Leona Lewis Single - What do you think?

Here is Leona's new single, "Bleeding Love"

http://www.leonalewismusic.co.uk/perezhilton/

It is absolutely amazing, reminds me of old school Whitney. I can't wait until her album release on November 5.

What you you think?

Re: Leona Lewis Single - What do you think?

Awesome, just what i hoped for.

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

I was expecting more than that from her.
But it's ok for me.

It's nice. I'd definitely listen to it more than once.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: Leona Lewis Single - What do you think?

This is going to be another big #1 for her considering she is performing it live on the X-Factor finals next month and then it goes on release a few days after that. That is how to sell a single

This song definitely has the touch of early Mariah to it which isn't bad as I think there is a niche in the pop market for this kind of thing still.

Re: Leona Lewis Single - What do you think?

I like it but it has no crossover potential in America.

It could get on some Adult Contemporary Stations and maybe some soft rock station on radio.
A little too 80s but not in a good way. It doesn't sound like she's enhancing a sound but going back to it.

Her voice isn't as mature as Mariah's or Whitney's when they were her age.
They could get away with singing songs like this.

Funny I would have preferred Jordin Sparks to sing this and for Leona Lewis to sing This Is My Now.

I just don't think recording companies know what to do with young women who prefer to sing ballads anymore.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."

Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.
