From the Album
• However, no one is more surprised at how “Boo’d Up” is clicking with listeners than Mai herself.
“We released ‘Boo’d Up’ a year ago now on my third EP Ready,” Mai tells Billboard. “None of us thought this song could possibly have a rebirth. I feel like it’s God’s time and I can’t really question it. But we’re extremely excited and grateful that everything is happening the way it’s happening.”
• Mai cites the track’s nostalgic feel and catchy chorus as key reasons behind its burgeoning popularity. In fact, the singer/songwriter says a lot of people have been tagging her to show their kids singing the chorus. “The song’s content is very innocent and very loving, something any age group can relate to,” adds Mai. “Everyone has been in a situation where, as I say in the song, they’re head over heels in love with someone. No one else really matters at that point. It’s just about that person.”
• “Boo’d Up” stood at No. 6 on the Hot R&B Songs chart as of the week dated April 28, 2018. The song also vaulted seven slots from 38-31 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and another 10 slots on the Billboard Hot 100 from 72-62.
