Leona Lewis has shared a stunning cover of Kanye West’s ‘Only One’.
Speaking on Facebook, Leona says,
“I was quite moved by Kanye West speech at the VMA’s as it takes courage to admit mistakes and stand up for artists. In light of this, I would like to share this with you…”
Leona releases her new album ‘I Am’ on September 11th through Island Records.
The album includes a beautiful and touching dedication to Leona’s parents on the track ‘Thank You’. “Your parents never stop being your parents and I’ve had many a sleepless night being like ‘I just need someone to talk to’ and my parents have always been there. I remember one time I texted my dad saying ‘I don’t want to be an adult anymore’ and he was like, “Sorry love! You are!’. They’ve supported me, especially over the last couple of years but also when I was growing up there was a lot of sacrifice, so that song is dedicated to them.” Elsewhere on the album, standout track, ‘Another Love Song’ is a playful departure from the classic Lewis ballads, with a garage vibe and uptempo beat, it’s easy to imagine it pounding out on the dance floors across Ibiza this summer.
