Forget Radiohead dropping new songs left, right and center, the real delight comes when songs begin to leak from some of the years most anticipated pop albums. You can almost hear Simon Cowell’s hands wringing around some poor studio assistant’s neck. In two years, Leona Lewis has gone from ‘receptionist with a dream’ to one of the world’s biggest superstars, selling records in every major territory (nice), despite being about as charismatic as Kate Thornton.
This new ditty is called ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ and features Justin Timberlake and the production skills of a certain Mr Timbaland:
It’s not exactly ‘Maneater’, but what did you expect. It’s good to see that Leona’s gone a bit street, starting a song with “fucking around”. Oh, “fork in the road”, that makes more sense.
