Leona Lewis has revealed she was the first person to record vocals for We Found Love, only to see Calvin Harris give the track to Rihanna.

It proved to be a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic, cementing the Bajan singer's position among the music world's biggest stars and making Harris one of the most in-demand producers in the industry.

Despite the success of the track, the X Factor winner believes her version is better than RiRi's.
Lewis told the Daily Star: 'I worked with Calvin and we recorded We Found Love. But he went touring with Rihanna and she ended up releasing it.

'I didn't commit to it because I wanted Trouble to be my [next] single so I think that was another reason they went with Rihanna.
'It was the same version and production but mine's better.

Lewis still has the tapes, but fans shouldn't expect to find the song appearing online in the near future.
'I'd never leak it. That's so unprofessional,' she said.

'It was a bit annoying to see how big a hit it was around the world but if I'd released it maybe it wouldn't have done as well.'
Lewis's third studio album Glassheart, which features Trouble, is out tomorrow and she will be hoping it follows Spirit and Echo in topping the charts.
