“Forgive Me” is an upbeat song, first time for Lewis’ that is. It’s a fresh track incorporated with heavy drums and some harmonica playing the background. It’s proving to be an astutely move for her especially with her career currently in hiatus in her hometown. Still, the song never fails to showcase Lewis’ absolutely powerful vocals and a certain attitude that we loved when we first heard Bleeding Love. But is it really a nice move for Leona to shift from singing incredibly big ballads into something dancy, funky and bass-rich tracks? Lyrically, it’s about her asking for forgiveness with lines arrantly said “I got to take the chance tonight, so I’m doing me, myself tonight”. It’s really a good song but not that spectacular as “Bleeding Love” or so.
Will “Forgive Me” be Leona’s third #1 single? The answer will have to wait until the release of the single on November 3.
