MN2S is proud to welcome the Grammy award winning Estelle to the booking agency live roster.
Estelle is best known for the international chart-shattering success of her song ‘American Boy’, which won the Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2009. The track was co-written by Estelle, will.i.am, John Legend and Kanye West, and was produced by will.i.am. It’s sound was a fusion of r&b, jazz and hip hop influences, with Estelle dulcet tones effortlessly carrying the track.
Before ‘American Boy’, Estelle was an up and coming artist known mostly for her rapping. The track ‘1980’ saw substantial success, reaching number 14 in the UK chart, and gaining airplay from BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Post-American Boy, Estelle released the album All of Me, which featured yet more collaborations with the biggest artists in the r&b world, including trendsetter Janelle Monae and rapper Rick Ross.
Estelle recently joined the ranks of Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige and Patti LaBelle by taking on a role as a guest star on the most popular show in the USA, Empire. In her role, she starred alongside Terence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, portraying a soul singer and duetting with Jussie Smollett, performing “Conquerer” with him. Estelle’s appearance catapulted the song up the mainstream charts, and it nearly topped the r&b chart.
Also in 2015, Estelle released her fourth studio album True Romance to great acclaim. The album put Estelle’s skillful rapping and singing front and centre, with her trademark mix of r&b and hip hop.
With MN2S as her booking agent Estelle plans to bring her trademark mix of soul, hip hop and r&b to the masses. We are thrilled to be involved in this stage of her career.
