Leona Lewis Debuts Empowering New Single ‘Thunder’ & Throws Shade At Simon Cowell In ‘I Am’

I fear that Leona Lewis might never recapture the glory of her “Bleeding Love” days. The lead cut “Fire Under My Feet” off her latest album, I Am, faltered in her native UK, peaking at only No. 51. I actually quite liked it and thought it’d at least break the Top 20. Are people just over Lewis?

The 30-year-old chanteuse officially releases “Thunder” as the second official UK release and the first US single. The soaring and stomping track is all about empowerment. It’s solid, but I much prefer “Fire Under My Feet.”

Speaking of empowerment, another track has leaked from her forthcoming album. It’s the title track and it feels like it’s somewhat of a dig at her former mentor Simon Cowell. It could very well be about an ex, but it’s far more salacious if it’s shade directed towards The X Factor judge. Give “I Am” and “Thunder” a listen below.

    she fell out of the spotlight and lacks good promotion.

    “i am” would be a good credits track for a movie, love it
