CHART SPOTLIGHT. Sure, it was the clash between Leona Lewis and producer Avicii. Let’s forget about it for a minute and focus on the brilliant Afrojack Remix of ‘Collide.’ Scheduled for release in September, this marks the return of Leona Lewis who hasn’t issued a hit single since 2010’s ‘I Got You.’
The track is written by Autumn Rowe who also penned the current hit by Cher Lloyd (‘Swagger Jagger’). Produced by French Sandy Vee, the track premiered on The Scott Mills Show in mid-July. Back to the feud with Avicii, his record label Ministry of Sound claimed that Leona Lewis’ use of a sample was unauthorized. Lewis’ label Syco ciaims, however, that he is properly credited.
