Leona Lewis Leaves Syco For Island Records

Leona Lewis has left Simon Cowell’s record label Syco for a new deal with Island Records. Read on to find out why!


Leona Lewis
has left Simon Cowell’s record label Syco for a new deal with Island Records.

The singer was signed to the Sony label back in 2006 after she won The X Factor. Leona has now signed with Island Records, a label which has artists including Drake, Angel Haze, Bombay Bicycle Club, Jessie J and Robbie Williams.

Speaking about her new signing, Leona explained:

“After seven incredible years at Sony I feel honoured 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.”

Darcus Beese, president of Island, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Leona into the Island family. I’ve watched and admired Miss Lewis from afar, witnessed her grow into one of this country’s most formidable female artists. Witnessed a girl from Hackney making and breaking records, topping the UK and US charts, earning numerous Brit and Grammy nominations, while remaining true to herself and her principles. All the while maintaining a genuine down to earth appeal. Soon as the ink dries, it’s on to the most exciting part of all, getting into the studio and making the record we know Leona has in her.”

During her time at Syco, Leona achieved two number one albums, a top three album and nine top 10 singles in the UK.

Meanwhile, the singer is about to make her cinema debut in new British musical Walking on Sunshine, which will be released on 27th June.
