Ella Mai announced a headlining North American tour in support of her recently issued, self-titled debut LPThe trek, preceded by a run of U.K. and European dates in January, kicks off February 12th in Vancouver, British Columbia and concludes March 28th in San Antonio, Texas. Tickets for the R&B singer’s “Debut Tour” go on sale October 26th.

The R&B singer released Ella Mai on October 12th. The Mustard-executive-produced album, which debuted at Number Five on the Billboard 200 Album chart, features guest spots from Chris Brown (“Whatchamacallit”), John Legend (“Everything”) and H.E.R. (“Gut Feeling”). The record also includes her breakout, triple-platinum single “Boo’d Up” and follow-up “Trip,” which cracked the Top 20 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart.

The 23-year-old Mai recently spoke to Rolling Stone about the whirlwind success of “Boo’d Up” and how social media directly led to her work with mega-producer Mustard. “He messaged me, like, ‘Are you free?'” she said of their 2015 chat. “So I was like, ‘Of course I’m free!’ I didn’t have any material out — he was going based off my Instagram covers. It’s one thing to sing covers on social media, and a different thing to make your own music.”
