Ryan Tedder hails Camila Cabello's songwriting skills
Ryan Tedder has been busy in the studio making new music with Camila Cabello recently, and says the star is one of 'the most talented' young artists around.
Tedder is a songwriting mastermind, who has penned tracks for Taylor Swift, Madonna, U2, Adele, Beyoncé, Maroon 5, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson and many more.
The OneRepublic frontman told Newsweek this week that he foresees a promising future for Cabello. He admitted:
"I’ve heard three records, including the two I’ve done.
“She walked in and played me (three tracks) and said, ‘Here’s just three things I have’. I was so intimidated. She was so good. She’s not only an incredible singer, but she’s also the most talented young artist I think I’ve worked with in songwriting in the longest time. Her songwriting skills are unbelievable.
“It’d be an injustice if she didn’t write her whole album, or co-write it, because she’s such a good writer. She’s been the most shocking - when you work with a girl from a girl group, you don’t know what to expect. I just sent her a new song and we’re both ecstatic about it.”
Cabello has been working on her debut album since leaving Fifth Harmony last December, and she has already turned to some of the biggest names in the music business for her solo record.
The Cuban-American singer has collaborated with the likes of Max Martin, who co-produced and co-wrote Taylor Swift's hit single, 'Bad Blood,' as well as Katy Perry's, 'California Gurls'. She has also been busy writing songs with Major Lazer's Diplo.
With so much talent in her young bones already, we cannot wait for her new album to drop.
