You know Ryan Tedder as the the frontman of the remarkable band, OneRepublic. What you may not know, is that he’s just as successful with his other career.

When Tedder isn’t busy writing his band’s own hits, like ‘Counting Stars.’  He’s writing songs for others. And I’m not talking about any normal songs, or any normal people. Tedder has written and produced for Beyonce, Adele, The Fray, U2 and many others.

Among the songs that Tedder has written, include: ‘Halo,’ the hit song off of Beyonce’s ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’ album, Leonna Lewis’s chart topping song, ‘Bleeding Love,’ and Adele’s ‘Rumour Has It.’

According to Yahoo!, royalties earned from those songs and others, have earned Tedder $2.5 million. So far..

Not too shabby for a second job.

You can catch OneRepublic in Dallas on August 26th.
