Album Watch: Estelle To Get 'Freak'-ish On 'All Of Me'

Thursday, February 25, 2010

So Estelle is issuing a new album this year, and nobody told me? Oh, yeah, I'm supposed to know these things, right? Forgive me for slippin' on the report of the British hip-hop/soulster following up her 2008 breakthrough, Shine with a brand new set of songs on the upcoming third effort, All of Me. On All of Me, Estelle is reuniting with Shine collaborators such as Swizz Beatz and Wycelf Jean, but she's going to be mixing up the salad bowl to not keep her fans in stagnant waters. 

Estelle noted that she was going to be going back to her rapping roots, instead of singing, and it shows in the David Guetta produced first single, "Freak". Featuring Kardinal Official, "Freak" is kind of a step away from what "American Boy" was, and it's sort of welcomed though we might hear something poppier than the R&B infused Shine. The music video for "Freak" will be premiering this Friday on Estelle's official website, but in the meantime check behind the cut for a look behind the CGI and Grace Jones inspiration drenched video. Freakishly exciting indeed.

  1. I tried to 'like' the Freak song, but it sounded like a bunch of noise..........I can't. LOL Good luck to her though.
