Well, well Estelle. She's back and this time she ain't going anywhere if the soon to released album 'Shine' is as good as this track.

Just to make sure, you have the instantly recognisable tones of Mr Kanye West to rubber stamp the return of an artist that promised so much when she first emerged on to the scene.

The very palatable, instantly catchy and soon to be hit should put Estelle where she belongs and perhaps help to establish her stateside. The video for the single is top notch also. Shot in black and white (no your telly isn't on the blink ;-). Along with Kanye and the other American boys, look out for the odd shot of John Legend.
