The catalog includes nearly 500 songs written, recorded or produced by three-time Grammy winner Tedder for OneRepublic and other artists, including songs Tedder has written with Beyonce, U2, Paul McCartney, Adele, Stevie Wonder, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Jonas Brothers, Thomas Rhett and all OneRepublic songs including their massive hits “Apologize,” “Secrets” and “Counting Stars,” which just passed 40 million in sales and is one of the highest selling singles in Interscope Records’ history. Songs written by Tedder have sold over 420 million copies, or the equivalent of 63 billion streams.

 

The certified-platinum album NATIVE followed in 2013, featuring the No.1 hit and 40 million plus-selling single “Counting Stars,” along with a worldwide tour.

The #1 that got away - can't believe this smash got blocked. Was SO different from all the hits at the time that it still stands out to me.

Counting Stars, Apologize and Secrets all should have hit number 1, they deserved!

It wasn't really different from the hits of the time, since Somebody That I Used to Know/Some Nights/Just Give Me a Reason became hits in 2012, a lot of more faux-indie oriented songs became hits.
