Beyonce & Adele Collaboration On the Way, Says Singer-Songwriter Ryan Tedder

Published: Sunday 29th Sep 2019 by Rashad

Have the Pop gods finally answered the prayers of many-a-Beyonce and Adele fan?

If word from celebrated songwriter, OneRepublic lead singer Ryan Tedder is to be believed the answer is a resounding “yes.”

Over 60,000 concertgoers took to New York’s Central Park on Saturday (September 28) to attend the annual Global Citizen Festival, an annual event that assembles some of music’s biggest names to raise funds and awareness toward the eradication of poverty worldwide.

With this year’s lineup rocked by the likes of Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, Adam Lambert, Queen, and more, the artists who perform use the opportunity to not only show off their dedication to activism but also showcase their greatest and latest hits.  That promotion continues backstage as well where performers are given the opportunity to dish on the cause at large as well as their respective forthcoming offerings.

OneRepublic‘s Ryan Tedder took the opportunity to send Beyonce and Adele fans into a frenzy when he casually announced the two would be joining forces for a song on the group’s new album.  Hear it from his lips below:


While no release date on the venture was revealed, the thought alone is certainly enough to turn heads.  Fans familiar with both divas’ catalog know Tedder is the penman responsible for Bey’s hits ‘Halo’ and ‘XO‘ as well as Adele’s ‘Turning Tables’ and ‘Remedy.’  With Coldplay‘s Chris Martin on the keys to fill out the trio of features, OneRepublic just may shatter the Earth when the tune is unveiled (provided this isn’t just some sick joke on Tedder’s part).

Bey and Addy have long expressed their admiration of each other, a mutual respect that has only increased calls for a collaboration over the years.  If it comes to fruition, this may finally be the answer to that longstanding request.

    Eh. I’ve been let down by duets before. Beyonce & Alicia Keys was lame. Fantasia & Jennifer Hudson. Monica & Brandy 2.0.

    I hope it’s like the Stand Up for Cancer song in terms of vibe.

  2. #TheTruth September 29, 2019

    When I think of duet between 2 female artists, I instantly think of « When You Believe ». Pure talent right here.

    I know there’s been quite a few since the past 20 years, but nothing that hit me like that.

    I hope they recorded a classic.

    Can we have the song without One Republic?

  4. Tyty September 29, 2019

    I’m tired of artists confirming songs that never happen stfu.

    • The Real Princess Jasmine September 29, 2019

      Can we get a song with Meg The Stallion and Beyoncé HTown Hotties

      • Dc September 29, 2019

        Meg ain’t big enough yet

  5. G-bby September 29, 2019

    Beyonce’s voice is soulless. They should have featured real singers like Monica or Jennifer Hudson.

    • Pu$$yPopstress September 29, 2019

      Adele sings like a moose and Monica like a mountain goat

      No one wants to hear that forest realness

      • Jeans September 29, 2019

        ???? @ forest realness????

      • BC September 29, 2019

        I literally chocked. Funniest thing I’ve read all day

    • Danny Bey September 29, 2019

      Jennifer does not have soul. The bish screams and yells just because she can. Hitting notes and yelling and imitating Aretha does not a soul singer make.

      • Queen?Bee❤️ September 29, 2019

        Yet and still the Kween of Soul Handpicked J.Hud to portray her. Was Beyonce even a thought? Stay pressed by the Academy Award winning DIVA!!! Smooches luv?????

      • Jeans September 29, 2019


    • Tyty September 29, 2019

      And were is her acting career now?? Beyoncé has been co-signed by dozens of legends so was that comparison meant to mean something?? Beyoncé is an A star rated vocalist. Jennifer Hudson just screeches she has poor technique and tone… and that’s just two things she does wrong amongst a long list. You can be delusional as you please but when it comes to singing no vocalist expert would co-sign that mess you wrote.

    • Strawberry September 29, 2019

      Beyonce is the voice of our generation. She can sing circles around all dem girls in her sleep. Including jennifer Hudson. They all wish they could BE her!

      • Dc September 29, 2019

        ???? Beyoncé sure didn’t sang circles around Jennifer Hudson in Dream Girls try again

      • Queen?Bee❤️ September 29, 2019

        Keep dreaming!! Beyonce is irrelevant in today’s society. I said what I said?

    • Tyty September 29, 2019

      Facts baby not dreams you just mad cause you couldn’t dispute it… but I’m sure j hud her acting and music will get her another Oscar in that cat movie she is doing? Or maybe it’s some talent show nobody cares about she is judging on. ??

    For some reason, I feel like he was trying to make a joke? Also, why does the clip stop so abruptly?

    • ImReallyReallyReal September 29, 2019

      In what universe does a collaboration with Beyoncé get announced this way?

  7. Clarkson September 29, 2019

    Adele stay away from beyonce, she uses people and dumps them . She rides people’s wave of success. She did it with shakira, she did it with Sean Paul, she did it with Donald Glover . The collaborations dont even hit number one.

    Collaborating with beyonce is the kiss of death for every artist career .

    She collaborated with lady gaga and after some few years gaga’s career took a hit, same thing with nicki minaj. After feeling my self nicki was over.
    Same thing with Sean Paul
    Same thing with shakira.

    Stay away from beyonce

    • Strawberry September 29, 2019

      Tell that lie to Eddie Sgeeran. He rode the Queen’s coattails all the way to #1 the last time he sang with Beyonce. #Watch the Throne jealous wannabees.

      • Queen?Bee❤️ September 29, 2019

        It was set to go #1 before she hopped on. Besides no one sings the version with her on it.?

    • Strawberry September 29, 2019

      and to the idiot who brought up Dreamgirls, ..uhh the director forced Beyonce to downplay the power of her voice because the role called for her to emphasize beauty & marketability over a fat but vocally superior Effie White.

    • Strawberry September 29, 2019

      I did she hop on Baby Boy when it hit #1 with Sean paul ? Oh yeah that was Her record. And according to Billboard , PERFECT would have stalled In the top 5 behind Post Malone’ s Rockstar & Camilla cabello’s HAVANA had it not been for the BEYONCE DUET breathing new life into it. STAY PRESSed & do yo homework before you come for the Queen***

      • Queen?Bee❤️ September 29, 2019

        If that’s true tea then why hasn’t she had a solo #1 since Bush was in office? Let that marinate!!!?

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. September 29, 2019

        @Queen…- hahaha @ “…#1 since Bush was in office”

      • Strawberry October 1, 2019

        Once again you fail to do your homework because even as she serenaded the newly minted first couple the night after Barack Obama had been sworn in as president of the United States, the #1 song in the country was “Single Ladies (put a Ring on it.).. by BEYONCE (solo).. backatcha Queen Wanna-be-HER! But we understand. #WatchtheThrone*

    • Strawberry September 29, 2019

      and did you notice that at the time all those collaborations took place, Beyonce was the bigger star & usually in Awe of her. Gaga only wanted her and Ed Sheeran begged & was even willing to wait for her to BIRTH her babies. ..cuz like you & I.. THEY ALL WATCH THE THRONE***

  8. Xoxo September 29, 2019

    I don’t want a slow song ft Beyonce.

  9. Swirly September 30, 2019

    This is almost a decade too late.

  10. Sandra September 30, 2019

    I’m not excited or hyped for this
    I would’ve loved KeKe Wyatt & Fantasia
    Jazmine Sullivan & Teyana Taylor ….even
    Alexander Burke and Leona Lewis.
