Artists are busy and they are put under a lot of pressure when it comes to releasing a single and full album.  They always have to make sure they get their message across in the song both in the studio and when they perform it live.  A lot goes into song writing.  Like you and I, they have their own issues and feelings and most of them like to express all of that through their music.  Also like you and I, sometimes even artists can’t find their words.  This is when they decided to reach out to a “ghost writer” or even another artist for help.  For example, Ryan Tedder of the band One Republic has written a ton of your favorite songs.  Some of those are listed below.

Leona Lewis – Bleeding Love

Beyonce – Halo

Adele – Rumor Has It
