Ella Mai’s ‘Boo’d Up’ Has Too Many Remixes

Ella Mai released a sensation of a hit that has been belted just about everywhere this summer.

The song, “Boo’d Up” is quite possibly the biggest hit all summer. Drake creeped in a close second with a new song off his album titled “In My Feelings.” Regardless of Drake, Ella Mai is still holding her own and leads with Billboard’s No.1 song on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Chart.

With such buzz around “Boo’d Up,” artists have, of course, tried to draw the attention to themselves by adding their own personal verses and remixing the lovely 23-year-old British songwriter. Although, it is pretty safe to say the consensus is that each remix was unwarranted by fans of the original. Take to Twitter more specifically to see just how unnecessary each remix has been; nonetheless here are some of the remixes that may be interesting.

Between Plies, Saweetie, Fetty Wap, T-Pain, Fabolous, and Nicki Minaj and Quavo, each collaboration was at best decent or an outcry for attention.

For starters, most probably do not know that dormant New Jersey artist Fetty Wap took a stab at the summer anthem. The overly autotuned “Zoo Mix” has a chorus nothing short of hard to listen to and is completely incomparable to the king of autotune, T-Pain.

Speaking of T-Pain, he has been coming out of retirement to reinstate his presence as one of the most influential people in Hip-Hop and R&B as of late. The master of the autotune sound certainly stepped up
with this short two-minute remix and is most definitely ranked as the best to take a jab at Ella Mai’s beloved song.

Nicki Minaj, who is currently in a bit of a power struggle in regards to being the leading woman in rap (not that there has to be one) has linked up with an artist she has openly stated her affection for, Quavo.

The remix not welcomed by many is a sad attempt. The two seem to project too hard of a vibe for such a sensual hit. 

Although their remix did come in second place, following T-Pain, on Karen Civil’s Twitter Poll.

Fabolous has made the latest attempt at “Boo’d Up”. The veteran rapper has long been known for remixing R&B songs and didn’t disappoint by adding a short beginning verse. The beat fitting for Fab who raps smooth and luxuriously with lines like:

“See I’m a hustler, only boo I wanted was a Bugatti
But if you got one ridin’ with you, better keep your boo shottie
‘Cause ain’t nothin’ out here but clout chasers and cheap heels
And they all got a dream they out chasin’ like Meek Mill” – via genius.com

Fabolous even making reference to his recent altercation with longtime girlfriend EmilyB by stating, “Why they look mad though? They get mad when you get your boo back (word)”
