Leona Lewis On Syco Split: “It Wasn’t A Difficult Decision”

Published: Wednesday 11th Jun 2014 by Sam

Songbird Leona Lewis is renown for pairing her powerful pipes with a much more demure demeanour off-stage. However, it appears the ‘Bleeding Love’ belter is a lot freer with her words since parting ways with longtime label Syco Music recently.

In a new interview with our friends over at Digital Spy, the singer offered quite the interesting response was quizzed about the difficulty leaving the label she’s called home since winning The X Factor in 2006.

Her comments after the jump…

Via DS:

No, [it was] not difficult, really. I’ve been with Syco/Sony for eight years. They’ve given me my launch pad and now it’s time for me to make my own tracks in my own way.

For me, it’s like leaving home. It’s like, ‘Bye, mum and dad. It’s time to go out and live my own life’. I’m really being able to spread my wings, fly and make something for myself now.

I went with Island because I like their creativeness and their individuality. The artists they have are really allowed and enticed to express themselves freely. What more can you ask for a label? It’s amazing.


Kudos to Leona for keeping it real.

It’s fair to say that, for all her success, the trajectory of her career suggests that she “should” be much bigger than she is. After all, the momentum she had following her debut album ‘Spirit’ seemed unstoppable.

As keen appreciators Lewis’ her talent, we hope Island serves as her facilitator of great material and greater success. Colour us excited!

        You’re black, I can tell by your failing grammar. Queen Leona got you pressed, hence you’re here being frustrated. All fine sweety!
