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.
