There’s a good chance you’ve found yourself humming along to the hit “Counting Stars” in your car in recent months. That’s because OneRepublic has been pretty much dominating the pop airwaves with that song and their most recent single, “Love Runs Out.” But this band didn’t come from nowhere. If you’ve forgotten, OneRepublic also graced us with “Apologize” and “Stop and Stare” more than seven years ago. And it’s safe to say Ryan Tedder, OneRepublic’s lead singer, is partly to blame for a lot of the songs getting stuck in your head. He’s helped write and produce songs such as “Neon Lights” by Demi Lovato, “Rumour Has It” by Adele, “Halo” by Beyoncé and “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis. With songwriting credits like that, it’s obvious OneRepublic will keep churning out hits.
