Ella Mai is having a damn good year, her smash single “Boo’d” did superior numbers setting things up perfectly for her debut album and upcoming tour. BUT, now there is a bit of drama revolving a remixed version of her song “Trip” by Cash Money’s R&B version of Lil’Wayne *coughs* Jacquees that has Twitter buzzing.
The crooner added his own spin to the remorseful track, and it really caught on with fans and was gaining attention. That wasn’t flying with Ella Mai’s label, allegedly, and they forced him to take down his version of the record from all formats and understandably so. The song is Mai’s lead single, and they want to make sure their artist is getting the traction she deserves for her record.
Twitter wasn’t feeling the unfortunate move and let their frustration be known through their smartphones. The fallout over the cover even had T-Pain chiming in on the situation. There are some who are defending Ella Mai and her label’s actions pointing out that the singer took his “Que mix” a bit too far when he made a video to go along with the song and allegedly tried to make some money, he, of course, denies that.
Whatever the case this really shouldn’t be that hard of a situation to fix, can’t the two singers get it together and make an official remix? The fans clearly want it, until that happens you can get a few laughs at the reactions to this R&B kerfuffle below.

Ella Mai should've deleted her version tbh. Jacquees murdered this https://t.co/ETL76fRzaZ— 📍 (@OMusing) September 26, 2018
if ella mai really sued jacquees because of his remix she definitely lost a fan, that’s lame af because i bump both versions faithfully.— erin (@errrriinnnn) September 26, 2018
Ella Mai was happy with Jacquees’ remix until she saw it was becoming a threat. Perfect example of people wanting to see you good but not better than them🤷🏾♂️— Luchy (@Luch1MA) September 26, 2018
I understand the reasoning behind her record label suing Jacquees. But let’s be all the way real, they should’ve put that man on the official remix. His track already did fucking numbers through the media, shit would’ve been a big ass win for the both of them.— 333 (@ayytashh) September 26, 2018
Jacquees “trip” remix is so much better than the original one and they made him take it down bc it was more poppin and got more views Smh I’m sickkkkkk— j. (@mynamesjannica) September 26, 2018
I don’t blame Ella Mai’s people for getting that Jacquees track removed. Son put out visuals for the track & everything. Tried to get a quick bag. Damn that— B 🇬🇾 (@Brannin) September 26, 2018
Ella Mai could’ve easily made an OFFICIAL remix WITH Jacquees instead of being a hating ass bitch— THE DON🖤 (@playaassdaj) September 26, 2018
💯 emoji twitter is mad because Ella Mai’s people removed Jacquees’ remix of Trip off SoundCloud and Youtube. He didn’t just post a remix, he shot a whole video lol you can’t treat someone else’s single like it’s yours— kae (@sportyidk) September 26, 2018

Everybody know that Jacquees is an artist who do covers all the time. That man wasn’t doing nothing but showing love to Ella mai and her song. For y’all to act like he deserve to get sued is crazy.— 💙 (@ZMthebrand) September 26, 2018
