(AllHipHop Rumors) Ella Mai is often credited for bringing R&B back! She's got a number of hits, she's in the cool club and several other singer came to prominence after she dropped. Now, "Boo'd Up" isn't the final word in Rhythm & Blues but she certainly helped. Anyway, the state of R&B is improving and there is no denying that. That fact did NOT help when a fan jumped in her Twitter feed with a wave of shade!
That was harsh! I know the girl is lighter-skinned with curly hair, but I would not call her racial ambiguous! She is Black! And yes, people that have lighter skin tend to have some privilege darker people don't. BUT, that does not mean that the girl is not talented. R&B is in a decent space even though it is definitely not producing the quality of work that we saw with Aretha Franklin, Stephanie Mills or even Mary J. Blige or Faith in the 90's. There's NOTHING on par today, by H.E.R. has my attention!
