Soe's been sharing some exciting news on DS from his source. Leona will be flying out to the US next week and a huge radio tour is planned. Def Jam are treating FUMF as a buzz single and 'Thunder' will almost definitely be the first US single. It is very US friendly. In addition to all of this, Leona will be shooting videos for both 'Thunder' and 'I Am' in the coming weeks. Exciting stuff!!

Basically they continue to release singles that give shit about syco.It's weird they go with thunder, especially since the people that have heard all the 8 tracks (out of 10), loved I am , I got you and another love song..so I thought they could push one of these as lead single probably I goy you got the best reaction, I do not recall anyone that have the sampler talking about thunder , the only one was Ingham that reply someone else saying was tipical leona song and he loved it..I didnt hear the song but I hope it's a lead material, we cannot face another situation where the single picked it's not the strongest

We don't know this for sure though, that Soe has been wrong quite a lot and is the reason for that clearly faked email...

That's unfair to accuse Soe of faking the email. Also, if it turns out to be wrong, the title can always be changed. Soe said the next single will première very soon on US radio so it makes sense to make a thread for this.

Soe has been very reliable and has given us loads of legit info over the years, so your being very unfair.

Also he said they were 'considering' Thunder as the US lead, not that it was.

Exciting! Although this might not be the second single in the UK if they are shooting a video for "I Am".

I'm looking forward to hearing "Thunder" - it sounds like it should be a mid-tempo, darker track based on the title, but who knows? Another Love Song sounded like it should've been a ballad. laugh.gif

Well this sounds exciting! Probably best to leave FUMF as a buzz single and move onto something else. I am optimistic for her.

Track 1 on the album. I'm pretty sure it will be the next single.

Oh well that sucks for you now since the feature was confirmed today and I spilled the tea last week. And that email wasn't faked because I could easily take a printscreen. Get on your knees and apologise for accusing me of trolling.

The vocals are obviously fantastic but I can't help but feel a little underwhelmed by those snippets. It all sounds a bit mid-tempo and bland to me. After Fire, I was hoping for a lot more punch. I Got You and Another Love Song sound great so it would have been good to get snippets of them. I don't know, I'll reserve judgement for now and keep my fingers crossed for something special.

I was a little underwhelmed initially at first if I am honest, but on the fourth or so listen they all just hut me at once and I have had them on repeat ever since, I think they all sound brilliant.

Thunder sounds amazing and I hope it does big things in the US.

Thunder should be a brilliant single. I get how it makes for an instant emotional connection. Great great single choice moving ahead...in the US, finally!

I hope Thunder is great! I am holding back opinion until I hear the entire thing though - I thought FUMF sounded great from snippets, and was hugely underwhelmed when the song first came about and it never really grew on me either.

I think "Thunder" has a much stronger melody than "Fire Under My Feet" just based on the snippet, so think it'll be a lot better. cheer.gif
