12.9.12 - New Music - Leona Lewis
As we all know by now, I’m not the biggest Leona Lewis fan. I can’t help it, I’m just not. I recognize her vocal talents and I can completely understand why other people really like her…it just…isn’t for me.
I did like her latest album, ‘Glassheart’ well enough. Not her best, but it has a progressive sound, and she approached dance and dubstep in a really fresh way.
Thankfully, not all of ‘Glassheart’ is in the new electro vein. Leona knows what keeps her fans coming back, and she’s not going to disappoint.
Second official single “Lovebird” is exactly what the world knows Leona for and what everyone wants from her.
I must say, this is probably my favorite Leona ballad. I really didn’t care for all of her past hits (I know, I know, you’re freaking out that I didn’t love “Bleeding Love”. Get over it.), but this is a really nice tune. I can recognize that it isn’t the smash that some of her previous records were, but I still like it.
Now, will it do well? Considering it was released a month ago in the UK and has yet to chart, I’m going to…hope for the future?
‘Glassheart’ really isn’t happening for her, is it?
“Lovebird” and all of ‘Glassheart’ aren’t out in the US yet, but apparently they should be at some point in 2013.
