Leona Lewis set to ‘fight’ Britney Spears

Leona Lewis is all set to take on US pop singer Britney Spears in the United Kingdom album list when she unveils her very first festive collection With Love on 2nd December. Lewis, the winner of the 2006 X Factor would also take on Kelly Clarkson's collection Wrapped In Red and Rebecca Ferguson, who would release her 2nd LP named Freedom on the very same day.

Other names out of the day include Mary J Blige's A Mary Christmas, Richard and Adam's The Christmas Album and Chris Brown's X.

In a statement, Lewis stated that this has been a busy year for her having been on tour, shooting her first movie and being in the recording studio. But, she could not wait to get out there this Christmas and perform these singles. She had fun recording this record and that really comes through in the songs. She is looking ahead to spread a little Christmas cheer.

The lead single of the record named One More Sleep would be unveiled one day before the release of the album on 1st December. Lewis’ previous album called Glassheart reached number three position in the United Kingdom previous October, following the huge chart topping success of her 1st two efforts Echoes and Spirit.

Leona Lewis is now in London to shoot her upcoming film. While Lewis’ decision to embark close to the East London roots was greeted with enthusiasm, her mumsy dress on the exterior got a mixed response.
