Leona Lewis is keen to work with Coldplay on her second album, according to reports.

The former X Factor winner is said to be looking to give the follow-up to 2007’s ‘Spirit’ a “rockier edge”.


“Leona would love to work with Coldplay and knows Chris Martin likes her voice,” a source told the Sun newspaper.

“She would love to sing a duet with him. If not, maybe he could write a song for her.

“Chris is open to all kinds of music and isn’t at all snobby about what some see as cheesy pop.”

Lewis has previously spoken of her plans to work with a number of bands on the project – although she refused to name which ones.

As previously reported on Gigwise, both Lewis and Coldplay are among the biggest selling acts of 2008.

Lewis has enjoyed renewed success thanks to a re-release of her debut album, which includes bonus material.
