English R&B star Ella Mai’s song “Boo’d Up” was one of the biggest hits of last year. But what you probably don’t know about her, she’s a baller too. 

Ella was almost a professional soccer player.

A little athlete love.

Looks like Tatum’s fans are not having it. 

Tatum is averaging 16.5 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this season and has shot 40.6 percent from three-point range in his two-year NBA career. 

A great start for the young Celtics star. 

It is not at all surprising he’s getting the attention of Ella Mai.
