Estelle is the daughter of a Senegalese mother and a Grenadian father, whom she did not meet until she was 23, and the second eldest of eight children. She grew up under a religious household where only Christian and gospel music were allowed. However, in her teenage years, she discovered hip-hop which ignited her dream of a musical career. She landed a job in London’s popular hip-hop record store Real Deal where she later started performing. She then went on to perform to other clubs and sang on the albums of DJ Skitz, The 57th Dynasty, and Blak Twang. In 2013, she released her first single “Excuse Me” under Paradise Isle label.
Opportunity came knocking on her door when she met Kanye West at a restaurant, who later introduced her to John Legend. Legend, in turn, produced some of the songs in her debut album. She released her first album “The 18th Day” in 2004 under V2 records, containing the hits “1980” and “Free”. Her second album “Shine”, released four years after her first, was produced by John Legend, released under Legend’s Home School label and distributed by US Atlantic records. Her single “American Boy”, in collaboration with Kanye West, released prior to the album, made it into international airwaves and reached the top 10 in several countries including UK, USA, and Canada, and was ranked number seven in Rolling Stone magazine’s “Best Of” list. The hit tune has been certified 2x-platinum for digital sales exceeding two million and garnered Estelle many awards including a Grammy for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration”. Her other collaborations include “World Go Round” with Busta Rhymes and “Rollacosta” with Robin Thicke, which appeared in their respective albums. Her third album, “All of Me”, produced by David Guetta, did not fare as well as her previous album. However, her song “Freak” was featured on the “Step Up 3D” soundtrack and David Guetta’s “One More Love” album. Her single, “Break My Heart” achieved moderate success, reaching number 33 on the US Hip-Hop/R&B chart. In 2013, she launched New London Records, an independent label in partnership with Bertelsmann Music Group (BMG), where she released two of her singles. Her latest album, “True Romance”, was released in 2015 which contained the single “Conqueror”. It peaked at number 42 on US Billboard’s Hot 100, which became a hit following “American Boy”. Her net worth is still growing.
Since 2013, Estelle has voiced Garnet in the critically-acclaimed animated series “Steven Universe”, singing its theme show as well as the theme show for the animated series, “We Bare Bears” in 2015. She also appeared on US shows “Real Husbands of Hollywood” and “Enpire”, where she performed a duet of “Conqueror” with Jussie Smollett.
