loveR's ROCK

The most enduring love stories often repeat themselves during different times, at different places, and in different people.

As Estelle built the framework for her fifth full-length and first album for the newly minted partnership between her own Established 1980 label and VP Records, Lover’s Rock, the multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning UK singer, songwriter, actress, and humanitarian realized a pattern. Her own relationship experiences bore a subtle resemblance to those of her Senegalese mother and Grenadian father who “got together, had children, broke up, found each other again twenty years later, and happily married a decade after.”

Sharing her personal life without a filter, the process continued a long tradition of sharp straight talk.

LOVER’S ROCK | THE MIKE & DEEN STORY

BETTER 

She initially teased the offering by way of “Love Like Ours” featuring Tarrus Riley. Within a few months, it cracked seven million cumulative streams and earned acclaim from Essence and Complex who declared, “Estelle has a knack for creating songs about love, and her latest might be one of her best yet.”

Produced by Harmony Samuels, the follow-up “Better” featured on Reggae Gold and heralded the album’s impending arrival. Pairing her silky delivery with finger-snaps and airy percussion, it slips into an Island-inspired cadence before a high-energy breakdown as she proclaims, “No one in the world can love you better.”

“I wanted to make something that captured the feeling of walking into a room and knowing at the bottom of your heart, this other person is the one,” she says. “It pushes through your spirit. You know you’re going to be together forever.”
