We asked Estelle to give us the 411 on her upcoming album. “It’s a reggae album, reggae Afro-beat that kind of vibe is what we went for with it. It feels like home, it’s definitely a natural thing for me,” she explains. “I’m just really happy to be doing a record like this.

The albums single debuted a brand new hairstyle for the music icon. “My Natural hair is very thick, extremely thick, so I kind of hit that point where I was like, ‘Okay I’m going to grow my hair out,’” explains the “American Boy” singer. “I wanted it to be Natural, long and wild. I’ve been experimenting with weaves, I’ve never been a ‘weave girl’ so I’ve been experimenting with weaves for the past four years. It’s been an experience—between the hair on the floor from shedding and the consistent maintenance.”

If your curious on one of Estelle’s beauty inspirations she explained, “I’m an advocate of very long hair. One of the people I think has always done really long hair and always does it so amazingly is [model/actress] Naomi Campbell. She’s like our Queen, our girl, and our Black British girl. So to me she’s hair goals when she has that long weave.”
