1. I Found You - Alabama Shakes: ‘Cause I remember them days I waited so patiently/For God to bring someone who’s gonna be good to me/And then He blessed my soul.  2. Blue Ain’t Your Color - Keith Urban: But I just don’t understand how another man could take your sun and turn it ice cold.  3. How It’s Done – Maren Morris: It ain’t fair what she’s been giving/Now I’m on a mission for what you’ve been missing/Let me show you how.  4. In Common – Alicia Keys: If you could love somebody like me you must be messed up too.  5. Wonderwall – Oasis: So maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me.  6. Say You Won’t Let Go – James Arthur: I wanna live with you/Even when we’re ghosts/‘Cause you were always there for me when I needed you most.  7. F*ck ‘Em Only We Know – Banks: So come on, let’s pretend that no one else is watching while we play/By your side, that’s where I have to be now/We won’t hide/I breathe your kisses just to stay alive/I see exactly what you’re thinking/I can feel you with my eyes.  8. Magic – Coldplay: Call it magic/Call it true/Call it magic/When I’m with you/And I just got broken/Broken into two/Still I call it magic/When I’m next to you.  9. You Are – Estelle feat.

Die a Happy Man – Thomas Rhett: Baby that red dress brings me too my knees/Oh but that black dress makes it hard to breathe/You’re a saint, you’re a goddess, the cutest, the hottest, a masterpiece/It’s too good to be true, nothing better than you in my wildest dreams.  13. Yours – Ella Henderson: And if I’ve been feeling heavy/You take me from the dark/Your arms they keep me steady/So nothing could fall apart.  14. Leather & Lace – Stevie Nicks & Don Henley: Lovers forever, face to face/My city, your mountains/Stay with me stay.  15. I Get to Love You – Ruelle: One look at you, my whole life falls in line/I prayed for you before I called you mine.  16. God Made a Woman – Jarrod Niemann: Never gave Him a reason to bless me at all/And I still can’t believe that an angel would fall/For a guy like me, guess He sees who needs saving.  17.

An Appreciation Post for Estelle

So you all know this gorgeous lady, right? This is Estelle Fanta Swaray, better known by her stage name, Estelle. She’s commonly known as the voice actress of Garnet from Steven Universe.

On top of that, she’s also known for performing the We Bare Bears theme song, and her hit songs “Freak”,”Conqueror”, and “American Boy”.

Her song “American Boy” has won multiple musical awards, including a grammy!

And…if you want a day to celebrate on this first month of 2017, her 37th birthday is on January 18th!

So, I wanted to make this post to bring some attention to some of Estelle’s lesser known songs. Are “Freak”,”Conqueror”, and “American Boy” good songs? Absolutely! Without a doubt!

However, this post is for some of her more underrated gems that I haven’t seen anyone talk about.

First, did anyone know that Estelle’s first album was released in 2004?

Yup, that’s right! The 18th Day was released in 2004.

It features golden songs such as “1980“, “Don’t Talk”, “Maybe”, “Dance With Me”, and “Freedom”. It also features rap solos from UK rapper Baby Blue, John Legend, and Talib Kweli.

My personal favorite song from the album is “Maybe”!

If you’d like to listen to the whole album, then I believe it is available for free listening on Youtube! You can also buy it on iTunes, if I am not mistaken.

Now, in 2008…

We got Shine. This album from her is particularly popular because it’s cover was featured in a small scene from the Steven Universe episode “Steven’s Birthday”. It’s also the album which features “American Boy”, her most famous song.

This album features songs such as “Wait a Minute (Just a Touch)”, “No Substitute Love”, “More Than Friends”, “In The Rain”, “Back in Love”, and “Shine”. The album features solos from rappers John Legend, Kanye West, and Kardinal Offishall.

My personal favorite song from this album is “In The Rain”! It’s also my favorite song from Estelle in general.

This album is available to listen to for free on Youtube and Spotify, as well as available to buy on iTunes.

In 2012, Estelle released an album titled All of Me.

This album features songs like “Do My Thing”, “Back To Love”, “Thank You”, “Wonderful Life”, “Cold Crush”, and “Love The Way We Used To”.

My personal favorite song from the album “Cold Crush”!

The full album is available for listen on Youtube and Spotify, and available to buy on iTunes!

And now, here’s Estelle’s most recent album…

True Romance, released in 2015, with a special cover drawn by Rebecca Sugar!

True Romance feature songs like “All That Matters”, “Make Her Say (Beat It Up)”, “Silly Girls”, “Gotcha Love”, and “The Same”.

My personal favorite song from the album is “All That Matters”!

The full album is available on Youtube and Spotify, and available to buy on iTunes. 

Sorry for the super long post!!! I just love Estelle’s music a lot, and think it deserves more recognition than it gets.

Anyway, if you can find the time, listen to some of these songs, please! They’re truly amazing. And if RnB, Hip-Hop, and Rap aren’t really your favorite things, recommend these songs to people who like those genres!
