When I first heard Estelle, I wasn’t shocked to hear amazing hip hop/r&b coming from the UK.  When I first heard Estelle on Power 95.3 (Orlando’s New #1 for Hip Hop and R&B!), I was shocked to hear amazing hip hop/r&b from the UK actually catching on in the States.  I mean, when is the last time you heard a <em>British</em> artist on a mainstream American hip hop station? In <em>heavy</em> rotation? With the exception of reggaeton and dancehall artists from Latin America, Jamaica and such, mainstream hip hop in the United States has by American artists, and that’s that.  Still holding my breath to see if this leads to a wider acceptance of global hip hop (I’m betting, “Nope!”).

In the meantime, read FADER’s lovely cover story on Estelle, who is officially having the best summer ever.  It’s a good read in which you’ll discover things that you may not have known, like the fact that the chick has braces.
