‘Happy’, the lead single from singing sensation Leona Lewis’ sophomore effort ‘Echo’ (due November), officially premiered today. Produced by Ryan Tedder, the power ballad plays to the star’s biggest asset – her undeniably remarkable voice, with Lewis turning in a stellar vocal performance. That said, I can’t say this one is exciting me much at all. I’m still hopeful the album serves up the good good, but this seems like at best ‘a grower’. Still, with the major promotional machine her success-to-date grants her, I’m sure this one will be a hit. Whether it genuinely deserves to be is definitely up for debate.
Hit or Miss?
