We’re not sure who hurt Estelle or what she endured to survive, but from the sound of her new single, it appears that the Brittish chanteuse came out of it stronger.
On “Conqueror”, Estelle evokes triumph, strength and courage on the emotional track which will appear on her forthcoming album True Romance, due out on Nov. 4.
During a USA Today interview, Estelle said she had to learn some things about herself after going through a difficult break up. “I had to figure out who I was again. I had ask to myself questions like, ‘What kinds of things do I like?’ This album is about the time in between breaking up with someone and becoming happy again.”
The ESSENCE Festival performer also admits to finding strength in the small things.
“At first, grocery shopping is sad because you’re used to think of (your ex) when you’re shopping. Then you realize how much cheaper the bill is now. Those little joys that are the breakthroughs,” she said.
