Leona Lewis Says "We Found Love" Was Originally Her Song
Leona Lewis might have a few regrets in her life. The singer made claims that she was the originally choice for Rihanna's smash hit, 'We Found Love' written by Calvin Harris. Check out what the artist said in an interview with The Daily Star explaining how the single ended up in Rihanna's lap.
Lewis told The Daily Star that she recorded the track with Harris, but never released it because she decided to go with a different lead single for her album."It was the same version and production but mine’s better," she said.There are so many songs I’ve recorded, only to hear other people singing them. It happens all the time."
While she admitted that it was frustrating to see how successful the single was for Rihanna, Lewis remained realistic:"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."
Lewis said she has a copy of her version but would never leak it because that would be "unprofessional."
