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 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.
