Rep: Adele & Beyonce Collaboration is NOT Happening, Despite Reports

Published: Monday 30th Sep 2019 by Rashad

OneRepublic lead singer Ryan Tedder sent his Twitter mentions soaring over the weekend when he took to the annual Global Citizen Festival to confirm Beyonce would be joining forces with Adele for the Pop group’s upcoming album.

Having written hits for both in the past (‘Halo’ for Bey, ‘Turning Tables’ for Addy), news outlets and fans of both divas alike immediately assumed Tedder’s comments had merit – a circumstance only supported by the Pop divas’ very public comments of admiration for each other over the years.

Monday morning (September 30) saw those fan dreams dashed, however, after a rep for the 40-year-old singer-songwriter confirmed the collaboration is not happening.

Details inside:


As we reported here, Tedder sent fans of Coldplay, Adele, and Beyonce into a frenzy when he announced the trio would be assisting OneRepublic on a song on the group’s new album.  Now, a rep for the group is backtracking on his behalf.

CNN reports:

‘”We have one song featuring Beyoncé and Adele with a Chris Martin piano solo on the bridge,”‘ Tedder said. But a rep for Tedder told CNN Monday [September 30] that he was just joking.’


Well, there you have it folks!

Update:  Ryan later took to social media himself to clear up the mess.

    Was he actually joking ?
    Or was it supposed to remain confidential and he effed up ?!

    • Swirly September 30, 2019

      Most likely the latter. Beyoncé doesn’t play that.

  2. Haterz Gon‘ Hate September 30, 2019

    Was he drunk? I mean – imagine being that high profile a writer/producer and JOKING about two of the biggest artists of our generation. WHY would you do that? I don’t rate Adele’s voice so I’m unbothered – but that’s really unprofessional. I reckon there is more Tea ☕️ to come …..

    Vulture beyonce wants a hit so bad.

    After releasing a documentary on how her album the gift was made, u will think the album would re-enter the top 10 but it didnt, even the lead single spirit is nowhere to be found on the chart. Shameful

    • Tyty September 30, 2019

      Hey Tgi when you get read of trolls like this jobless freak you might see your comment section pick up again. It’s like a ghost town in your posts lately.

      • Pu$$yPopstress September 30, 2019

        Nah sis everybody just moved to fb. A lot of other big sites too even like ew and et online have no
        Comments on the site but all on fb

        Tgj fb comment section is just as rude and nasty and trifling as the site commenters used to be

      • Swirly September 30, 2019

        Where have you been? The comment section on TGJ was way worse back in the day. Almost every post had hundreds of comments full of trolls and Stan wars. This is lite compared to say 5 years ago.

    • Dc September 30, 2019

      Exactly nobody want to hear her fake Africa stuff not believable that’s why it didn’t sell

    • Lucky you September 30, 2019

      Like the hits she’s always produced.

    • Pu$$yPopstress September 30, 2019


      Like i said, the tgj fb posts are now what are attracting the post count similar to that of the past

      • Tyty September 30, 2019

        @swirly I know I used to come to this site years ago but it was kind of fun when stan wars where a thing… but like anything it gets tired and boring when you have the same trolls leaving a gazillion comments. At least in the past the stan wars consisted of comments with some semblance of intelligence. Someone like Clarkson or ??? Will leave the same repetitive s*** on every post.

      • Clarkson September 30, 2019

      • Tyty September 30, 2019

        Do you know the difference between begging and posting a suggestion? My goodness just when I thought you couldn’t get anymore stupid you always prove that you can always get dumber.

      • Clarkson September 30, 2019

        U are threatened by my intelligence, ur not the first person to be threatened by my intelligence, I know how to deal with dumb àsses like u.

    He probably is wasn’t supposed to say anything neither Beyoncé or Adele are known to just blab about their projects.

  5. pat September 30, 2019

    big names or not, it sounded super boring. audiences are smart these days and its an obvious hail mary to get beyonce back on mainstream radio

  6. SMH September 30, 2019

    No one wanted it anyway.

  7. Ratedxxx September 30, 2019

    I see beyondfake and her peoples trying to use Adele name to stay relevant….

    Bish is so dang thirsty lately..

    • Jeans September 30, 2019

      ??? I don’t think people care for a duet with those two anyway

    • Strawberry October 1, 2019

      Scrambling to get on mainstream radio is for amateurs and mountain climbers. The goal is the MountainTop. And all of the people you here on mainstream radio are gazing up at Beyonce because she’s already up there. #Mic-Drop#ALL HAIL THE QUEEN#WatchtheThrone.***

  8. L’ORANGE September 30, 2019

    He was not joking. He said on twitter for a reason as he wanted Beyoncé and Adele team to respond. However, they both decline and it became a joke
