Ryan's now teamed up with Adam Levine and Maroon 5 on their new album 'V', writing their new hit single 'Maps'
Not only did he write the '21' track, but Ryan also helped to produce the song when they got together in the studio for Adele's most successful album yet. He also helped to compose the opening of 'Turning Tables'. Oh yeh, he also bagged a Grammy for his involvement on the album too!
It was one of the summer feel-good anthems of 2012 and featured on the rapper's second studio album 'Strange Clouds'.
It's Beyonce at her most powerful and has gone down as a true fan favourite with the singer's legion of fans. She also ends each night of her 'The Mrs. Carter Show' world tour with the song. 'Halo' memorably won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2010 Grammys.
"It's honestly probably the most emotional song I've ever been involved in," he told MTV about the track, which he also helped to produce. The song was the lead single on Jennifer's album of the same name.
The 2011 song features vocals from 21 year-old US star Alexis Jordan and was produced by the wonderful Stargate production team.
The track gave Ellie a Vodafone Big Top 40 number one and was featured on the repackaged version of her recent album 'Halcyon'.
It was the hit that catapulted the former X Factor winner around the world and made her a household name. To this day, it has shifted over nine million copies worldwide and was nominated for Record Of The Year at the Grammys in 2008.
The huge pop power ballad has sold close to two million copies in the US alone and gave the female star her third top ten hit on the US Billboard chart. It featured on the 2009 album of the same name.
Taken from J-Lo's sixth studio album 'Brave' - the song failed to match the dizzying heights of some of her previous singles but has still sold half a million copies.
It was Gavin's most successful single since his breakthrough hit 'I Don't Want to Be' seven years earlier. The song was also the lead single from his 2011 album 'Sweeter'.
The track featured on Kelly's fourth studio album 'All I Ever Wanted' and was released as the third single from the record back in 2009.
It was the seventh single taken from the American Idol winner's debut studio album 'For Your Entertainment'. Ryan also produced the song.
The track featured on The Wanted's EP - their debut release in the US following the success of the single 'Glad You Came'.
The song was taken from Adam Levine and co's latest album 'Overexposed' and is one of the most up-beat tracks on the album.
It was one of the later singles on James' second studio album 'Songs for You, Truths for Me' and also features background vocals from Ryan himself.
