Crisp N' Fresh: Shiny, Happy, Sunny People Emerge In Estelle's World

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

To get the obvious out of the room, Estelle's latest single, "Fall In Love" sounds just like "American Boy". While I usually don't praise unimaginative recycling of ideas, but in this case, I happen to like the song...possibly because "Freak" was so bad that this practically Scope Minty Freshes out that bad taste. And the video isn't half bad, because it's summery, shiny and features a very very very fine looking Jesse Williams as Estelle's love interest. Yeah, it is going into a chick flick moment where boy-meets-girl-boy-and-girl-try-to-act-like-nothing-is-going-on-with-friends-but-they-can't-fight-this-feeling-anymore-so-they-should-fall-in-love...but shouldn't falling in love be like that, with background music, montages and all? Oh, and John Legend pops up too, you know, because you can't have a happy and shiny video without him surging up the endorphins factor. Summer lovin' does happen so fast.
