John Legend, Swizz Beatz Give Their ‘All’ for New Estelle Album

Estelle

Now that she has unleashed her inner “Freak” in the out-of-this-world video for her new single, Estelle plans to keep the surprises coming on her forthcoming album.

The dance-floor-ready record featuring Kardinal Offishall is just a taste of what the “American Boy” chart-topper has in store on her third effort All of Me. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” she tells Rap-Up.com.

Among those she worked with on the follow-up to 2008′s Shine are Swizz Beatz (“He produced a bunch of stuff with me”) and Travis McCoy (“I also did a song with Travis from Gym Class Heroes”).

In addition, Estelle reteamed with John Legend, whose HomeSchool imprint she is signed to. “I did a bunch of songs with John,” she reveals. “He helped me write about four or five songs.”

Although she has nabbed some of music’s most talented artists for her project, the British songstress doesn’t want to overload it with features. “The album’s called All of Me, so I didn’t want to put too many people on it.”

Estelle’s third studio album is due this September on HomeSchool/Atlantic Records.

    @listen,
    It’s the exact same strategy she used with her last album. “Wait A Minute” was released as a buzz single in November ’07, but the album Shine didn’t drop until March/April ’08 after “American Boy” was already blowing up the radio stations…

    I for one hate “Freak,” but I’m sure there are plenty of good tracks on the CD given who she’s been collaborating with…

    records are taking way longer to push nowadays. artists have to work the record, go on a promo/radio tour before people even give it a listen. they’re plan is likely to see if people jump on the first single. if they do, drop a second single that’s similar. if not, drop a completely different single before the album comes out. hopefully getting at least one hit out before it drops.
