HomeTVSummerlandBetcha didn’t know…Jesse McCartney and Leona Lewis Jamey Giddens July 19, 2008 Summerland 4 Comments Betcha didn’t know that daytime star-turned R&B prince Jesse McCartney (ex-JR Chandler, All My Children) co-wrote the smash hit "Bleeding Love" for British breakout star Leona Lewis. McCartney co-wrote the tune with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, according to the June issue of Atlanta Peach magazine Freelance writer Humberto Guida interviewed McCartney for the recent release of his third CD Departure. In the revealing interview McCartney details his transition from boy to man, musically and when it comes to the ladies: "Crossing this bridge into an adult lifestyle, that’s what this record is. It presents a lot of growth. There’s no fear. It’s truthful. The content is mainly on my relationships with women. And that’s what I want to write about now, but in a more mature way." The Summerland alum and Alvin and the Chipmunks star’s debut single for Departure, the infectious jam "Leaving", is currently Number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Departure is available for purchase online at Amazon.com.

Jesse’s doing big things good for him. Log in to Reply Luke Kerr July 19, 2008 Do you really think he has what it takes to be the next Timberlake? Justin had such a huge launching pad with *NSYNC while McCartney has to work his way up on his own. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens July 19, 2008 It’s an awesome magazine! Jesse is going to be the next Timberlake. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens July 19, 2008 Luke, Jesse is a triple threat. He co-wrote one of the biggest pop hits of the year, he’s a great actor, has an amazing voice and a look made for pop stardom. It’s not always about platforms or launching pads.
