*The Leona Lewis fans thread* - 'I Am' 2015

Singer's version of 'Run' is not available to buy as a single

Leona Lewis could have missed out on a hit single after her record company Sony decided not to release her cover version of Snow Patrol's 'Run'.

The singer was set to release the song after performing it on Saturday's (November 15) edition of 'The X Factor'.

However, her record label, Sony, shelved the release plan after paying for a video to accompany the song.

According to The Sun, one of the theories behind the label scrapping the release is that Sony bosses wanted fans to spend more money and buy the new edition of her album 'Spirit', which was due out Monday (November 17) - and has the track included as an extra.

A source is quoted as saying: "If that's the case, the Leona camp will be furious. Given the choice of a single or a double Number One I know what they would have preferred.

"It's an absolute cock-up. It was due out as a download and would have walked to Number One."

This isn't the first time Leona has suffered a supposed release mishap - earlier this month the download version of her track 'Forgive Me' was released a day after efforts from rivals including and Britney Spears.

A spokesman for Leona Lewis refuted the newspaper's source's claims, saying, "'Run' has never been scheduled for release as a single. It is available on the new edition of 'Spirit', in stores now and digitally from December 1."

The track has received significant radio airplay in the UK, and has featured in several airplay related charts.

Re: Leona Lewis robbed of Number One single by own record company?

They should release it closer to Xmas, and it'll go to #1

Prefer Snow Patrol's version myself but I can't believe how greedy her record company have been.

Re: Leona Lewis robbed of Number One single by own record company?

It's actually turning out to be a smart move by the record company, as people are rushing out to buy the deluxe edition of the album instead [it's #1 in the mid-weeks, ahead of Dido].

Still, I think they should've released it as a single to maximise sales.

Re: Leona Lewis robbed of Number One single by own record company?

That's just a smart business move by the record company. I'm confused having some big single not released is such a horrible thing when it's out on her "special" album anyway. Otherwise way less people would buy the album.

Re: Leona Lewis robbed of Number One single by own record company?

I'd have thought that most of the people that were going to buy her album would have done so by now.

Still, singles are meant to promote an album.

It makes sense to me to release this song as a single - that maximises the album's publicity in the run up to Christmas.

Though if it's getting airplay anyway, I suppose that's less necessary.

Do you not think shes earned Sony enough money this past year? She's worked tirelessly all year to promote the album, flying all over the world, so many live performances. Run would be a guaranteed number 1... I think they owe her that at least. Not to mention they've already paid for and shot a video for it! Heres the live performace she gave last Saturday http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=ovGFPKZ3lgM

Re: Leona Lewis robbed of Number One single by own record company?

But didn't she already release a song two weeks earlier that went in at #5? It was the battle of the divas and she finished third (Beyoncé was #2 and Britney was #4).

Why the hell release another song two weeks later
