Perhaps the greatest highlight of 2018 for Jacquees despite the never ending arrests was his interactions with Ella Mai online which went south as quickly as they started!
For starters the rapper says he has only met the RnB singer twice. He adds the rest of the conversations have been online and mostly in one way traffic DMs until she showed up in his comments after he posted the remix to her song Trip!
The singer released four projects this year including his debut album, 4275 and his third installment of the Quemix series.
He caught backlash for his remix of Ella Mai’s “Trip” which was subsequently taken down from YouTube and Soundcloud after DJ Mustard issued a cease and desist.
In a recent interview, Jacquees explained how the whole incident went down noting how he meant well and was shocked to wake up and find that his efforts had been thwarted and notes that since then he and Ella have not spoken.
The singer went on explain how he thought Ella Mai showing up on his comments was an actual permission for him to proceed with his work on her single because when he slid to her DMs they went unanswered.
Now Jacquees also added that Ella Mai thought he was trying to monetize the whole project something he was not keen on as he says he put the project in his soundcloud but his producer put it on his YouTube channel and that is when things fell off.
He continued to explain how everything went down on that situation. He revealed that his first encounter with the U.K. songstress was during Chris Brown Heartbreak On A Full Moon tour where he served as an opening act.
Ella Mai went on to praise Jacquees’ work, saying that she’s been listening to his music for 6 years.
“We was friends, we still friends, you know what I’m sayin’? I ain’t gon’ say was, because I’m a real n***a,” he said. “That’s still my dawg. And I understand she a female and I understand that she’s surrounded by a bunch of n***as.”
