Editors’ Notes

Executive-produced by John Legend, Estelle's sophomore album Shine brings together the best and brightest from Legend’s circle. Kanye West delivers “American Boy,” a slice of modern disco that is perfect backdrop for the song’s cross-continental romance, while Wyclef Jean and Mark Ronson, bring to the table a global sensibility well-suited to Estelle, a West Londoner with a mom from Senegal and a dad from Grenanda. Jean’s tracks, “No Substitute Love” and “So Much Out of the Way,” are hypnotic and heavy, his best productions in years; Ronson, on the other hand, comes through with “Magnificent,” a raw funk beat infused with Jamaican flavor. Of course, these producers are only as good as their singer, and Estelle is completely self-possessed and stylish. In league with other contemporary British sirens like Amy Winehouse and Nicole Willis, Estelle is soulful but not stereotypical, charming but not cutesy. She represents something fiercely current yet utterly timeless and her Shine is a true rarity: a mainstream female pop album that is as sophisticated as it is fresh.

Customer Reviews

Shine more than American Boy

I bought Estelle's Shine because I really like the American Boy single with Kanye West. After listening to the album several times I have a number of songs that I like even better than American Boy. Estelle's voice at times reminds me of Lauryn Hill, other times India Arie and on a few tracks Lily Allen. I shouldn't have hesitated purchasing this, with John Legend as the producer you can't go wrong. There isn't one song that I skip past which is pretty rare for me.

You can't beat $7.92. Buy It!
