Ella Mai and Chris Brown have released their long expected duet, “Whatchamacallit”.
Mai has admitted growing up a Chris Brown fan so their collaboration is a milestone for her. In an interview, she said he was a major influence on her career.
“Vocally, he’s amazing,” she said. “If he didn’t come out the way he did and make the music that he did, I think I would be a completely different artist. He’s influenced an entire generation.”
Ella’s self-titled debut arrives Oct. 12. In addition to Brown, the album features vocals from John Legend and H.E.R.
