One thing that stands out and is consistent about Estelle’s music is its diversity. Since here upbringing in London, she’s never been one for categories and she doesn’t plan to start now. Her newest album, True Romance, is filled with R&B, soul, reggae, hip-hop and more. No matter where you’re from or what you prefer, there are transcendent common denominators. “People like good music, they like a hook, they like to be happy and relate to it in some way,” she says. “That’s as simple as it is: music that people relate to that sounds good.”
True Romance is her fourth album and first since 2012. Heavily inspired by her own four-year relationship, she bears vulnerability and anchors the album around four themes: courage, passion, the bullshit and true romance. Life+Times talked with Estelle about creating True Romance and where her musical diversity comes from.
