Don't wanna sound really thick, but are instrumentals meant to be just the song without lyrics? :s

Thanks

I was thinking, after tour I know she will be recording album 4, but is there any chance she could release glassheart? Like over summer as a buzz single, maybe a little radio tour in promotion of album 4 coming up and glassheart the single?

That would be great and that's what they told me, but tbh I think they're thinking: new management, new start.

No, they'll keep the songs to themselves and will talk about how awesome they are until nobody cares about Leona and her carreer.

That song has grown on me since I first heard it, but that is not the type of music I want to hear from Leona.

It's a bit too generic and I think that if they wanted to go that way they would've done it with Glassheart album.

I love it. I think she'd sound great singing a summer anthem like that

I'm not so worried about the quality of this album. I wouldn't mind if it was nothing but generic hits which in Leona's case would be refreshing. Face it, without a generic song or BIG uptempo I doubt she's gonna get another hit single.

Leona should work with DJ Fresh on a song like this. That singer RaVaughn has sung backing vocals on Alexandra's All Night Long and Cheryl's Fight For This Love.

I really think Leona could rock a song like that. It's uptempo and summery in sound, but still not generic and different sounding.

The only song in the US Pop radio top 50 I could hear Leona singing is Next To Me. How I wish Emeli gave her that.

Now we all have listened to Glassheart for 5 months, what is your favourite album?
For me: Echo > Glassheart > Spirit

Obviously I LOVE all.
Echo - I skip no tracks.
Glassheart - I 'sometimes' skip Shake You Up, Favourite Scar & Stop The Clocks
Spirit - I 'Sometimes' skip I'm You You & A Moment Like This.

Although Spirit & Glassheart change a lot, but I love all her albums

Isn't that what she needs to be though....Rihanna is obviously doing something right which Leona isn't...

Because Rihanna is way more how do you say... out there. She's released uptempos and ballads which have all done well. Her material is always great and radio friendly. Her personality and aura is exciting. She's charismatic. I can see why people call Leona boring, she never puts herself out there and has become so predictable with single releases. People are thinking this.. "New Leona Lewis? Ballad Ballad Ballad." She really needs to change it up. She tried with Collide and even though it was terrible and wasn't as successful as expectations, it's still the most successful single of the Glassheart Era.

An artist doesn't have to change into something she doesn't want to be. Leona's type of music is still hot, just look at Adele and Emeli Sande. Leona just needs the right singles and promotion.
She doesn't need songs where she just sings 1 line repeated all over the song with a vocal effect on it.

agree with this, i wouldn't change any of Leona's albums, l love all three especially the different mixture of songs on each on., she just needs the right single choices to get her out there.

I agree. I'm not saying Leona needs to turn into a slut, but I get the feeling that she's quite stubborn with her career and what she wants to do. I think she should try and take a few more risks because everything since Spirit has been way too safe. Glassheart has been a step in the right direction, but it's still not enough.

But that said, I still love the music, but I want Leona to be around for a while yet, but for that to happen, she needs to change a few things.

No offence, but if you think Leona needs to record songs la Rihanna, then Bye. She will NEVER record those songs you've posted.
She recorded 3 albums so far, none of them had that kind of songs. Leona doesn't even want to. She recorded 3 years for GH with full control over which songs she wants to record. Yet again, no songs like you've posted.

Yes, she has to step it up but not with the music because the music is there. Glassheart, Come Alive, Shake You Up, Sugar. She needs the right single choice and promotion and that's it.
But she certainly doesn't have to record songs that uses autotune all over the place.

Exactly! I love the girl to death but the people lack interest because she hasn't done anything or put out anything exiciting
