Those rumors of collaborations between OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and David Cook and David Archuleta? Not gonna happen. Tedder recently told ABC News Radio that the rumors are running rampant, but they’re just not true:
…No, there are all these rumors swirling about me, and, us and American Idols. And it even says on Wikipedia that I’m working with David Cook and Archuleta. I have not worked with either of them, and I don’t have either of them on the schedule.”
Scratch Ryan Tedder off the list, peeps.
The band OneRepublic released “Apologize”, one of this year’s huge hits. Tedder co-wrote the Leona Lewis mega-hit “Bleeding Love” with Jesse McCartney (who will soon go out on tour with Jordin Sparks–ahh the connections!). He also collaborated with Blake Lewis on several cuts from his debut album Audio Day Dream, including the ill-fated single, “Break Anotha”.
