While men have largely struggled to make the transition from U.K. sensations to successful American imports, the same hasn’t held true for British females. In fact, from Adele to Estelle, women raised on the other side of the Atlantic seem to be all the rage. Maybe it’s simply because there’s just something alluring about an International woman. The aforementioned Estelle recruits none other than David Banner for her new single, and Banner responds by giving the crooner a “tougher than you’re usual Estelle” beat. That kind of banging is familiar territory to guest stars Trey Songz and Chris Brown, who continue to flip between their rap and R&B leanings with ease. Delivering an even more impressive performance is the headliner, who proves she can go as hard as the big boys with sexy and strong vocals that demand to be taken seriously. With an offering like International there’s no telling what Estelle’s All of Me album will sound like when it finally drops - we’ll just have to wait until February 28 to find out. In the meantime, bust out those passports and press play…
