LEONA Lewis has admitted there was Trouble when Rihanna had a smash with We Found Love – because she had recorded it first.

The X Factor superstar was originally chosen to sing the Calvin Harris hit but ended up losing out to RiRi.

Although LeLe’s version has been relegated to the trash can she reckons it’s better than the Bajan babe’s.

Leona told me: “I worked with Calvin and we recorded We Found Love. But he went touring with Rihanna and she ended up releasing it.

“I didn’t commit to it because I wanted Trouble to be my first single so I think that was another reason they went with Rihanna. It was the same version and production but mine’s better.”

Rebecca Ferguson’s ‘Heaven’ re-release: Is it worth buying?
With album sales reaching an all time low earlier this year, it’s little surprise that singers are keen to cash in on the busy Christmas sales period.

For those who aren’t ready to put out a new record, their only option is a special edition of their current LP; one that includes a handful of extra tracks and, if we’re lucky, some bonus DVD material that we’ll almost certainly never watch.

One such artist leading this year’s repackages is Rebecca Ferguson, who re-releases her debut album Heaven with five new songs next week. As you may have noticed, we were quite taken with the original (which has sold over half a million copies to date), so is it really worth buying a second time around?
