Leona Lewis Leaves The Ballads Behind With “Collide”
Switching it up ’cause everyone wants to dance nowadays, Leona Lewis abandons her signature ballad style for an electro pop look on her new single, “Collide.”
Producer Sandy Vee incorporates a sample from Swedish DJ Avicii‘s “Penguin” to create a fresh-sounding, chart-friendly hit for Leona showcasing her powerhouse voice and introducing us to a lighter, youthful side of her character.
