Estelle’s first ever mixtape just dropped tonight, she calls it ‘I almost made a mixtape’. I have listened to it and I think its great, the mixtape reminds me why I like Estelle’s music, ever since she started leaning toward dance music I didn’t think she would come back down to earth and do something like this. Estelle has been talented from day 1 when she released 1980 and Free- both really good tunes; however I was never really into her music. After hearing her album ‘Shine’ on repeat at work I realised how talented she is. That album has some really good tunes on there I pretty much like the whole album. I was eager to find out what her next project would be like and I have to say I was a little bit disappointing. Though I like ‘One Love’ and ‘Freak’ they are both good tunes but I was just expecting her to do something a lot closer to her original sound which I think suits her a lot better.
Now here she is with her own mixtape and I think it’s some of her best work, have a listen and see what you think..
