Since Estelle signed a joint deal with John Legend‘s Homeschool Records and Kardinal Offishall’s Black Jays International (via Atlantic), she has put in countless hours of work until she’s sure her worldwide major debut will Shine. Following the struggles of Wait A Minute, the West London native found her biggest success to date thanks to a certain American Boy named Kanye West (currently #1 on the UK charts). Giving the world one last sampler before the album drops; Estelle showcases her singing and rapping skills, demonstrating how her determination has helped her rise to the top. Albeit in an untraditional sound, A-list producer Swizz Beatz adds some luster to the debut’s title track; Shine is currently available in the UK and will be stateside on April 29.
