Wizkid ft. Ella Mai – “Piece Of Me” Stream & Download
Ella Mai Howell was born 3 November 1994 is an English singer and songwriter. Her singing career began at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute in London in 2014, during which time she auditioned as part of a trio on the 11th season of The X Factor. In 2015, she uploaded a four-track solo EP of originals to Sound Cloud titled Troubled, and was discovered on social media by American record producer Mustard and signed with his record label, 10 Summers Records. From 2016 to 2018, she released three EPs on the label, including Time, Change, and Ready. Her self-titled debut studio album was released in October 2018 and featured the singles “Boo’d Up” and “Trip”, which were released on 20 February 2018 and 3 August 2018, respectively. In 2019, “Boo’d Up” was nominated for two Grammy Awards: Song of the Year and Best R&B Song, winning for the latter, as well as Mai herself being nominated for British Breakthrough Act at the 2019 Brit Awards. At the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, she won three awards, including the award for Top R&B Artist.
It’s been three years since we were last afforded the privilege of a WizKid album. Fans have enjoyed the singles and features in between, but a full project from the StarBoy himself has been long awaited. Whilst ‘Sounds From The Other Side’ showcased WizKid in the context of the global stage with varying genres, his newest album sees a return to home with sounds more consistent with traditional Afrobeats. Made in Lagos is one of WizKid’s most serene albums yet and a memorable comeback from one of Afrobeats’ most loved princes.
‘Piece Of Me’ is led by warm guitar riffs and is well fitted to the relaxed nature of the project whilst also offering a slight pop twang. In the repetitive chorus, Ella Mai demands her love interest “come and get a piece” and whilst it is not a personal favourite, it provides an enjoyable tune likely to be received positively in both pop and R&B spaces.
Artists can sometimes risk being swallowed by dominant features however, with pleasant additions from the likes of Damian Marley and Skepta, WizKid still holds his own and listeners are unable to forget who’s running the show in singles ‘Blessed’ and ‘Longtime’. This is reiterated in two of my personal favourites ‘Mighty Wine’ and ‘Gyrate’ where WizKid’s distinctive flow carries these euphonious melodies and showcases his evolution since entering the scene in 2011.
Award-winning Nigerian singer and songwritter, Wizkid makes a return as he drops off a new song he titles “Piece of Me” featuring English singer, Ella Mai. The track “Piece of Me” is taken off Wizkid fourth studio album “Made In Lagos”.
