Leona Lewis is back after eight years away from the US charts with a tubthumping dance anthem “Fire Under My Feet.” The video features “individuals who are each marching to the beat of their own drummers” – like superfab supermodel Shaun Ross, that dancer Cassandra Naud with the ginormous birthmark, a random drag queen, a little ballet boy, a tattoo artist, and others. The real reason you’re watching it, though, is to judge for yourself how similar the song is to Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep.”
It is too early to tell whether or not enough of a resemblance exists between the two songs for any legal action to be taken, as the song has only just dropped. However, a controversy is likely the last thing Lewis is hoping for with this song especially given the legal back-and-forth that ensued with DJ and producer Avicii over her performance of the song “Collide” in 2011.
