She also released a new album, but I’m sure both of those facts are about equally as interesting.
What actually is interesting, however, is this little quote from her album signing:
“I worked with Calvin [Harris] and we recorded ‘We Found Love.’ But he went touring with Rihanna and she ended up releasing it. I didn’t commit to it because I wanted ‘Trouble’ to be my first single so I think that was another reason they went with Rihanna. It was the same version and production but mine’s better.”
Let’s get the obvious out of the way: Bitch is BANGIN on this cover. ::sweat::
As for the song…I’m medium. I’m over all these hoes putting out music for gay clubs. That electro whine in the instrumental is like a cheese grater on my soul and I’m done. DONE. If these tramps wanna cash in on them gay dollars (cause homos will buy anything made by a pretty girl in a flashy outfit) can we get more songs like “Feel Ur Beat” and less euro-dance-faggotry a la everything Red One shits out his Moroccan gayhole.
That said, Leona can really do no wrong in my eyes so I don’t hate the song. She didn’t oversing it and it really kind of picks up steam toward the middle and I got my jam on a little. But apparently she stole the track.
Leona put down the vocal for it before her label got the green light from the original creator and his label, DJ Avicii and Ministry of Sound. Leona’s manager, the illustrious and oh-so-scrupulous Simon Cowell, got denied use of it because Ministry wanted that track to be used as DJ Avicii’s next single. SyCo (Cowell’s label) is like “tough, I want it, this is hot.” And now it’s Leona’s single.
I personally feel bad for the girl because you know she probably had no idea her label was being crusty behind her back and now haters will be all over the blogs talmbout how much they hate her.
But on another note…on what planet is this track hot enough to go to war over? It’s not even hot, barely lukewarm, and you wanna potentially get the best vocalist on your label blasted by the music press for stealing a song? Shame on you, Simon.
The American reboot of the X-Factor can only hope to produce a performance this fantastic. I mean…she hit that modulation and the roof flew off the concert hall. I was so excited for her…and then she put out those two medium-ass albums that nobody really cared about. ::sadface::
If her career was as bright as this moment, maybe there’d be more of her videos playing at the gay bars and less of Lady Gaga prancing around naked shaking her little chicken cutlet tiddies all over creation.
