'American Boy' finds her roping in pal Kanye to rap about WAGS and designer suits in a bid to rescue her career from free-fall. The sad thing is that it shouldn't have taken a guest spot from the self-proclaimed King of Hip-Hop to make this tune a hit. It already boasts bags of self-confidence ("Don't like his baggy jeans but I like what's underneath 'em," she purrs at one point), a winning chorus and sultry, super-sleek production from Will.i.am and John Legend. Glossier and smarter than most her contemporaries, all Estelle needs now are the record sales to match her obvious talents.
