Estelle ft. Kanye West: American Boy... YEEEEEAAAAHHHHH

Estelle ft. Kanye West- American Boy

Finally. Estelle is about to blow up, big time. I've been sitting patiently, twiddling my thumbs, for years, waiting for her talent to become appreciated. And now the time has come.

'American Boy', the second single from new album 'Shine', is the song which lays it out. Estelle is essentially one of the UK's brightest hip-hop hopes, but she has yet to make it big. The last few months, and the build-up to the new album's release, have been different. The sight of this song at the top spot on the Hype Machine was a great sight, and I even managed to get 'Wait A Minute (Just A Touch)' to number one a couple of months back. These are milestones, and the single already has the makings of a hit, after receiving some serious airplay on UK radio and great write-ups across the board on blogs and in various publications.

The placement of Kanye West on this track is key, and he acquits himself well. However, the story behind this collaboration is more important than the result. In Estelle's own words:

"So then Will pulls out the beat and this is me: 'woooh, let me get down to this one, it sounds like a funky house tune.' And we wrote the song. Then we asked Kanye to be on it, and he said 'let me listen to the rest of the album and see what it's like. He genuinely liked the whole album, so he appeared on the song."

Kanye West's seal of approval is not something to be sniffed at, and I will await the release of 'Shine' on May 6th with bated breath. 'American Boy's physical release is March 24th, and as a download on March 17th. Visit Estelle's site. Do you love the single? Have you been a fan since the beginning?

    Estelle's voice is simply amazing. She has so much going on for her aside from "American Boy"

    I was checking out this awesome bit on KIISFM.COM. Really good clips of her along with an interview.

    Sie denken, Sie lernen beim Ausgehen Ihre große Liebe kennen? Das mag sein, aber das beschraenkt Ihre Kennenlernchancen im Wesentlichen auf den Samstagabend. Das Internet dagegen hat immer geöffnet - auch am regnerischen Dienstagabend oder dem tristen Sonntagmorgen.

    I do like the way you have presented this matter plus it does give me personally some fodder for thought.

    Nonetheless, coming from what I have experienced, I basically wish when the comments pile on that folks
    stay on issue and in no way embark upon a tirade associated with some
    other news du jour. l the same, thank you for this superb piece and though I
    do not really go along with this in totality, I
    regard the perspective.

    One more important issue is that if you are a senior, travel insurance
    intended for pensioners is something you should really take into account.
    The old you are, greater at risk you happen to be
    for getting something undesirable happen to you
    while in another country. If you are definitely not covered by some comprehensive nsurance coverage, you could have quite a few serious problems.

    Thanks for sharing your suggestions on this weblog.

    Thanks for your handy post. Over time, I have come to understand that the actual symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by this build up of fluid involving the lining on the lung and
    the chest muscles cavity. The condition may start within the chest region and pass
    on to other parts of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include weight-loss,
    severe breathing trouble, fever, difficulty eating, and
    bloating of the face and neck areas. It must be noted some people with the
    disease usually do not experience almost any serious indications at

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog
    article or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same topics
    as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
