Annotationen

Boo'd Up ist stark von Newsoul-Hip-Hop-Hybriden der 90er Jahre beeinflusst, für die z.B. Mary J Blige bekannt geworden ist. Er klingt wie eine Alicia Keys Ballade für die Cloudrap-Generation (siehe Rolling Stone Artikel von Elias Leight).
Der Track war vor allem in den USA erfolgreich: #5 der Billboard Hot 100, #1 der Hot R&B Songs, #3 der Rhythmic, #4 der Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, #28 der Mainstream Top 40. Ausserdem wurde der Track in den USA mit 5-fachem Platinum ausgezeichnet.
Ella Mai gehört zu einer neuen Generation von R&B-Sängerinnen, die an den Erfolg des weiblichen R&B in den 90er Jahren anschliessen, nachdem das Genre einige Zeit lang hauptsächlich von Männern beherrscht worden ist (R. Kelly, Usher oder Justin Timberlake). Die grosse Ausnahme war natürlich Beyoncé. Anderen Frauen, die mit Ella Mai seit ein paar Jahren das Feld zurückerobern, sind beispielsweise Janelle Monáe, Tinashe, SZA oder Jazmine Sullivan.
