Beyonce Writer Ryan Tedder Named “Billboard”s ‘Top Writer’

Published: Wednesday 26th Feb 2014 by David

Responsible for smash hits such as ‘Halo’ and ‘XO’, longtime Beyonce collaborator Ryan Tedder has been named “Billboard“s ‘Top Writer‘. Tedder is being celebrated by the company for his chart-dominating winning streak in 2013!

Details below!

Upon learning of the enviable honour, the ‘Rolling in the Deep’ writer’s camp issued the release below, detailing “Billboard”‘s reasons for handing him the title

It reads:

Ryan Tedder, the hugely successful singer-songwriter, producer and OneRepublic frontman, continues to make waves in the music industry with the announcement that he’s taken the crown as the top writer of the last quarter in the US.  

According to Billboard’s quarterly review, Tedder reached the top spot for the period spanning October to December 2013 thanks to his sole credit on the smash hit ‘Counting Stars’ with his band OneRepublic and his co-credits on Ellie Goulding’s ‘Burn’ andMaroon 5’s ‘Love Somebody’.”


“The news comes hot on the heels of Tedder’s inclusion in the UK top songwriters list (No. 4) according to Music Week and Official Charts Company.  Tedder started the year off with a bang with ‘Counting Stars’ – OneRepublic’s first UK number one single which shot to the top of the charts twice last October – being named the ninth biggest selling single of last year.  Also featured in the Official Top 40 end of year chart was Ellie Goulding’s ‘Burn’.”

Also responsible for Adele‘s Blues inspired “Rumour Has It”, Tedder’s time in “One Republic” has seen him score the 5x Platinum hit with 2007’s “Apologize” and 4x Platinum number that is “Counting Stars“, released June 14th 2013.

    He deserves it. He’s a really talented songwriter.

  2. truthtea February 26, 2014

    He wrote for Kelly Clarkson and other artists way before he even worked with BeyBonic.

  3. BeyBeyKing February 26, 2014

    @TruthTea Ooops, I accidentally spilled you all over the floor and let my dog lick you. Don’t take it personal?

  4. Bey Fan February 26, 2014

    dude is a beast

  5. Molly February 26, 2014

    Beyonce writer? death He’s also a writer for his group one republic but of course this is a Beyonce fan site so you have to mention her.

  6. h2o February 26, 2014

    Grats Ryan, “Rocketeer” is one of my favorite songs

  7. FantasiaSlayrino February 26, 2014

    I know Molly is mad that Ryan would never give BabymamaAra a song.

  8. fraudonce February 26, 2014

    When will Beyfraud write her own music? Oh that’s right she only has a 5th grade education and doesn’t know the English language that well….

  9. Micks February 26, 2014

    They titled it that to get reaction out of you idiots. And you fall for it…. Death

  10. FutureCIARA February 26, 2014


    Yes sis, clock Tz.

    @TGJ being the #1 Beyhive fansite!!

  11. FutureCIARA February 26, 2014

    Adele needs to come back and slay these basic twiggy stripper b******!

    Im ready for another era similar to “21” ….


  12. LDN Chick February 26, 2014

    I doubt he’ll ever write for Flopara. Probably never heard of her.

  13. My Forehead Tho February 26, 2014

    He deserves it. When the first ever black woman to win a ASCAP songwriters award teams up with one of the best songwriters of this generation, magic is bound to happen. Beyonce and Ryan Tedder should co write together more often.

  14. Molly February 26, 2014

    Im not mad but im sick of this site trying to make everything about Beyonce. @Fantasia

  15. I.D. February 26, 2014

    Congratulations, Ryan. Well deserved.

    Pity she didn’t get the accolade herself, hmmm?

  16. mekaela February 26, 2014

    Sam writes everything about bey if she scratches her pusssy he writes about it why don’t he writes about her failures too he does it to everyone else Beyonce was criticize at the brit award if that was rih Mariah or cierra we would see a big post I truly think this site is been paid by Beyonce camp

  17. Molly February 26, 2014

    @FutureCiara Exactly its annoying like get off her dickk for a min

  18. Honeymoon Avenue February 26, 2014

    I didn’t know he wrote for all these artists. Counting Stars is a great song, this guy is very talented. He’s suppose to be working on Ariana’s next album too. Very excited!!!

  19. BarbzRUs February 26, 2014

    Ciara is too busy making babies for that Mr.Child Support to even fly onto King Ryan’s radar imo.

  20. WeAreLambily February 26, 2014

    Ariana has a new album coming out? Has this one even gone Gold?

  21. MDNA2014 February 26, 2014

    Mariah has a new single out? Has this one charted in the Top 1000 yet?

  22. slay_hive February 26, 2014

    Congrats Ryan! I love halo!! 😀

    The same people complaining about this being a Beyonce fan site. STILL come back, click on the “beyonce” related posts, comment and complain. Then they wonder why sam does it! kii #retards

  23. Honeymoon Avenue February 26, 2014

    I don’t feed trolls, sorry. You’ll have to do better than that.

  24. QueenCeline February 26, 2014

    Good for you @HoneymoonAvenue , 1000Riah isn’t worth the response.

  25. Molly February 26, 2014

    Death at this q**** dedicating its whole comment towards me.

  26. Molly February 26, 2014

    Unlike Beyonce Ciara writes her own music. @Barb

  27. slay_hive February 26, 2014

    lol stupid ass little b****

  28. Truth Serum February 26, 2014

    @Molly, you sound so stupid. You know how blogs work right??? Stop posting 20 plus times on Beyonce post, like a stalker, then Sam won’t post as many articles;decreased traffic. Miss me with the deranged bs. Beyonce post and the hive gave you relevancy…

  29. MATT February 26, 2014

    So tired of Sam, he’s the reason why I am not much of a fan of Beyonce anymore because he completely overkills her hype so damn much on this(his) site.

    And this is disrespectful because when you put a title saying “Beyonce’s Writer” that means this guy has nothing going on for himself and last time I checked he’s the lead singer of a Grammy Nominated chart topping successful pop rock group!

    So feel free to explain to us why do you overhype Beyonce so much when it’s not needed. Just a question!

  30. Molly February 26, 2014

    @Truth b**** im replying back to comments by these h*** bothered about what i said f**** outta here. Yall dont like the “Truth” i seee kiiiii

  31. Truth Serum February 26, 2014

    Delusions of grandeur. I’m a real Ciara fan and you’re one of the reasons that she get dragged on this blog.

  32. stop the complaining/ashley February 26, 2014

    How can a blogger’s opinion make you dislike an artist? Save the bull. Half of you don’t like Beyonce anyway. Just another excuse to complain.

    The fact that this site stans for her bothers you, but you can’t help but to click and read. Ryan Tedder has wrote songs for Beyonce. Therefore, making him a writer for Beyonce.

    You people ignored the credit TGJ gave Ryan Tedder in the article, but stressing over something as simple and petty as the title. If he wouldn’t have put Beyonce in the title, I can guarantee none of you would have even been interested enough to click.

    If the Beyonce mentions bother you so much, find another site. TGJ will write whatever they choose. This is their site, after all.

  33. Molly February 26, 2014

    Your a real Ciara fan yet your never in a single Ciara post, i state my opinion not my problem people are so petty they have to resort to Ciara shade.

  34. Molly February 26, 2014

    Im so sick of hearing the squad is the reason Ciara gets dragged NEWS FLASH b****** we all are the reason our favs get dragged by stating our opinion im not sugar coating s*** just because i stan for some i will always state how i f****** feel.
