It sounds o.k. , nice up-tempo. Her voice in this song sounds a lot like Toni Braxton's, though.

Her voice annoys me and it always has. I wish she'd drop the octave a tad, because she sounds a bit hysterical when she goes into the whustle register. I've always disliked the vocal styling that Mariah Carey brought into music, that ridiculous soprano register.

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
I know I don't fit in that much
But I'm yours

I like it. This is the kind of song she should have had more of on Spirit.

Will be a hit in America. Formats very well with soft rock and pop.
I can also see the chorus being in a few backgrounds of some commercials.

Jordin Sparks has to be be on alert. There's not enough room for two big divas in pop/soft rock.
Her next single will be important.

Why listen if her voice annoys you . She does have a number of bad vocal habits though granted.

I would agree with the Jordin Sparks thing. Leona's voice is > Jordin's, but not hugely. I think Leona's star power is >>>>>Jordin's though.

Given that I feel this song is awful

^^^^I dont think either one of them have star power. Leona is just boring, and Jordin is normal teenager girl who. Nothing about them sticks out besides their voice which isnt a bad thing.

Re: Leona Lewis ~ Forgive Me - New Song what do you think???

Leona has a really good voice, but she needs to get her own style. In her songs, she copies Mariah Carey, and sometimes even Christina Aguilera (who also copies Mariah's singing style). The talent is there, but as mirzalover said, Leona at the moment comes off as boring and unoriginal.
