Leona Lewis: 'We Found Love' Was Originally Mine, Not Rihanna's

Leona Lewis: 'We Found Love' Was Originally Mine, Not Rihanna's

Leona Lewis rocks a high ponytail as she meets fans and signs copies of her album Glassheart at HMV on Monday (October 15) in London, England.

The 27-year-old entertainer recently made claims that she actually recorded Rihanna‘s hit “We Found Love” before the Barbados born singer.

“I worked with Calvin [Harris] and we recorded ‘We Found Love.’ But he went touring with Rihanna and she ended up releasing it,” Leona told the Daily Star. “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.”

    Vocally hers may be better, but I bet Rihanna’s version has more soul. We know that charisma is very important in an artist. Look at Madonna.

    what is the point of saying comments like this, especially saying that yours was better. if yours was better, than why did they release Rihannas? This just makes her look desperate for attention. let it go

    “but mine’s better.” Geez, she’s pathetic. And like anyone cares after Rihanna’s version became her biggest hit since Umbrella. Also, let’s get real: would Leona Lewis’ version have even received any attention? She’s been acting so weird lately, probably gonna have a breakdown or something.

    I LOVE Leona and had an instant crush on her the minute I saw her. She is too talented to be petty! I mean, she is a great singer but just because you have a good vocal doesn’t make the song. I don’t think the song would have been right for her but that’s just me. Pleas Leona don’t stoop down to the diva level! Way too talented for all of that…

    Also, Rihannas video for that song was amazing and I doubt Leona could do anything close to that

    Leona’s voice is far better than Rihanna’s, but honestly I don’t think it would have been as big a hit if she’d released it. While Rihanna may pale in comparison in terms of musical talent, I’d venture to say she’s the better entertainer.

    i love Leona! No doubt she has more talent. Rihanna is the definition that “sex sells” all she does is promote drugs & sex. We’ll see how long her career will last. Not long I bet.

    7 years and going strong <3

    KissThis Says:

    I’m sure Leona’s version IS better than Rihanna’s. Leona can actually sing. But, Leona should have probably left out the part where she thinks her’s is better. Makes her sound like a b!tch.

    This is a serious question, did she get her nose done? it looks different!
