The Islington-born songstress made the decision to leave Simon Cowell's record label Syco in 2014, which she recently talked about in an interview with The Independent. Lewis revealed that she made this decision because she was "at that stage [where] all they were doing was holding me back from fulfilling my potential." But now that she's free from Cowell she's made a rather unorthodox promotional move — although it's one that's good news for Grindr users.

But there has been a rather mixed bag of reactions when it comes to Lewis' promo.

Oh how times have changed.
