Grammy and MOBO Award winning singer/hip hop act Estelle is ready to put “American Boy” in the vault — permanently. “I’m just recording this new album. I’m sick of singing “American Boy” so I should do something new,” says Estelle. While Estelle insists there is no love lost for American boys, including close supporters John Legend and Kanye West, the former “Shine” singer says the next album is shifting towards a fresh direction. “It’s going great, big songs, big hooks. More of the same, but some freshness. Big producers, same thing.” At this time a release date for Estelle’s as-yet-untitled follow up to “Shine” has not been set. Swizz Beatz and Wyclef Jean have been linked to the project.
