Introducing… Estelle

Lily Allen was so last year. 2008 is all about R&B singer Estelle. The UK import is gearing up to release her second album on John Legend’s Homeschool label via Atlantic. Estelle reminds us of Corinne Bailey Rae mixed with Lauryn Hill (minus the crazy).

Watch the video for her first single “Wait A Minute (Just A Touch),” which was produced by will.i.am. It features a cameo by John Legend. Estelle’s U.S. debut Shine is scheduled to drop on February 12th and will feature production from Swizz Beatz, Mark Ronson, and Wyclef Jean.
