Ella Mai is an NYC-raised singer-songwriter from London, England. Not too long ago, she released a music video for “Shot Clock”, a contemporary R&B tune from her self-titled debut studio album.

Ella Mai – “Shot Clock”

“24 seconds, yeah, you better not stop. You got 24 seconds, can you beat the shot clock? What you waitin’ on, lil’ daddy? I ain’t got that much time. You seem anxious, you seem adamant but you ain’t pressed my line.” – lyrics

‘Shot Clock’ tells the tale of a woman who’s been dating a guy for five-long-years. Apparently, she feels he’s playing games about committing to their relationship. Therefore, she gives him 24-seconds to make a decision or miss his opportunity. Also, if the shot clock winds down to zero, there are a 100 different things she will be doing instead of wasting her valuable time entertaining him.

‘Shot Clock’ contains a relatable storyline and sweet soul vocals. Also, the song possesses slow-burning instrumentation produced by DJ Mustard.
