What do celebrities like Ella Mai and Queen Naija have in common?

They got their start on social media. If you can remember, before Ella Mai was ‘Boo’d Up’ she was cozy on her Instagram making covers to some of our favorite songs. In plenty of interviews you can hear Ella talk about how she would do those covers on IG, just to give her fans some content, and something to listen to. Although, Ella isn’t making these covers anymore, you can visit her Instagram account and scroll all the way down and check out some of those old covers.

Thankfully, the power of social media can take you to new heights. Doing those covers paid off because she now is topping the charts with her singles- ‘Boo’d Up’ and ‘Trip.’ She also just released her self-titled album ‘Ella Mai.’ The album includes features rom artist such as Chris Brown and H.E.R.
