The thing about Leven Kali is that he’s an underrated genius. The thing about Ella Mai is that as of a few hours ago, her genius is platinum certified. Not only is Leven’s remix of her platinum, chart-topping smash hit, Boo’d Up surrounded by poetic timing, it’s also an absolute hit – respectful of and distinct from the original in each and every way – worthy of its own precious metal.
With each subsequent release, it feels like Leven Kali is working towards the position in music which he deserves – at the innovative head of the neo-soul, mellow pop, future R&B pack. So, not only is his rendition of Boo’d Up a groovy summer romance jam, it’s also the wisest of business decisions that will undoubtedly aid in the spread and further acceptance of his music as the sound that all of us new-age vocal fans really need.
