Adams, President of the Borough of Brooklyn in a press release. “I thank Make Music New York, Globe Star Media-N-Entertainment, and all of the other sponsors and partners for making this great musical event a success, which will entertain and inspire the hearts and minds of thousands of Brooklynites,” he concluded.
Estelle has recently released the single “Better” from her upcoming Fall album Lovers Rock on VP Records/Established 1980 Records. In comparison to those of her formative years, Lover’s Rock is Estelle’s most personal album to date, as she centers in on her West Indian roots with a full-fledged reggae album. She has collaborated with esteemed Jamaican producer Supa Dups [Drake, Beenie Man], Reefa [Lil Wayne], Jerry Wonda [Wyclef Jean], Harmony Samuels [Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande] and more. In the forthcoming LP, Estelle has assured to fuse her signature R&B and hip-hop sound while paying homage to her Grenadian roots as she not only concentrates in reggae, but also embraces Afro-beats and Soca music.
All shows are scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM, with gates to the public opening at 6:00 PM.
