In the forthcoming LP, Estelle has assured to fuse her signature R&B and hip-hop sound while paying homage to her Grenadian roots as she not only concentrates in reggae, but also embraces Afro-beats and Soca music.
Estelle is slated to perform in Philadelphia on July 28th at Penn’s Landing for the Pennsylvania Care Health Festival.
