Estelle is an English Grammy Award winning R&B singer-songwriter whose 2012 album All of Me debuted at number 28 on the Billboard 200 chart.

They remind the listener that being on a different path from you is not the same as being wrong, and that in the end you should never let others' opinions change the way you want to be.
