Single Cover: Leona Lewis – ‘Collide’

Collide

Leona Lewis is radiant in a color-block dress on the cover of “Collide,” the first single from the British songbird’s as-yet-untitled third album. The dance floor anthem will be released to all digital retailers on September 6.

Swedish DJ-producer Avicii attempted to block the release of the song, claiming that the instrumental was a direct copy of his own work, “Fade Into Darkness.” Both camps resolved the dispute and added Avicii’s name to the credits.

Listen to the original mix and Afrojack remix below.

    @Andre, why are her arms so pale compared to her face?

    @listen, Is this a serious question? The face and neck gets more sun exposure than the rest of the body, so normally people are more tanned there.

    Also, in this picture her hair gives her face a bit more shade where as the light source is bright on her arms.

    I have been playing the Afrojack remix since both came online. The remix is much better than the original song.
    Love leona.

    I think it’s a great song. Far better than Happy as a 1st single choice.

    @diego, Really? Because on planet Earth the track hasn’t even been released. Or are you just from the future?

    Um, was this song inspired by Beyonce’s Smash Into You???

    TIMMI Reply:

    @zoocoos, Um, why? Because in both choruses they talk about smashing/crashing into eachother?

    Because that’s as far as the similarities go and that’s pretty minor… I wouldn’t really compare a dance track to a slow/mid-tempo ballad.

    stealing music from any artist is bullshit, but from Avicii is wrong on so many different levels
    make your own beat bitch

    @Aviciistan, How can it be classed as stealing when Leona was under the impression Avicii knew all about the use of the track?

    He should be thankful, Leona has done him far more of a favour then he has for her. Now people know of his existance.

    I can’t believe that Avicii’s has some rights to the song, it is a disgrace. This just shows what a nice person she is and doesn’t want to conflict with anyone. Chris brown didn’t give Calvin Harris the rights to “yeah 3x”, which is exactally the same

    @listen Her sleeves on her dress are cream color. If you see the HQ version of the pic, you see where there’s creases from it being a sleeved dress.

    I love Collide and all but I’m ready to hear “Trouble” and move on from this song after the whole controversy.
