You'd be surprised how seemingly easily writing a pop hit comes to these stars...
From Taylor Swift to Sam Smith, it seems that some of our all time favourite hits were actually created in a matter of minutes! We know, this really puts that Year 8 music assignment we struggled to pen for weeks to absolute shame...
Check out which of our favourite pop songs were written in just a matter of MINUTES:
This is the time it takes us to finish our Subway. Seriously Sia wrote a HUGE song for Rihanna in this time.
Of course she did, is there anything Taylor doesn't excel at?
This is royally impressive - and it sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
Twenty minutes! Blue Ivy probably takes longer than that to pick her #OOTD.
Who knew this song would go on to be such a massive world wide hit, after hearing Ed wrote the track in a mere 20 minutes?!
40 mins = our commute home from work. If only we could be this productive on the train.
Sometimes inspiration strikes and within half an hour you've got a hit!
We can barely keep our shower to thirty minutes in a morning and in that time Charlie XCX has hashed out a massive pop tune.
Only Kanye could produce so much talent in such a short amount of time. And be so modest about it...
We must have listened to this song on a loop for about ten minutes straight. As if it only took that for Adele to write the James Bond anthem?!
And we're still dancing to it.
We don't know if we're impressed or cheated - so much emotion, so little time!
The latest James Bond track apparently took half the amount of time that 'Stay With Me' took, but even if that makes it just half as successful Sam's Big Top 40 chart-topper, it'll still sell almost 10 MILLION copies worldwide!
Lyrics like 'Da-doo-doo-doo just dance" sometimes just write themselves.
Proof that Queen Bey is an over-achiever in life, she features on this list twice, natch. She had to rush off to watch her hubby in concert so took just a quarter of an hour to record one of her biggest hits. Casual.
