Last month, multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-winning artist Estelle had exclusively premiered the official video for her latest single “Better” (directed by Estelle and Denzel Williams) on Apple Music. Today, the visual is now available to watch everywhere via YouTube.
“Better,” produced by Harmony Samuels [Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande] is the first single from Estelle’s forthcoming new reggae album, Lover’s Rock (out September 2018 via Established 1980 Inc and VP Records). “Better” is also an iTunes instant-grat track off VP Records’ Reggae Gold 2018, which is the 25th Anniversary of the iconic compilation album out now.

“Upon hearing the song ‘Better’, I knew it had all of the right elements of a modern day hit,” said Randy Chin, President at VP Records. “We are very excited to work with Estelle and be alongside her journey in her first full-length reggae project.”
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 and more. In the 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.
On Thursday, August 9th, radio 107.5 WBLS-FM will co-present Afro-Caribbean/Reggae night with a live performance by Estelle. Estelle will also be available for press in NYC during August 3rd – August 9th. For more information on the 2018 Wingate Concert Series, please visit brooklyn-usa.org.
