LEONA LEWIS wants everyone to know that her own recording of "We Found Love" before RIHANNA's version is better.
Now that we’d like to hear…
Leona Lewis made quite an odd revelation to entertainment news recently, saying that she actually recorded "We Found Love" with songwriter-producer Calvin Harris before Rihanna released her own chart-topping version with a matching music video last year.
The British “We Found Love” singer revealed to the Daily Star:
"I worked with Calvin and we recorded 'We Found Love.' But he went touring with Rihanna and she ended up releasing it."
Leona also admitted that she regrets not believing in the song, saying:
"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."
Leona also believes that her version would've been a bigger hit, proudly admitting:
"It was the same version and production but mine's better."
But will we get to hear it anytime soon? Lewis said:
"I still have the recording but I'd never leak it. That's so unprofessional."
As for the track's massive success as Rihanna's song, Lewis admitted:
"It was a bit annoying to see how big a hit it was around the world, but if I'd released it maybe it wouldn't have done as well."
Okay Leona, why make such statements if you're not prepared to let us give it a listen?
What can you say about Leona's revelation?
