Leona Lewis is the UK's third female pop act ever to top the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and she did so in 2007 with international smash hit Bleeding Love. Subsequent singles off Lewis' debut effort Spirit didn't fare as well, although her cover of Snow Patrol's Run remains one of my favourite tracks of all time.

A new track from the X-Factor winner has just surfaced and it is titled I Got You. It is written and produced by Swedish pop god Max Martin, whose other recent works Friday I'll Be Over U (Allison Iraheta) and 3 (Britney Spears) were featured on my blog recently. This track is pure pop gold and in my opinion, much more solid than Bleeding Love and current single Happy. It is distinctly Lewis with its delicate femininity, but its organic rock elements in ways make it like a ladies' version of With or Without You (U2). Yes, it's that good.

Lewis' sophomore release Echo will be released via Sony/BMG November 16, 2009 in the UK and the following day in North America.

Give I Got You by Leona Lewis a full listen below:


  1. She looks gorgeous and i can't wait for the Album (and your final review!) :)

  2. Yes, I'm looking forward to it. Shouldn't be too long! I think it's out the same day as Shakira.
