Leona Lewis - Island UK / Def Jam
After years of collaboration with Simon Cowell and SYCO Music, Leona split from the label to re-find her sound and image. She chose Toby to do that soul-searching with, and the result was an album-wide collaboration spanning over 20 songs written primarily just between the two of them. The lead international single, "Fire Under My Feet", is an anthemic return to her place in music and the discovery of her own artistic voice. Leona followed "Fire's" success with "I Am" in the UK. "Thunder" was released as the first US single, a song about "the strength of rising after the fall."
