Estelle Busy Prepping New Album, Wants Ghostface Killah



Singer/Songwriter/MC Estelle is currently in the studio putting the final touches on her new album All of Me, which is slated to hit stores later this fall.

“I’m nearly done, I wanted to put it out in September, but then I had another idea,” said Estelle. “So I went back and said let me start recording some more things. I think I have another two weeks of recording, then we’ll go ahead start mixing it, and then get it out, she said.”

Estelle first began buzzing in the U.K. before catching the attention of R&B singer John Legend who he signed her as the first artist on his Homeschool label, distributed by Atlantic Records.

Estelle’s 2008 album Shine spawned the hit record “American Boy” featuring Kanye West.

The record garnered Estelle various award nominations including the win for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 2009 Grammys.

Earlier this year Estelle released the record “Freak” featuring Kardinal Offishall, which was initially supposed to be her first single off the new album.

The follow-up and her current single from All of Me is “Fall in Love” featuring Queens rapper Nas.

Estelle is very excited about her new project and is still in the process of racking up features.

“It’s too many people, so many people that I remember owe me features right now,” she said. “Hopefully I want to get Ghost Face Killah on the album, we talked about some stuff. I’m featured on his last album, so I want to get back up with him. There’s a song I just wrote the other day that I want to get Mr Hudson on and we've been speaking about working together. The way I work is like, do the record and then I’ll pull people in. So I’m at that point of pulling people in now, said Estelle.”
