He's worked with some of THE biggest pop stars on the planet, but who can song-writing genius Ryan Tedder lend his hand to next? These are just some of the collabs we NEED to see in 2015.
… including Adele, Beyonce and One Direction. But now that 2015 is right around the corner, here are the people we think Ryan should shimmer some of his musical goodness on next!
Lorde and Ryan are both mega overachievers, with Lorde having already won two Grammys at the ripe old age of 17. But with the 'difficult second album' stereotype to crack, we think Lorde and Ryan could make some SERIOUSLY good music together. Picture: Getty
We haven't had new music from the Biebs in a LONG time - his last album 'Journals' was almost an ENTIRE YEAR ago. Even though he's been collaborating with Cody Simpson as of late, we reckon it's time for some new solo J-Biebs tracks, and who better to help him than the Tedster himself? Picture: Getty
No explanation needed for this one. If these two powerhouses combined their skills, we'd probably end up with the greatest song on Earth. AND WHO WOULDN'T WANT THAT? Picture: Getty
She might be 'Fancy', but we reckon with a bit of help from Ryan, Iggs' next album could be next level amazing.
Ryan's already worked his magic on the One Direction lads, so just imagine what he could do for 5 Seconds of Summer? Although, we don't know if we could handle any of Ryan's swoon-worthy lyrics being sung by Luke Hemmings - it may just kill us. Picture: PA
Ed and Ryan are both incredible songwriters, so we can't help but wonder what sort of music they'd come up with if they collaborated together. Like a 'Thinking Out Loud' and 'I Lived' mash up? WE CAN'T.
We absolutely ADORE Sam Smith and his music (even though it makes us cry on the tube, and that's a bit embarrassing). But if Ryan could inject a couple more uptempo tracks to his collection, that would be the cherry on the cake. Picture: Getty
Sadly, as much as we'd LOVE this collab to happen, Ryan hasn't been too complimentary about Miley in the past. He recently said of her: "I don't want 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 year-old girls staring at Miley thinking, 'The biggest asset I have is my body, especially if it's naked, and the more naked I get the more successful I can get'". Yeah, so this probs isn't gonna happen. Picture: Getty
Ryan was rumoured to have been working on music with Cheryl in 2010, but sadly our earholes never got to hear the results. So what better way to make it up to us than a 2015 collab, eh? Picture: Instagram
Right, we're not even going to pretend that we're not FURIOUS that Rihanna has STILL NOT RELEASED HER ALBUM. It's been 2 years. Now, we demand that Ryan intervenes, writes her approximately 400 absolute tunes and leaves her to release one a week for the rest of time. We think that's only fair. Picture: Getty
DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK. Or do, whatever. Either way, Selena Gomez is BACK on the music scene, and after surprising us with her total belter 'Heart Wants What It Wants', we think a bit of Tedder magic could help her create one of THE biggest pop albums of 2015. Don't let us down, babes.
