Estelle has yet to let us down; her albums get better as her career moves forward even after the enormous jolt of "American Boy," the Kanye West collaboration which brought UK rapper/singer Estelle to the US public eye. The next Estelle album will be called All of Me and judging from the new single "Break My Heart" ft Rick Ross, we're happy to get even a piece of her. She also worked with David Banner and Daley recently on this track, "Benz."
