Multi-platinum Grammy Award winner Estelle has released her long-awaited fifth-studio album Lovers Rock.
The 14-track LP is Estelle’s most personal album to date, as it is not only a retelling of her parents’ love story, but also her centering in on her West Indian roots with a full-fledged reggae album, with touches of Afro-beats, dancehall and Soca.
Lover’s Rock is a timeline of her parent’s love as it begins with the exhilarating feeling of a new love found to heartache to self-worth and to ultimately reconciliation. In crafting the album, Estelle collaborated with esteemed producers Supa Dups (Drake, Beenie Man), Reefa (Lil Wayne), Jerry Wonda (Wyclef Jean, Justin Bieber), Harmony Samuels (Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez), and Dre Harris (Michael Jackson, Mary J Blige). The album also includes a heavy guest list including artists HoodCelebrityy, Chronixx, Kranium, Luke James, Tarrus Riley, Maleek Berry, Alicai Harley, Konshens, and her own label signees Nick & Navi.
In conjunction with the album release, Estelle has released two official videos for tracks from the collection – “Sweetly” and “So Easy” feat. Luke James. These videos are respectively part two and three, following the video for her lead single, “Better.”
