Nearing its release date is Lea Michele’s debut album - an album everyone knows will have some mentions of Cory Monteith, her late boyfriend. It comes as no surprise then that she has revealed her tribute ballad titled If You Say So.

Co-written with the Australian singer and songwriter Sia Furler, Michele revealed that the title of the song is inspired by Monteith’s last words to her, before he passed away due to a drug overdose in July of 2013.

“It’s just a week ago, you said I love you girl. I said I love you more. And a breath, a pause, you said, if you say so,” the Glee star pours her heart out in the lyrics of If You Say So’s chorus.

Although it has been only seven months since the death of Monteith, Michele has been keeping it together. In fact, iTunes has started streaming her album, although it hasn’t been officially released yet.

To celebrate, the singer had an intimate listening session at a Los Angeles recording venue. Afterwards, the star posted pictures on Instagram, showing her with a small audience.

'Great night last night at @PulseRecording for my #LOUDER listening session!” was the caption of the photo.

Later the triple-threat spent sometime with former Glee co-star Jonathan Groff in order to celebrate the season two renewal of his show, Looking on HBO. The actors commemorated the success with matching shirts, as seen in another Instagram of Lea Michelle’s.

“Celebrating in matching #Surfboard sweatshirts!” She wrote alongside the picture of the Groff and her wearing their matching shirts on Instagram.
