[lastfm]Estelle [/lastfm], who is best known for her “American Boy” single featuring [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm], is releasing a new video for her song “FREAK”, featuring [lastfm]Kardinal Offishall[/lastfm] today at 1PM and we have the behind the scenes look.
[pullquote quote=”It’s kind of a metaphor for how you control your life.” credit=”Estelle”][lastfm]Estelle’s[/lastfm] “FREAK”, is quite different from the “American Boy” track we play here at AMP Radio. “It’s kind of a metaphor for how you control your life, how you have different personalities, and how you bring them out when you need them.”, she says in the behinds the scenes interview included below.
The video is directed by Nabil Elderkin, the same guy who did [lastfm]Kayne West'[/lastfm]s latest video, “Coldest Winter”. Estelle says of the singer, “..he gets it, he understands it’s coming from a place of art, not just trying to be different.”
According to estellemusic.com, “FREAK” was produced by [lastfm]David Guetta[/lastfm] and is off of Estelle’s new album All of Me which is coming soon! The “FREAK” track extended dance mix and “FREAK” tank will be available to buy exclusively on estellemusic.com for $19.99!”
Check out the behind the scenes interview below and then Friday 2/26 at 1PMPST/4pm EST watch the premiere on estellemusic.com.
My favorite part of the song is the sample of [lastfm]Soul II Soul[/lastfm]’s “Back To Life” chorus.
