Ester DeanIn part two of Ester Dean's four-part interview with Yahoo! Music, the songwriter explains why she put her singing career on hold, despite having a top 40 hit with "Drop It Low." The then struggling artist was beginning to get calls to write songs for megastars, so she figured her own solo career could wait.
Though Ester's decision to change the course of her career didn't meet everyone's approval, she received personal affirmation when "Rude Boy," the song she wrote for Rihanna, topped the charts.
That was two-in-a-half years ago. Ester's songwriting career has since flourished nicely. She's now managed by Jay-Z's Roc Nation, and is ready to move from behind-the-scenes into the forefront.
