We guess that she wants a new sound to go with that new look!

Leona Lewis is hard at work on her third album, and is reportedly looking to move past her signature ballads, and record more dubstep and club-friendly songs!

A source explains:

"Simon Cowell's Syco team have asked songwriters to hand them dubstep and dance tracks with traditional lyrics for the X Factor winner. And they’ve specifically stated 'no ballads.'"

Wow! Pretty bold move!

We just hope that even though she wants to expand upon the aesthetic of her sound, she still can showcase that powerhouse voice of hers! We wouldn't want to see that compromised!

What do U think?? Are U excited for the direction Leona is taking her new album??

    She has a great voice - her new sound has to be better than her new look, which is not good.



  2. 2

    What's wrong with her make-up? Somebody got a little crazy with the blush!



  3. 3

    Did she fall in her make up bag on that morning??? Bloody awful



  4. 4

    She looks like crap. Weird what fame and money could do to people..



  5. 5

    I'm excited but didn't they say that last time that her 2nd album would be more dance-pop oriented and was working with all sorts of pop producers like timbaland and justin timberlake etc? I'll believe it when I see it!

    whats goin on with her makeup? chick looks like the ultimate warrior.



  7. 7

    Love her music.



  8. 8

    I liked her ballads. I don't care for the dance crap.



  9. 9

    Who?



  10. 10

    i knew britney will make it the new it sound
    she did it with pop then electropop then synthpop and now dubstep

    queen



  11. 11

    She should concentrate on getting a make up artist



  12. 12

    She's too commercial to make it that genre.



  13. 13

    WOW! Worst make-up job ever! It looks like the cheeks of a white person were glued on to her face. I'm not even gonna coment on that green thing she is wearing.



  14. 14

    Cant wait for new leona!!!



  15. 15

    over and irrelevant



  16. 16

    what the fuck is on her face?????????



  17. 17

    Re: BritneyLand – Ummm…Britney didn't make any of that trend, David Bowie was the first person to bring in Synth Pop and Electropop to the industry, followed by Madonna. Most of Britney's hits are just pop, not dance-pop or electro-pop with maybe 1 or 2 exceptions with Toxic and Break the Ice. But Dance pop and electronica made a comeback in 2008 with Lady Gaga's "The Fame" record, and it's follow up "Monster" album. I really do love Britney and always have been a major fan since I was little but she didn't start any of this.

    No Simon NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
    Stay away from Dubstep!!!!? Just leave it alone before you ruin it! D:



  19. 19

    Is that a man?



  20. 20

    Re: Valentina – her album blackout is what made it popular the electonic sound.



  21. 21

    i used to like her now she just looks like a slag.



  22. 22

    what the fuck is up with her face? Stop dressing like a hooker leona, you arent hot enough to pull it off.



  23. 23

    who ever did her makeup that day should be slapped!



  24. 24

    She had a great look and great album before. I don't know why she has to change anything.



  25. 25

    wtf is wrong with her face? she looks like a 5 year old with play makeup on? her blush or whatever that is, is like WAY too light and piled on.



  26. 26

    Wow… she is a BEAUTIFUL girl but her make up job in this picture is horrible.. as is her hair. She was MUCH more beautiful before… and natural looking.



  27. 27

    What the hell is wrong with her makeup? that's the kind of makeup a cheap hooker would wear… -.-'



  28. 28

    you getting dubstep confused again, Perez. Just like when you said DAFT PUNK is doing "dubstep"? bahaha



  29. 29

    what's wrong with her. she's been looking weird recently.



  30. 30

    Who in the fuck is this tranny? And why do you keep talking about it?



  31. 31

    LOLOLOL@ #6 and the Ultimate Warrior comment! I signed in just to comment on her wacky makeup.



  32. 32

    Hate the new direction! The reason I loved Leona was her ballads and voice. How many girls are out there doing the same thing? I understand the need for uptempo songs but to completely rule out ballads is stupid.

    Is this a cast off from RuPaul's Drag Race? Don't know him.



  34. 34

    Lets see Madonna has been the most famous female artist on the planet since 1983 and this is the first time we've heard this? I'm calling bullshit and just yet another attempt for Perez to make GaGa look better. Ironic that every major media outlet covered the Express Yourself/Born this Way contraversy except for Perez.



  35. 35

    If Leona is going in the direction of "Outta My Head" from her 'Echo' album then I'm all for it…I freaking LOVE that song! However, I think removing any trace of ballads from her next album would be a mistake. I understand that she wants to be a little more commercial, but to totally eschew from the thing she is good at and, mind you, made her famous, is not a good idea. It would totally alienate a percentage of her fanbase. It's okay to change and try new things, but it seems like she's doing a complete 180.



  36. 36

    isn't true dubstep characterized by minimal vocals? so kind of an odd genre for a vocalist to choose?

    please correct me if i am mistaken, anyone out there with more music knowledge than me.

    and yes, her look…..hair, makeup, clothing…..is god awful.



  37. 37

    wow - she's drop dead gorgeous!



  38. 38

    EW….



  39. 39

    gawd. she used to look so beautiful but now she just look like crap.. and what's with the outfit? first off, she doesn't have the body type to pull anything like this off.. urgh.. and even if she does, i doubt the green whatever that is she's wearing in this pic can be forgiven.. go get urself a stylist and a make-up artist girl before u start on your new track.. lols



  40. 40

    Re: jp1988 – That is so true, lol



  41. 41

    Would you PLEASE… do your research before you start throwing words like dubstep around.. not every fucking singer who has some sort of a beat in their songs makes dubstep !
    if you want to actually hear REAL dubstep watch Katy B-on a mission on YouTube!

    wtf is with her make up?



  43. 43

    I LOVE LEONA LEWIS!!!!! BOTH ALBUMS, ALTHOUGH I LOVED ECHO!!!!!! I HOPE THE NEW SOUND WORKS, HER MORE UPBEAT SONG'S ARE GOOD, AND REMIX'S! I'M SURE IT WILL TURN OUT GREAT!!!!



  44. 44

    not sure her voice will fit dubstep…
