Crisp N' Fresh Vid: Thank You, Thank You

Monday, September 19, 2011

Ah. This is more like it.

Estelle has been hitting a few foul balls for me, the worst being the 'buzz-single' "Freak" and its accompanying video (ick). All Of Me, Estelle's third installment, has been in talks since 2009, and has yet to see a release date even though a few song drops have occurred from it. So I took the time to sit down and see if maybe Estelle could hit a homer this time for me, and she has, thanks to this lush black n' white lyric video for song, "Thank You". Usually lyric videos can feel a bit tedious, but this one feels as if you've stepped into the rolling credits of a flick from the 1930's or 40's (yes, I watch the mess out of Turner Classic Movies....)--very lush indeed. "Thank You" has pretty much put me back in Estelle's good graces, as it's the British singer doing what made Shine, her 2008 sophomore album, such a melodic package. Very soothing to the ear and has sort of a nod to Mary J. Blige in there. Sure the auto-tune is smeared through it, but applause goes towards the subtle usage of it. Now this is a single, Estelle.
