Leona Louise Lewis (born 3 April 1985) is a British singer and songwriter. Lewis first came to prominence in 2006 when she won the third series of the British television series The X Factor. A multi-platinum selling artist and three-time Grammy Award nominee, her most successful single, "Bleeding Love", reached number one in over thirty countries around the world, and was the best-selling single worldwide in 2008. She was proclaimed 'Top New Artist' by Billboard magazine in 2008. Lewis has released two albums to date, Spirit and Echo, in 2007 and 2009 respectively. Spirit became the fastest-selling debut album and the biggest seller of 2007 in both the UK and Ireland, and made Lewis the first British solo artist to top the US Billboard 200 with a debut album. The fourth best-selling artist worldwide in 2008, Spirit has sold over 6.5 million copies worldwide.
In November 2008 Lewis set a record in the UK for the fastest selling download-only release with her cover version of the Snow Patrol song, "Run", which sold 69,244 copies in two days. Lewis's debut tour, The Labyrinth, took place in 2010. Lewis's third album, Glassheart, will be released in late 2012. It was preceded by "Collide", a single from the album, which became her seventh top-five hit in the United Kingdom.

OMG Leona Flawless.

I can listen to her anytime. All her songs rock.

These songs have a special place in my heart though: Bleeding Love, Run, My Hands, Alive, Stop Crying Your Heart Out and Outta My Head.

I can't wait for Glassheart <3333 She's soooooo flawleeeesssss <3

There was a Leona thread already, but that one's more than a year old, I think. :p Kudos for making a new one. :D

I love Leona and all her music and have been a big fan since she won X-Factor. Leona FTW! :hug: I'm not too fond of Collide and her Hurt EP, but hopefully her new album will make up for it. :D

No words can describe how ****ing pissed I was when I heard that she delayed her album until November. -_- She, her record label or whoever can come up with all the excuses they want, but we all know it's so she can just promote the album at this year's X-Factor. So cheap. :rolleyes:

But anyway, on to Leona favorites. :mis:

She's got a good voice, I like her, but she is kinda dull and I still can't get over the comparisons to her and Whitney houston back in the X Factor days even though Leona's voice couldn't touch it. :rolleyes:

Ok, over the past month and a half, I've been obsessed with this woman. I am now a big fan of her music. I have both of her albums and her new EP and I am eagerly anticipating her 3rd album which is expected sometime this year (after many delays). :pi:

I don't even remember how many times I replayed it.

I'm not a huge fan of the EP, tbh.

However, I get nostalgia from listening to her, because I remember I used to love and obsess over Bleeding Of Love, Best You Never Had, Better In Time and A Moment Like This. It was also when my life was somewhat decent, too. ;_;

I kinda liked it when she felt like doing something wild, hip, and crazy and recorded Outta My Head.

Otherwise I'm not really into the 'heartbreak R&B piano ballad' genre, sorry.

Weemanply109
30-04-12, 02:41
That's one of my favourite tracks from her 2nd album.

Love Letters is my favourite all time Leona track right now though.

The only songs i heard from her were bleeding love, better in time, and happy.

30-04-12, 14:15
I like all of Leona's songs. I can't choose a one I dislike.

She has to release the third album as fast as possible, I don't want her tu rush the release but I really want her to show all the basic bitches who actually got a real talent :ohn: It's time for a Godlena comeback :jmp:

I wouldn't even know you were referencing Leona if I wasn't a fan and I just stumbled upon this page. :p

People should really stop putting the word "God" in front of the names of mediocre artists. The only one that works is clearly Beysus.

So true, it's kinda annoying. I was just helping a dude out. :o

Beyoncé? Please, no.

Two of the bests vocalists right now are collaborating!

Adele and Leona Lewis!

Adele and Leona Lewis are two of the most recognised living female artists in the world of music today. All there records are sold on the basis of one Key Element their voice. They have already represented the United Kingdom throughout the globe with their respective hit singles and albums, along with their touring abilities. It is the Olympic Committee's duty to bring the best live performances for the opening show, and these two incredibly gifted and talented individuals will bring an essence of class and serenity to the show. They are both from working class backgrounds and have worked their way up in the industry. Opening the ceremony will be a huge honour for both. Both singers will sing two select songs each, and will come together to sing a duet, which will become an official Olympic anthem. We as a nation should be incredibly proud of these two artists.

Adele is undeniably talented, with a great voice and I LOVE Leona.

Lol, I loooove 'Forgive Me'.

Leona debuted a new track live at Hackney Weekend.

Track is titled 'Come Alive':

She also covered 'Coming Home':

Can't believe I'm saying this but her cover of Coming Home is awful :/

It's hard to nail a song on such a godly level as Coming Home but I think it's her voice in general, is it just me or it's not as strong as it used to be?

I remember when she sang these humanly impossible notes to reach, yet she struggles at every single note now.

^ Wow, I stopped following Leona for some time because I was tired of waiting for Glass Heart. I'm glad she's still working on the album.

LoveBirds > the rest of her songs tbh. It's perfect.

The producer of Glass Heart also uploaded this instrumental:

Godona Lewis, tbh.

So it has finally arrived, after so many years - Leona released her third album Glassheart (both standard and deluxe) few days ago.

I don't have the album yet but I've listened to the previews and the title track - Glassheart is definitely the best song on the album. It's strangely reminiscent of RiRi's Where Have You Been but I love Leona's take on this particular genre! :D The first single off this record is apparently Trouble which sounds dull and boring imo.
