HITS SONGS STARS REJECTED

"I passed on 'We Found Love," Scherzinger told Notion magazine of the Rihanna song penned by Calvin Harris. "I was like, 'Oh, there’s so much dance and I want to take a break from it'. That was my fault. I slept on it." My bad indeed. Still Scherzinger shouldn't feel bad - she's not alone. The song was reportedly originally written for UK star Leona Lewis who said pragmatically of the loss "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." The track went on to sell millions of copies and hit number one in 25 countries.
