Its about time Estelle made it. Its taken almost 8 years since she was releasing hot mixtapes.
American Boy is a wicked track that will interest not only the British buying public but also American. We need to get behind Stells and try and get British black music recognised!!

Video is decent, nothing flashy but yeah not bad!!

Love this song. I have no clue who Etelle is but I love her voice, I love her accent on the chorus. Is she any good? If I explore more of her, will I be disappointed?

It depends, this song is very different from all her other songs. She takes a more hip hop direction on her music. The 18th Day is a FANTASTIC album though, really good Hip Hop/R&B.

Absolutely, the last album is fantastic but is essentially very British in my opinion whereas the new material IS more American thanks to the involvement of Kanye/John.. both are fantastic, so yeah listen to a few tracks from the old album but if that's not your bag, I can guarantee the stuff from the new album is all fantastic..
