Video: Ella Mai – Shot Clock
Last year, Ella Mai became one of the most in-demand R&B singers in the world. In her debut campaign, the star’s self-titled album ran up the numbers after “Boo’d Up” became one of the most popular songs of the entire year. When the controversy surrounding Jacquees’ version of “Trip” started to buzz, people became even more interested in whatever Ella Mai had going on. The young singer is still striving from her debut album and she continues to deliver new content from it, introducing the visuals to “Shot Clock” today.
The video is sports-driven, which makes total sense given the name of the track. Ella speaks on a long-term relationship she’s in, pressuring her boyfriend to take them to the next level. In fact, she gives him an ultimatum. Make a move before the shot clock runs down or we’re through. Directed by Collin Tilley, we’ve got imagery of the singer on the court and the bleachers as she sings about generally being impatient at this point.
Ella Mai quickly rose to fame and she’s now up for a Grammy award. 2019 is looking like another year that she can take over if she wants to. Take a look at the video above and let us know what you think.
