Los Angeles: Pop star Leona Lewis says it was she who initially lent her voice on the dance hit `We Found Love`.

The smash hit, penned by Calvin Harris, was ultimately released with R&B star Rihanna`s vocals, reported a website.

"I worked with Calvin and we recorded We Found Love. But he went touring with Rihanna and she ended up releasing it. I didn`t commit to it because I wanted Trouble to be my (next) single so I think that was another reason they went with Rihanna," Lewis said.

Despite the massive success, Lewis, 27, believes her version is better than Rihanna`s.

"It was the same version and production but mine`s better. 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."
