In 2007, OneRepublic, founded by lead singer Ryan Tedder and lead guitarist Zach Filkins, released their debut album, Dreaming Out Loud. Its lead single “Apologize” was notably remixed by Timbaland, becoming a huge international success, reaching number one in sixteen countries, and subsequently earning the group a Grammy Award nomination. Their second single, “Stop and Stare” mirrored its predecessor’s success. The album was later certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. The band’s second album, Waking Up (2009), produced the successful singles, “All the Right Moves”, “Secrets”, “Marchin On”, and “Good Life”, the latter reaching the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100.
OneRepublic’s third album, Native, released in 2013, became the band’s first top ten album on the Billboard 200, and highest charting album to date, landing at number four. The lead single, “If I Lose Myself” charted within the top ten in several countries, while single, “Counting Stars”, became an instant success, obtaining top five placements in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, the U.S. and the UK, and peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100, matching their highest peak of “Apologize” in 2007.
OneRepublic’s highly anticipated fourth album “Oh My My released on October 7, 2016 and debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 – the band’s highest charting debut yet. Ryan Tedder calls it their “ultimate playlist,” including singles “Wherever I Go,” “Kids” and “Let’s Hurt Tonight.”
