Ryan Tedder Only Knew About ‘Beyonce’ 90 Minutes Before It Was Released

190a75d90a4b37276f5d16ef4a64ae21 Ryan Tedder Only Knew About ‘Beyonce’ 90 Minutes Before It Was Released

Beyonce‘s stealth fifth album release was a complete surprise to Ryan Tedder. In fact, the man behind King B classic “Halo” and new single “XO” only found out an hour and a half before it hit iTunes. “I knew 90 minutes before it dropped,” he said backstage at The Voice finale last night (December 17). “And I said nothing because I love Beyonce and I don’t want her to hate me.”

“I heard a rumor and then I didn’t say anything,” he continued. “I told my wife, ‘I think Beyonce’s album is dropping in 90 minutes,’ and then I knew that ‘XO’ was on the album.” He was told in advance, however, that the breezy pop song was going to be a single. “I knew it was a single,” he explained. “I didn’t know if it was first or second. I didn’t know anything and then today I found out that it was the lead.”

The One Republic frontman then expressed his admiration for the game-changing diva. Seeing her perform live in Perth, Australia sealed the deal. “Me and my whole band, who are just complete skeptics and like, you know, a bit snobby, we just sat there going … like somehow we have to step our game up and be more like Beyonce.”
