New Estelle (Feat. Kanye West) Video – “American Boy”

London town’s Brit crit beloved Estelle gets a black and white clip for her ’90s-radio, new soul flavored “American Boy,” which has become a bit of a hit because it features a blazing hot Kanye West verse in which he rhymes “seats” with “seats.” Lyrical dexterity like that’s why he’s a pro (and also why he’s also collecting checks on Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails“). Kanye’s joined in the vid by other American boy and her Homeschool label’s main proprietor, John Legend. Decent song but if you ask us this is all a totally unsubtle attempt at duping one of these dudes into being her ticket to a Green Card.


Estelle’s Shine is out 5/6 on John Legend’s Homeschool (Atlantic).
