The long-awaited new single from X-Factor winner Leona Lewis, ‘Bleeding Love’, premiered yesterday on BBC Radio One. Hailed as one the the most talented singers to emerge from the UK in a long while, it is hoped that Leona can achieve the heights of success enjoyed by those she is most often likened to – Whitney and Mariah. However, judging by this track, she’s gonna have to come a bit harder. ‘Bleeding Love’, with it’s 90′s synth-pop vibe, sounds slightly dated and seems to rely heavily on the formula set by the Mariah’s & co before her. Still, the track has ‘grower’ potential and is mainstream enough to appeal to the masses. Leona’s currently untitled album will hit stores here in the UK on November 5th and the US in February 2008.
