@Rain_ValeraAfter being with Syco Entertainment for seven years, the record label of Simon Cowell, singer Leona Lewis has signed a new deal with Island Records, which is under the Universal umbrella. It is a rival of Sony, which co-owns Syco with Cowell. Lewis stated:
After seven incredible years at Sony I feel honored to be given the opportunity to sign to perhaps the most iconic label of all, Island Records. To me Island has always been a label where artists can really flourish and are encouraged to express themselves. Island stands for quality music and signing with such a legendary label is really like a dream come true for me. I can't wait to start making music with my new team.There seems to be no hard feelings between Lewis and her former boss, since Cowell tweeted out his congratulations: https://twitter.com/SimonCowell/status/473859370045161472 Leona Lewis was signed to Syco after she won the third season of the X-factor. Cowell was not only a judge on the show, but was also Lewis’ mentor through the competition. She went on to achieve worldwide fame with her debut album Spirit, which went to number 1 in the UK and the US. It also spawned her hit single "Bleeding Love" which went to number 1 in 34 countries. She is also a six time Brits Award winner and three time Grammy Award nominee. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
