Ryan Tedder has been announced as the top songwriter of the last quarter in the US by Billboard.
The singer-songwriter, producer and OneRepublic frontman topped the countdown thanks to his smash hit Counting Stars, which he wrote on his own, and co-credits on Ellie Goulding’s Burn and Maroon 5’s Love Somebody. The news comes hot on the heels of Tedder’s inclusion in the UK top songwriters according to Music Week and Official Charts Company.
Tedder is currently riding high with Beyonce’s latest single XO which he co-wrote and co-produced. The track was performed live for the first time last week by Beyonce at the BRIT Awards.
OneRepublic will be heading to the UK in March to kick-off their UK tour at London’s Roundhouse on 16th. The band’s single If I Lose Myself is available on iTunes now.
