Leona Lewis has revealed that she originally recorded We Found Love the song that went on to become a massive hit for Rihanna.
“I worked with Calvin and we recorded We Found Love. But he went touring with Rihanna and she ended up releasing it,” Leona revealed.
“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,” she continued. “It was the same version and production but mine’s better.”
“I still have the recording but I’d never leak it,” she added. “That’s so unprofessional.”
But going to the press about it isn’t?
We Found Love is one of the biggest singles of all time having sold 6.5 million copies and hitting number 1 in 25 countries and Leona admits her version may not have done as well.
“There are so many songs I’ve recorded, only to hear other people singing them. It happens all the time.
“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,” she added.
You know “someone” is about to leak that song.
