  • Shine is the second studio album by Grammy-Award winner singer/songwriter Estelle. The album was released on 31 March 2008 with the lead single, "Wait a Minute", released in November 2007. The second single, "American Boy" featuring Kanye West reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on downloads alone and was released physically on 24 March. The "American Boy" remixes, and the album "Shine" were taken from the US iTunes Store due to a decision by Atlantic to follow Kid Rock's successful decision to not sell his latest album on iTunes or any digital retailer. It was added back onto the store on 9 September due to a large drop in sales and "American Boy"'s decline in Billboard rankings. Shine has been certified Gold in the UK, denoting 100,000 copies sold. The album has sold 233,000 copies in the United States as of January 2012. Shine was one of the twelve nominees for the 2008 Mercury Prize.
