After her last single, "Collide," a blatant attempt at the dance-pop trend, Leona Lewis has decided to return to what she does best: moody, heartbreak music.
"Trouble," her new single even references "bleeding," you know, just like her breakout hit "Bleeding Love." It also sports a feature from hipster rapper/actor Donald Glover, who brings his angry nerd rap/shouting-at-you-so-you-can-take-me-seriously thing to Leona's track.
But hats off to Leona, the gloomy track is totally in her wheelhouse and it works. Her voice goes from angelic to wounded without effort and the lyrics, penned by Emeli Sande, speak eloquently about a complicated relationship that is fraught with the emotional thorns of a dozen roses.
"I told you never to get used to me / I still wake when you fall asleep / I'm a whole lot of trouble / We're in a whole lot of trouble," Leona sings.
