I wouldn't read into that. The One Direction song is about being with somebody who lifts them up, that nobody can drag them down as long as they have that person by their side.

Leona's songs are...

She was probably nervous being back on American TV for the first time in years so I'm not surprised if she was a little tense.

Her voice sounds amazing. Very very strong. Shame that it was a shortened version but I remember Leona singing bleeding love back in 2008, a lot of the time they took the 2nd verse and chorus out and...

The rap version elevated the song to the next level. I love Taylor and I like the original Bad Blood but the verses felt a bit too "high school drama". Kendrick's input turned the song into a real...

It's not so much the empowerment that is bothering me. It's just Thunder and FUMF are very similar, vocally and even the instruments used are very similar if not the same. It's just Thunder is...

I think for me, other than it feeling a bit messy, the theme of the song is pretty much exactly the same as Fire Under My Feet, being down and coming back with the thunder/being down and coming back...

I can't seem to get into Thunder. I've listened to it maybe 3 times and that's it. This is a first for me, not really sure why because I do think it's a solid song and has a catchy chorus but I just...

After a few listens I agree with those saying its a good song but I'm not sure it's going to be a hit. It's the kind of song you release as a third single or second at a push, I just don't think it's...

From Stone Hearts And Hand Grenades - "There's a lot of strength in weakness, there's a lot of truth in lies". It's such a true lyric.

It takes a lot longer for songs to become hits in the US though doesn't it? Unless you're an established megastar like Taylor Swift.
I imagine Leona will have to do lots of steady promotion for a...

I really rate Glassheart. I think it's her most personal album (before I Am).
Spirit has some amazing stand out tracks but is quite bland and was very much a vocal showcase album.
Echo is amazing...

Don't know if it's been mentioned but one that always intrigues me is the disappearance of Dorothy Arnold.

I don't know if it's just me but I'm really not feeling I Am. I actually think it's the weakest snippet, doesn't seem to have much of a melody or flow to it. And the lyrics seem kinda clumsily put...

I actually thought the blue suit is the best she's looked on TV in ages! She looked younger than 30 in it I think, her hair was amazing too.

Rita seems more the type to just want maximum exposure and be a big name celebrity rather than an actual artist, so I don't think she'd be bothered about becoming more known as a "celeb" than an...

I don't think it could. If Fire Under My Feet had been a smash then maybe, but I think it would be a disaster if she released that as the second single.
