Ella Mai has decided she’s not playing with you folks in 2020. The singer started the year wowing us all alongside Usher on their duet “Don’t Waste My Time” and it looks like she took a few cues from him when it comes to her latest single “Not Another Long Song.” The song itself is an evolution of the “Boo’d Up” singer’s style and she further elevates that notion with the release of the single’s video.
To match the song’s slinky, more mature sound, Ella gives us a more sophisticated vision in the clip. For one, the singer is looking gorgeous with sleek black tresses and outfits that vary between silky and form-fitting. Each look shows a sexier side without veering too far from the slightly tomboy-ish looks that we’ve come to expect from the British star. In fact, one could liken the style switch-up to that of Aaliyah back in the mid-nineties. And like Aaliyah, she’s also adding dance into her repertoire, showing off a few moves with her video beau against the dimly lit backdrop of the visuals.
It all comes together quite nicely, leaving us to wonder what else Ella Mai has in store for us as she embarks on the next part of her musical journey. Though she’s made no announcements of this being more than just a single release, we have a feeling that Ella’s got more on the way. To get an inkling of what’s to come, we suggest you press play below.
