The CDQ/no tags version of "All About You", which first appeared on Funkmaster Flex's Who You Mad At? Me Or Yourself? mixtape.
Diggin' this collab a lot, simply put. All parties involved do their thing. Chef cooks up some dope verses with Estelle sounding a little different than I'm accustomed to (in a good way). Jerry Wonda on the production, complimenting both artists' very different sounds.
From her style to her voice, I just love everything about Estelle. This British-born beauty more noticeably hit the scene with her global hit "American Boy" featuring Kanye West in 2008. Now Estelle is back and ready to drop her newest effort entitled All Of Me. I got a chance to sit down with the songstress during her Chicago stop on her "All of Me" tour.
All Of Me being Estelle's third album, will be dropping this month.
"I have been living and writing about it, and this is what has formed 'All Of Me' its a little deeper its more soulful; Someone just told me its like the break-up album, I call it the album of how you get over a break-up."
A lot has been said about the unspoken stigma in the industry about what beauty is. I am a true believer that beauty comes in all shapes, colors, and sizes. In light of black history month, I asked Estelle her thoughts of beauty in the industry and her experience of a beautiful dark-skin woman in the spotlight, since there isn't that many.
"I think it's just a shame and it upsets me that people take the lightskin/darkskin thing for more than it is, cause there is wretched on both sides of the fence ...every single part of the line there is wretched."
Estelle also let me in on her new love of acting and that she will be appearing on "The Game" this season. Check out the interview above and take a deeper look at another side of Estelle.
