Earlier this year, I’d seen a familiar name on a list of new single releases. It was by UK R&B singer Estelle. I’m sure you know her from the catchy “American Boy” featuring Kanye West, which was a huge hit and a strong international debut for the singer, but somehow Estelle didn’t become as big as I thought she would be and I hardly heard anything else from her since.
In my constant search for blog topics, I’d spent quite some time looking for that new release, but was never able to locate it to write about it. I just figured it was a project that featured her, but it was not an official release of her own.
This time around there is an official new single out. She’s released a song called “Love Like Ours” with a new video upload on her Vevo account. The song features dancehall singer Tarrus Riley, who you may know from his collaboration on Major Lazer’s “Powerful” with Ellie Goulding. Needless to say the new Estelle song is a dancehall or reggae inspired song.
