The track appears on Ella’s newly released album, “Heart on my Sleeve.”
Ella Mai and Ricch collide on “How,” and ahead of its release, she spoke with Nadeska for R&B Now Radio on Apple Music about uniting with the Los Angeles hitmaker.
“Roddy [is] someone that is always at the same studio as me because of Mustard, but Roddy is also one of my favorite rappers,” said Mai. “So, I said to Mustard, I was like, ‘If there’s one rapper I do want on this album…’ And I think it’s a collab that people have been waiting for because Mustard and I work so closely together and so do Roddy and Mustard. I was like, ‘Yeah, we need to give them a Mustard-produced, Ella Mai and Roddy… song.’ Yeah, it was time.”
Stream “How” and let us know what you think.
How do you switch up on a n*gga?
I thought you would never leave
I know you hear my voice everywhere you be
A cold case, I had to give lil’ shawty back to the streets
Had to slide out to Maui, I’ll be back in two weeks
