Estelle

Biography

Though Estelle (nee Estelle Swaray) is a beautiful new face for U.S. audiences, the Londoner has established herself as one of the top talents in U.K. hip-hop. Her sweet voice, knack for soulful beats and propensity to break into raps will probably remind some of Lauryn Hill. Her first album, 2004's U.K.-only The 18th Day, featured Talib Kweli and John Legend; it was championed by British tastemaker Tim Westwood and heralded by British critics. Her long-awaited follow-up, Shine, is slated for a 2008 release and features some of the most distinguished producers in hip-hop.
