wait a minute

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 9:37 PM

so, being high off my new ipod i set on a quest to find something new. i've been stuck on the same loop of the roots, mos def, common, illy jilly, and badu for like EVER, so i needed something fresh to add to the collection. don't get me wrong, i still love the classics, but i need some new blood.

saturday night i stumbled across Estelle, an Afro-Carribean Brit, with voice and swagger for days. so far i've downloaded a few of her songs, but i'm diggin what i've heard thus far. her style is a cross between 90s basement-funk/soulful house, brand new heavies, and moni love (huh?). i know, i know, my description is a bit convoluted (and perhaps all wrong), so i'll just let her introduce herself.

"Wait A Minute" ft. John Legend


American Boy Ft. Kanye West

    We have the same exact taste in music. I was also in search of some new music beyond the artists you listed and found Estelle via Pandora or Napster on Sunday. In fact, I'm in the process of adding her to my mp3 player right now.

    See, this is another reason why I gave you the You Make My Day Award.
