Released: 13th July 2018.
Ahead of the release of her yet-to-be-titled reggae album, Estelle whets fans' appetites with "Better", a sensual introduction to the tale of her parents' love affair. Draped in a persistent Afrobeat instrumental, intertwined with reggae, soul, and R&B fittings, "Better" excels in the melodic department, and the island-based twang of the male vocal on the refrain dances in erotic tandem with Estelle's gently voiced verses.
On first listen, "Better" sounds deceptively ordinary, but crank the volume up, seek immersion in the party kickstarted by the song's infectious beats, and join the growing line of fans eagerly anticipating LP #5 from the British songstress. This is certainly a must-add to all summer playlists.
