Leona Lewis is officially back in the game!
Following the release of her 2013 holiday-themed LP Christmas, With Love and 2012’s underrated Glassheart, Leona has decided to say goodbye to Sony’s Syco Music – her label home since winning The X Factor UK in 2007 – and at last launch a legit comeback with her new label, Island Records.
Today she drops “Fire Under My Feet,” her first real single in three years and the lead track from her fifth studio album, I Am. The song, produced by Toby Gad, is a fiery bluesy-soul anthem packed with pounding drums, sweet vocal harmonies, and an inspiring tale of liberation. “I got fire under my feet/ And I feel it in my heartbeat/ You can’t put out these flames/ You can’t keep me down in my seat,” she declares above the marching drum beat. “I got fire under my feet /And I feel it in my heartbeat/ You can get out of this place, if you can’t take the heat.”
In today’s musical landscape where sonically similar anthems like Adele‘s “Rumor Has It” and OneRepublic‘s “Love Runs Out” can successfully climb to the top, there’s no reason why Leona‘s “Fire Under My Feet” can’t do the same. This is the best we’ve heard her vocally, sonically, and lyrically.
I SAY LIVE LEONA!!!
Leona Lewis will release “Fire Under My Feet” on June 6th in the UK!
