Leona Lewis ft Childish Gambino – ‘Trouble’

Another slick, big-production ballad with no conviction

You used to smoke 10”, she despairs, “now it’s 20”. Will someone call the cops? Expect the usual histrionics from this slick, big-production ballad, though you might have to suspend your disbelief somewhat, as you sense the most trouble Leona ever got herself into was taking teacher a Granny Smith when Miss preferred a Cox’s Orange Pippin.
