Lea Michele Drops ‘Cannonball’ Debut Single

Lea Michele aka Rachel Berry of the FOX hit series Glee has fans going crazy over her debut single that she just dropped titled “Cannonball”. The single has already reached the #1 spot in Brazil and Sweden and landed as #4 in Italy while continuing to top the international charts in general.

aw yeah

 “awww yeaaaaah”

That’s all good and everything but after listening to the track I kind of feel like my strings have been pulled. I was amped to hear what Lea Michele was packing, especially with a song title like “Cannonball” but after checking it out, I can’t help but feel slightly disappointed. The song is a nice pop track but c’mon Lea, you can do way better than that! This girl has such an amazing voice that sparkles on Glee yet “Cannonball” doesn’t really stand out to me. It just sounded generic and Lea Michele is more than that!

ho hum

“ho-hum”

Since this is just the debut single for her album Louder, I ‘m hoping that the rest of her songs will provide us with more of that powerhouse voice Lea Michele has with deeper lyrics too.

Check out the tracklist for Louder below:

1. Cannonball
2. On My Way
3. Burn with You
4. Battlefield
5. You’re Mine
6. Thousand Needles
7. Louder
8. Cue the Rain
9. Don’t Let Go
10. Empty Handed
11. If You Say So

Lyrics to “Cannonball” below:

Break it down
Break it down
Break it down
I was scared to death I was losing my mind
Break it down
I couldn’t close my eyes I was pacing all night
I think I found the light out the end of the tunnel
I couldn’t find the truth I was going under

But I won’t hide inside
I gotta get out, gotta get out
Gotta get out, gotta get out
Lonely inside and light the fuse
Light it now, light it now, light it now

And now I will start living today
Today, today I close the door
I got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
I’ll fly, I’ll fly, I’ll fly like a cannonball

Freedom
I let go of fear and the peace came quickly
Freedom
I was in the dark and then it hit me
I chose suffering and pain in the falling rain
I know, I gotta get out into the world again

But I won’t hide inside
I gotta get out, gotta get out
Gotta get out, gotta get out
Lonely inside and light the fuse
Light it now, light it now, light it now

And now I will start living today
Today, today I close the door
I got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
I’ll fly, I’ll fly, I’ll fly like a cannonball

Break it down
I was scared to death I was losing my mind
Break it down
I gotta get out into the world again

And now I will start living today
Today, today I close the door
I got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
I’ll fly, I’ll fly, I’ll fly like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
I’ll fly, I’ll fly, I’ll fly like a cannonball
