Ella Mai – “Trip” [Vevo LIFT performance]
“I put my feelings on safety. So I don’t go shootin’ where your heart be. ‘Cause you take the bullet tryna save me. Then I’m left to deal with makin’ you bleed. And that’s a whole lotta love, ain’t tryna waste it.” – lyrics
‘Trip’ tells the tale of a woman who’s addicted to making good love with her significant other. But when she doesn’t get it, she overreacts or gets bent out of shape. Also, the song contains a relatable storyline, soothing soul vocals, and piano-laden instrumentation produced by Keys and DJ Mustard.

Ella Mai – “Naked” [Vevo LIFT performance]
“My resting b*tch face is mistaken for the mean girl. But what if I told you there’s nothing I want more in this world than somebody who loves me naked. Someone who never asks for love, but knows how to take it.” – lyrics
‘Naked’ tells the tale of a woman who’s looking for a guy who will love her unconditionally. Someone who will look past her flaws. Someone who will say she’s beautiful even though she doesn’t look the part. Also, the song contains a relatable storyline, wonderful soul vocals, and sexy instrumentation produced by DJ Mustard.
