Months after the release of And The Anonymous Nobody, De La Soul liberate a new visual for ‘Memory Of…(Us)’, which features Estelle and Pete Rock. Check it out above and pick up the new album via iTunes.
If you missed it, you can also check out De La’s recent documentary — De La Soul Is Not Dead — here.
Yesterday was this year’s Billboard Awards, which featured performances from Pitbull, Ed Sheeran, Chris Brown, Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, Mariah Carey and more…you can check those out below (which you still can, we imagine they won’t be up on YouTube for too long).
The standout (for the wrong reasons)? Kanye West, who’s performance of ‘All Day’ and ‘Black Skinhead’ was pretty much non-existent, both due to the network’s horrible censorship timing (maybe they just didn’t care) and the pyrotechnics that blocked most of the performance’s view. Ah well.
On 17th February, Estelle will be releasing new new project True Romance in the States (and, hopefully, in the UK). Below, we’ve provided a sampler of the project, which you can check out alongside the accompanying tracklisting. Definitely something to look forward to.

4. Time Share
5. The Bullshit (Snippet)
6. The Same
7. Silly Girls

A mash-up of the singer’s live acts, you can check out Estelle’s new visual for ‘Something Good’, which is taken from her forthcoming album True Romance (the album seems to be set for release next February in the States; not sure when for the UK).
During a recent interview with Vlad TV, Estelle breaks down the interesting concept of growing up Black in the United States vs. growing up in her hometown of the United Kingdom (her response quote in a nutshell: “not much”). She does seem to feel that America has made greater strides thanks to the power of money and a Black president (which could be debatable).
Estelle has been (quietly?) preparing for the release of her forthcoming album True Romance, which drops 4th November. We’ve already taken in her two singles ‘Make It Say (Beat It Up)‘ and ‘Conqueror‘; now, we get to see the remaining tunes that will appear on the project below.
