While most of us know “We Found Love” as a classic Rihanna jam, there’s apparently another, original version out there. Leona Lewis recently revealed that she performed the Calvin Harris-penned tune first, but her take never saw the light of day.
“It was the same version and production but mine’s better,” said the London vocalist. “I still have the recording but I’d never leak it. That’s so unprofessional. There are so many songs I’ve recorded, only to hear other people singing them.” Confirming the story, Calvin Harris let out the following tweet earlier today regarding the alternate take.
