Ella Mai Announces Boo'd Up Summer Tour

Ella Mai's silky, R&B-inflected hit "Boo'd Up" has joined the swelling pool of contenders for "song of the summer." The record currently rests at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and already amassed 70 million views on YouTube. In celebration of the single's success, Ella announced Wednesday (June 13) that she's hitting the road this summer for the 15-city Boo'd Up Tour.

The Boo'd Up Tour officially launches on August 6 in Dallas and will take the singer throughout the South (Houston and Atlanta) before she makes her way up the East Coast for performances in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Brooklyn and Boston. From there, Ella will make stops in Toronto, Detroit and Chicago, then journey back to the West Coast for a final show in Seattle.

"NUMBER 6 ON THE HOT 100, NUMBER 1 AT URBAN RADIO [--] can’t wait to see you all and celebrate my favourite way possible," she wrote on Twitter. Tickets for the concert will be available for purchase on her website starting Friday.
