“I started off as a rapper, that’s why I’m so excited about Common,” Estelle said. “I was like don’t give me that Hollywood stuff, I don’t want Common acting, I want coming rapping.”

The album’s first single is “Break My Heart,” featuring Rick Ross. Estelle’s All of Me is slated for release later this year. —Shabazz
