Listen to Lea Michele's New Single

Lea Michele is giving Miley Cyrus a run for her money.

The Broadway-actress-turned-TV-star has just released the first single off her debut album, “Louder.” “Cannonball,” as the song is called, is a ballad written by Sia Furler and Benny Bianco, and produced by Stargate.

The chorus, “I’ll fly like a cannonball,” is weirdly similar to Miley Cyrus’ “I came in like a wrecking ball,” from the eponymous song.

Let’s just hope they don’t bump into each other.

What do you think? Listen to the song here:
