It sounds o.k. :D, 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.

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 :p. 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.

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.

The original is always best that is why Leona is no match for Mariah Carey. She doesn't have the unique qualities. She is good but, a good copy.

I don't think she sounds anything like Mariah, wow they both have range that's about it really.

Mariah's voice is finished, she used to possess one of the best voices in the industry but listening to her new stuff and her recent performances it is now a shadow of its former self.

Here's one of the reviews of the video:

"MiMi probably spat out a delicious snack when watching this music video in her command center. It was all laughs and giggles until Leona mounted that carousel in the clouds, then it became SERIOUS SHIT. It's like a lay down, by mounting that beautiful carousel of unicorns up in the sky, Leona slapped Mimi with her leather glove. Moomi is gathering the butterflies she has trapped over the years in a giant jar with her magical powers to assault Leona and her pony army."

The video isnt great, quite cheap looking. The songs ok, she has better ones on her album though.

I actually don't like it much. :shrug: and yeah, I agree with CONOR that she has better songs than this.:)
BTW, isn't this song a bonus track in the US version of CD?:scratch: The original one doesn't have this, right?
