Awesome news! :D So pleased that they didn't hinder the chances of it going top 10. Makes you wonder where it could have peaked if they'd left it on there all the time though!

Congrats Estelle! :D

Hopefully this will move up a few spots next week, maybe even break US top 5? I think it could have

Hopefully this will move up a few spots next week, maybe even break US top 5? I think it could have even made #1, had promo and everything been better timed, but now its too late for that...although hopefully it will manage top 5 and be a big hit that stays around for a good while thanks to continued airplay... :D

i think the sample for the song is 'robot rock' by daft punk. and if its not, it does sound incredibly similar.

Amazing performance at Strictly Come Dancing! And WOW at her hair! She looks amazing! :o

Performance

Also Estelle joins the Brits in taking over the Grammy Awards! She is nominated for:

Song Of The Year
and
Best Rap/Sung Collaboration

This will give her so much press for her album in the US! Big news!

Love her weave in that performance, it's most definitely not the hair I saw her with last Friday! :lol: She looks so much better with longer hair IMO.

Congrats on the Grammy nod Estelle! So proud of what she's achieved! :D

Hope so. At the moment she's a bit of a one hit wonder really.

Its like, they made her sing American Boy on strictly Come Dancing, when she could have promoted 'Come Over'.

I love her soulful stuff, I hope on her next album she does the soulful stuff more does more crossover commercial stuff for singles as thats what will make her album sell!
4-5 commercial singles, the rest of the album proper soulful material like In The Rain and Come Over!

I'd actually really like a very commercial album for her next record, with loads of collaborations.

She should keep the soul feel, but also Hip Hop n RnB.

She's meant to be collaborating with Adele in the near future as well, as I read in The Sun, dont know its been posted.
