Leona Lewis New Song 2011: Collide (watch)

I am SO excited that Leona Lewis is back (sad I know) and guess what, she has come out with something that is not a ballad - it actually has a bit of an upbeat feel to it! Go Leona wid ya bad self!

Collide will be the lead single from her third album and after a lukewarm reception to her second (well in relation to her first album anyway) she will be hoping that the single will catapult her back to the top of the charts. The song was premiered on Radio 1 earlier today and will be released in September.

The song itself is a builder of epic proportions, with a happy piano melody and of course Leona's massive vocals. It's written by the same writer as Alexis Jordan's Happiness and it shows but in a good way. I like it and think it will be a grower.

But in a move that will only serve to give the song more publicity, Ministry of Sound have claimed that the song is a rip-off of an instrumental song by it's artist Avicii (a Swedish DJ), entitled Penguin. I have to say it does sound remarkeably similar. Maybe Ministry should just get Leona to sing over the track and everyone can be friends.

Does anyone else think it sounds like it could be the theme tune to the world cup or something?

Check it out below.... I've added a youtube and a remixed soundcloud version in case one gets taken down.

I'm really interested in what you think of it, so let me know in the comments section.

UPDATE: the video is finally here - woo hoo!  

What do you think?

I am not sure about it to be honest, think it's a bit weak for her. Agree about the world cup song though. Maybe it'll grow on me.
