With her silky, soulful vocals, Ella Mai extols a longtime lover who can still give her butterflies. Babyface weighs in, reminding her that she’s the inspiration for this lasting love. The dreamy jam interpolates “Can We Talk,” Tevin Campbell’s 1993 hit, which Babyface wrote and produced with Daryl Simmons.
“When I first heard Ella’s voice, I thought, ‘what an incredible and distinctive voice, I have to get in the studio with her!’” Babyface recalls. “Well, I did…and it was everything I imagined and more!”
“Working with Babyface was an absolute dream come true for me,” says Ella Mai. “To be welcomed and praised by someone so talented and acclaimed, I couldn’t have asked for our ‘Keeps On Fallin’’ sessions to be any better. We sang, we wrote, we laughed and we talked. Babyface is so humble and a pleasure to work with, I hope this record is the start of many more.”
“Keeps On Fallin’”—which marks Babyface’s first release since signing to Capitol Records—is from his forthcoming project. He produced the track with D’Mile (H.E.R., Silk Sonic, Ty Dolla $ign).
