9 YEARS ago, London born singer-rapper Estelle released her solo single ‘1980,’ from her debut album The 18th Day which to date, still remains as one of her most popular albums in the UK and around the world. Sampling Tony Orlando‘s ‘Lazy Susan,’ Estelle talks about growing up in the 1980s, with multiple family members in their four bedroom house.

Estelle has become one of the most recognized British artists throughout her career; winning a Grammy Award for her collaboration with Kanye West, and she also worked with the likes of Rick Ross and Janelle Monae.
