Ella Mai Criticism Sparks Conversation On Twitter

Ella Mai‘s talent is being defended by fans after a viral tweeter questioned her validity.

The Grammy winner tweeted her elation for the state of R&B and it left some rhythm and blues purists confused. Replies to the tweet gather a handful of “confused” memes. One tweeter, @raerenyse when IN on Ella, calling her vocals “poor” and insinuating her looks got her career moving. She wrote:

nah it sucks and it’s in large part due to artists like yourself. no real musical acumen, no understanding of the history of the genre you’re a part of, just a racially ambiguous pretty face with poor vocal technique and a machine behind you.

Yikes! Do YOU think Ella Mai’s light skin and curly hair have a lot to do with her success? Fans are arguing about it now, hit the flip to read what they’re saying.
