Picks and Pans Review: First Look: Estelle's "American Boy" Video Reeling in Kanye West and John Legend
For Estelle, it was only fitting that Kanye West (with Estelle, above) and John Legend (right) should appear in the video for "American Boy." After all, West raps on the cut, and Legend signed Estelle as the first artist on his new label, Homeschool Records. And she met both men in 2003 at Roscoe's House of Chicken n Waffles in L.A. So what would Estelle's dream American boy be like? "Smart like [Barack] Obama, as charismatic and musical as Kanye and as stylish and sexy as John Legend."
