I hope Leona writes/sings about her depression and other kinds of things on this next album other than just love and heartbreak. She should make a really personal record and sing about the highs and...

It's definitely a step in the right direction! I agree with those saying it's not strong enough to be a single but this is definitely a step up from the material on Heartbreak On Hold! Great to hear...

I'm sure she worked with Toby Gad before too, back in 2010? One of the earliest Glassheart recording sessions she had I think, but the material they created never made the final cut.

My favourite song from Overcome. It was a huge mistake for Alexandra to release 4 dance tracks before a ballad. In my opinion it should have gone:

1. Bad Boys
2. The Silence
3. All Night Long
4....

Perhaps she has a sore throat or something and so chose to lip sync to some of the songs and save her voice for the more demanding songs?

I don't get the hate myself. Not many other artists do the things she does, she's a fantastic role model. Is she perfect? No. But she's still young and has grown up in an industry where any tiny...

Just read Leona's open letter to her fans on Instagram. Really surprised at her honesty throughout, especially when she says Syco threatened to make out she'd been dropped if she left! So glad she's...

She's had plenty of success this time around still. Her third album was more artistic and experimental, which I think Katy really wanted to do. I suspect her next album will head back in the...

For me, Jessie J lost something after the release of Domino. It's like she then became too focused on cracking the US and made songs with that as her main goal, where as her first album was...

I can't see Glow being #1 or #2. I think it might hit the top 5 based on the success of Ghost, but it's very weak I think. I prefer Missed to Glow.

I think the public have moved on though. Big singing diva's in long dresses singing ballads just isn't a "cool" or current thing anymore. Leona is the only real UK artist that has that diva-ish edge...

Listened to it twice and still hasn't grown on me. Ghost hit me instantly and I loved it but Glow seems like it should just be an album track.

I wouldn't say Could You Be Loved was awful, it was just ok from that video but I don't think Leona's voice suits reggae as much as she thinks. I've never really been keen on Man Down either, I think...

I like the set list, it's nice that she's added Favourite Scar and at least she's trying new covers...
