Estelle ft. Kanye West - American Boy

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Estelle

Have you ever heard one of your friends say, “The grass is always greener on the other side”?  Obviously UK singer Estelle has, because on her second single her eyes are on an American Boy.  Of course any trip stateside wouldn’t be complete without a stop in Chicago, or more specifically the “West Side.”  Featuring none other than Kanye, the acclaimed MC boasts about his popularity in the UK and throws in some old-English terminology along the way.  While Estelle impresses with her vocals, Ye’s electric-guitar beat will have audiences on both sides of the pond enjoying American Boy.  Flight attendants prepare for takeoff; Estelle’s album Shine is set to leave the runway in February.
