British singer-songwriter and producer Estelle got her start in the UK underground and gradually achieved more commercial success, thanks to the award-winning smash hit “American Boy." The undeniable swagger heard in her music also helped her to approach Kanye West at a Los Angeles restaurant in the early 2000s and ask for an introduction to John Legend, who ultimately went on to produce two songs on her debut album. She attended the 2013 BET Awards as a nominee for Best International Act.
