Leona Lewis Furious at Pre-Famous Album Release

Leona Lewis and Simon Cowell reportedly are unhappy that UEG will release an album containing songs recorded by the star before 'X-Factor'.

Leona Lewis will have two of her albums competing against each other the end of this year. Before the re-packaged version of her debut album "Spirit" is released to vie for Christmas No. 1, a CD containing songs that she recorded pre-famous will be released by her old record company few weeks prior.

"Best Kept Secret", an album containing ten tracks that she recorded between 2004 to 2006 before she won "X Factor" two years ago, will be released by UEG and Lewis is reportedly unhappy with that. The British singer and her current label Syco are furious that UEG has won the right to distribute the CD starting from October 20 in U.K. later this year.

"Leona made it before she was famous and didn't expect it to come back to haunt her like this," a source told ViP. "The album was finished in 2006 and due for release that year. Then Leona won X Factor and all communications between her and UEG stopped." Among the tracks listed on "Best Kept Secret" are two singles that she released in 2005, "Dip Down" and "Private Party".

Problem is, producer Simon Cowell will drop the revamped "Spirit" in November and he doesn't want people to confuse it with the old one. The special edition of "Spirit" will be packaged with a few extra songs and videos.
