UPDATED: Wynter Gordon Vs. Estelle: Who Got The Better David Guetta Jam?

UPDATED: Oh, let's just cut to the chase: Wynter Gordon is the surprising winner of who got the better David Guetta-produced single between her and Estelle. I'd been meaning to throw "Dirty Talk" up here for two weeks now but got sidetracked by a trip back east. Turns out that, despite lots of bloggy speculation that "Dirty Talk" was produced by David Guetta, it may have actually been done up by Gregory "Jupiter Ace" Ferguson (at least according the the ever-reliable Wikipedia and an Anonymous comment.) Still, miles better than Estelle in my book.

Anyway, here 'tis:

"Dirty Talk" was made available on iTunes earlier this week. Estelle's "Freak" video also popped up a few days back. The song itself (which also features Kardinal Offishall) is a bit too minimalist for my taste. The video is a right trip, though:

You might recall singer-songwriter Wynter Gordon as the broad who warbled the chorus on Flo Rida's Eiffel 65-ripping 2009 hit "Sugar" (listen here). And you might recall Estelle as the broad who won a Grammy for "American Boy." Also, in case you missed it, you can read my d'luvvly interview with David Guetta here.

    Both songs are great but I do think Wynter's Dirty Talk is superior based on my 1st listen. I like the direction Estelle is going with her new album though.

    Hasn't Wynter Gordon meant to be happening for ages and ages now? Surveillance was a song she did about 2 - 3 years ago that was brilliant... Hopefully this one will finally launch her!

    Jupiter Ace produced Dirty Talk, not Guetta.

    Anonymous, yeah, just now seeing that on the always reliable (ahem) Wikipedia, though there seems to be conflicting information out there. Will amend accordingly, thanks!
