kart and tubing fun.
As the saying goes: the more the merrier. Get some inspiration for your next outing by watching the 10 Summers signee’s video below.
