And to think that a song that ended up being such a WORLDWIDE SMASH could have gone to someone else entirely! Rihanna garnered some serious success with … Read more…
your so fucking up rihannas ass.. shes an idiot and leonas version WOULD have been better because the song is a hit song & she can actually sing 10x better than rihanna.. rihannas only knows how to be a slut
That's exactly why I hate pop. How about "artists" actually start writing their own songs?!
of course! leona's the better singer.
She could have just leaked it and pretend it wasn't her who leaked the track. Come on Leona, you said your version was "Better" so why not share it to us? LOL
I would love to hear her version - I wouldn't doubt it is better because she has a much better voice.
Leona is way better than Rihanna (VOCALLY BETTER). Nuff said. But I would love to hear her version of we found love, and I saw Calvin Harris tweeted about it that he was listening to Leona's version of We Found Love. WANNA HEAR IT SO FREAKIN BAD!
LL just never took off did she? She is the best singer of her generation, that no one cares about.
whether leona recorded we found love first, i doubt it if that would be a worldwide hit. compared to rihrih who is famous to diff parts of the world. so i don't care about her version. it's so stupid that she is now claiming that she recorded it first now that the song was a huge success. so what does she wants? UGH the nerve of some FLOP ARTISTS!!!
RELEASE IT, LEONA!!! I'm sure it sounds better anyway…
If Leona version was better than it would have dropped nd been her song not Rihannas. If she sound better than Clavin would have went with her but he didnt so stfu nd stop hatin on Rihanna
That's what happens when you don't freaking write your own songs.
yup shes right. it probably wouldn't have done as well.
Now she not only sounds unprofessional but cleary like a jalous bitch who cant commit to a decision to save her life
Uhhhh she writes most of her own music, it's just that Calvin Harris wanted to see what her voice would be like on his track…it's called a collaboration. And Leona is VERY successful in the UK and around the world. She had an amazing track with Afrojack, and her music is much deeper than Rihanna's. Although i'm not the biggest fan of her new song "Trouble", Leona's vocals KILL most people's. Her range is spectacular…On the other hand…I love Rihanna.
Perez, you're starting beef for nothing. I'm pretty sure what she meant was that if she had released it, HER version might not have done as well. Read the quote again.
…..she can sing better than Riri but the song wouldn't have been the big hit it is like with Rihanna…..guess we know now who has the real X Factor…..smiles…
Re: Ciera – ..yep, she can sing better but rihanna has the real X Factor…
Leona's would've sucked balls. Big fat hairy ginger ones.
Wow, how catty of Leona. She said her's is better but it would be unprofessional to release it?? No hun, what's unprofessional is you bringing it up and say yours was better in the first palce. She's jealous of Rihanna. Grow up.
I love we found love by riri but when she sings it Live she sounds like a dying cat im sure Leonas would sound much better cus her amazing vocals
I want to hear Leona's version!
Re: canadianposse – leona is not that successful in the uk at all and she is no way near as successful as rihanna is, im from the uk and sorry but no-one really cared about ll since bleeding love .
Yeaah i agree leona would have sounded better, and probably not have had as much sex in it.. and leona does sound better although her version probably not hve done taht well
Leona >>>> Rihanna. Nuff said.
Pretty sure Leona would have sang it better Rihanna gets most of her fame for dancing around half naked Leona is pure talent honestly i want to here leonas version
No doubt Leona sang it better, she is a great vocalist, unlike Rihanna who has the whiniest voice out there. I went to her concert once and that was a total waste of time and money, she cannot sing live to save her life.
Sour grapes? She did say her version probably wouldn't have been as successful. It's no big secret that all these hits these singers sing get passed around from singer to singer. Some record their versions of it only to see it never released, while others turn some of them down.
LMAO! Bitch please! It was tailored to fit Rihanna's voice! We know you're pressed Leona! Calvin probably had her sing the demo, LOL, but make no mistake, it was WRITTEN FOR RIHANNA. Even the execs at Def Jam as well as Calvin Harris say so. Such a shame that she's bitter about missing out on a 10-week #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 that also won the coveted Video of the Year at the VMAs.
I couldn't picture Leona singing it. Her voice is too shaky (going by her past work) to put forth a straightforward tone with various rapid pitch changes as Rihanna can pull off.
Hahahaha you're wrong girl! Echo was number 1 on the charts of its first week of release which was after Bleeding Love… You were just obviously living in a cave… Re: chiqinay100 –
I am not a fan of Rihanna and I didn't buy the song, if Leona had released her version I definitely would have bought it!
I don't think she was being sour. She said if she'd have released it probably wouldn't have been a big a hit. I really don't think Rhianna has the pipes. Yeah she has some catchy songs but in comparison I'd rather Leona sing me a song. But it's like Brittney Spears, her stuff is catchy and she's a good dancer but she doesn't have the pipes.
This is all prob a marketing ploy to get us all excited about the LL version. EVERY THING you see and hear is a marketing ploy for SOMETHING. On another note, what is up with RiRis in this picture? She looks weird. Girl used to be beautiful, now just friggin weird looking, and not in a good way.
i think leona means she isnt as popular as rihanna so not as many people would of heard the song so yeah
P.S i like rihanna better even f leona has a stronger voice
Hands down Leona wins in the vocal department. However, as great as a singer Leona is her voice is only suited for one type of music and that's generally ballads. There's only a few great singers that are capable of blending in well with other genres of music. I have Leona's first album and all the ballads are great, then you get to the more up tempo ones and it's kind of like the music is moving but she just can't catch up. So, like everyone I'm curious to know how her version sounds, but would it be better? Idk
she would have just yodeled through the song!
Re: chiqinay100 – I am aslo from the Uk, and I call you out on your bullshit. Everyone loves Leona, she is about the only one apart from Adele that is flying the British flag. She has sold 20 million records, for a British artist going international that is huge.
I could've seen Leona instead of Rihanna perform with Calvin Harris at Coachella Fest -_-
This is exactly why Rihanna is more successful than Leona. I bet Ri heard the song and jump right on it. This song was 100% on brand for Rihanna. Clearly Leona made a poor business choice. If she had it first, she should have moved. When I think of this song and the visuals for the video, it was perfect for the saga that is Ri and Chris. It seems as that this song came right out of Rihanna's diary. That is why her fans connected. If you didn't know any better it would seem as though she wrote it, or that it was written exclusively for her. We all know better vocals do not equal a hit! With Rihanna there is a story. There may very well be one with Leona, i just don't know what it is. I feel like I know Rihanna, but have no clue who Leona really is. I am 100% sure I would have liked Leona's version. However, it would not have been as believable as Ri. I have nothing to connect LL's version to. Rihanna on the other hand, it was like art imitating life. That is what most people look for in an ARTist! Even though she may sound like cat live, as some have said. Ri believes in what she is singing! You can see the honesty in her delivery of it. THAT IS WHY SHE IS WINNING!
I'm very glad that the song ended up being released by Rihanna and it's not even so much about the song itself. I think the song just became this massive hit because the incredibly genius music video made the song. I highly doubt Leona would have shot such music video if the song would have been released by her.
It was the shade heard around the world!
Nicki Minaj accepted her award for Best Hip Hop video at Sunday's MTV VMAs, only to epically call out the host, Miley Cyrus!
If you don't remember, the pop songstress put Nicki on blast in a recent interview saying, "What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It's not very polite."

And as we all saw, the Anaconda rapper didn't let her feelings go unknown!
Things then got a little awkward when Miley tried to continue with the show, but not without responding to Nicki!
So was it a planned skit or did these ladies really just go off??
