Ella Mai still seems to feel some sort of way about Jacquees’ cover of “Trip.” Last year, the Cash Money crooner released a remix to Ella Mai’s song as part of his “Quemix” series. The song ended up gaining a serious amount of traction online with a few people suggesting his version was better than the original. The song was later scrubbed from the web after DJ Mustard sent a cease and desist letter to Jacquees, ordering him to take it down. Unfortunately, Jacquees version of the song still seems to rub Ella Mai the wrong way.
“i’d be so embarrassed if someone brung me on stage and the only thing i could sing was someone elses song because nobody knew my actual music. poor thing,” Ella Mai wrote on Twitter earlier today after footage of Jacquees performing “Trip” during Tory Lanez set in London. Many wondered who she was speaking about but both Jacquees and his girlfriend, Dreezy, picked up on the subs pretty quickly.
“1st of all he hate performing that song. They put him on the spot and he did what he was sposed to do,” Dreezy said. “Every single song he dropped is gold or plat, humble yourself girl.”
Jacquees chimed in and sent his support to Ella Mai while revealing that he and Mustard are planning on working together in the future.
“Me and @Djmustard already cleared this up and we plan on working,” he wrote. “Much success to ya.”
