When Estelle broke onto the US music forefront with her smash Grammy Winning song, “American Boy” with Kanye West (It was nominated for 3 Grammys off her album “Shine” under John Legend’s label “HomeSchool Records”), you knew that the woman with the exquisite soulful voice and poetic heartfelt writing was destined to become one of the hottest music stars in the world, and now with the release of her newest album “All Of Me” after 4 years, she is indeed living up to all the hype!  With one of it’s hit songs “Break My Heart” with Rick Ross a hit last summer giving the world a taste of what’s to come, the new album is out last week to RAVE reviews, sold out concerts all over the country (The concert release party at Irving Plaza in NYC was completely sold out and featured a cameo on stage with John Legend!), a charting hit already with one of my favorite current songs “Thank You”, appearances on VH1, NPR, and a standing ovation appearance on David Letterman last week, it looks like Estelle is taking her spot as one of the Queens of R&B for a long long time to come. 

Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with the Grammy Winner to talk about “All Of Me”, the former relationship that helped influence much of the album, what it was like working with artists like Trey Songz and Chris Brown, her relationship with mentor John Legend who helped cross her over to the US, becoming a fashion icon, and soo much more!  Estelle is one of the most soulful and unique voices in music, and was an absolute sweetheart to meet and interview..Enjoy Kade Nation!!

Here is Estelle killing it on Letterman with “Thank You”…
