Estelle pays tribute to West London in new album

The Grammy Award winning artist Estelle is back with her 5th album, and it’s a dedication and tribute to her west London roots, and a love story involving her parents.

 

Named after the reggae style 'Lovers Rock', kicked off with the Apple Music debut of a three-part video concept, that tells her parent's story of love, love lost and love found again.

 

The single and video for 'Better' is a mid-tempo dancehall flavoured cut that will appeal to reggae fans as well as Estelle's core R&B audience.

 

Born in West London to a Senegalese/Grenadian family, as a child, Estelle was exposed to African music, Gospel, reggae and dub. With Lovers Rock, her fifth album, the inspiration goes back to some of her earliest musical influences.

 

The album features new productions from Supa Dups and guest vocals from stars in reggae, African and R&B genres.
