Leona Lewis will reportedly enter recording booth alongside powerhouse producer/rapper Timbaland for her upcoming sophomore set. "Timbaland can't wait to work with Leona and make her feisty like Beyonce [Knowles] and Rihanna," a source says as quoted by The Mirror.
Other big names rumored to be lined up to help Leona in the new album are Jay-Z and will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. No official statement has been given regarding the news though.
Previously, Justin Timberlake has been confirmed to produce one of Leona Lewis' new singles called "Don't Let Me Down". He visited Chalice Recording Studios when the winner of 2006 "The X Factor" recorded the new track back in March.
Details on what fans can expect from the new album are still unclear. But, a spokesperson for Leona promises that the record will still have the singer's trademark ballad tunes in addition to danceable sounds. "The ballads will still be there but the tracks will be racier and there'll be dancefloor anthems too," the spokesperson says. "It's early stages but we're all very excited."
