DJ Mustard Says It Was Him, Not Ella Mai, Who Removed Jacquees’ “Trip” Remix From YouTube & Soundclo


DJ Mustard is letting it be known that he was the one who had Jacquees’ viral cover of Ella Mai’s newest hit single “Trip” removed from the internet.

Jacquees, who is known for his “Quemixes,” decided to put his own spin to Ella Mai’s “Trip” and even shot and released a video for the song before she had a chance to.

Ella’s video was uploaded to YouTube last week (Tuesday, September 18th to be exact) and since then, Jacquees’ version has been scrubbed from the web.

Fans on social media started dragging Ella after news spread that she reportedly had Jacquees’ version of the song deleted and allegedly planned to sue him.

But, none of that was true, according to DJ Mustard, and he has since come to the defense of Ella—who is signed to his 10 Summers record label—after folks accused Ella of forcing Jacquees to delete his “Trip” cover/remix from YouTube and Soundcloud because his version had more hits than hers.

In response to the speculation, DJ Mustard decided to set the record straight once and for all because he’s “tired of people picking on” Ella Mai.

“Our artists don’t send cease and desists, we do,” the producer wrote in a Twitter post. “When you monetize content you don’t own you are stealing and no one steals from 10 Summers. Ella had no say in the matter and any platform reporting differently is spreading falsities.”

Jacquees’ team has also responded to the drama with their own statement (via Billboard), confirming that there is no beef between the two artists.

“For the new people who are just catching up to who Jacquees is as an artist, this has become very controversial for no reason,” reads the statement. “We love Ella and are cool with her team as well. He has been releasing not only Quemix songs but entire projects with remixes of other artists’ songs ranging back to 2013. This was an act of genuine support and should not turn into negativity for either of the artist or from their supporters.”

Jacquees also hopes that he and Ella Mai can work on an official collaboration in the near future.

“There is still hope for the song as an official remix or maybe fans will get something better that is an original collaboration,” the statement added.
