Many may argue that OneRepublic is best known for their song ’Apologize’, and they might be. There have been done several remixes, one was included on the Timbaland album ’Shock Value’ and on the deluxe version of ’Dreaming Out Loud’. The song has also been remixed by country artist Luke Bryan for his album ’Doin’ My Thing’. Under you can hear the song, and it was the biggest radio airplay hit in the history of the Pop Songs radio in North America, with 10,394 plays in one week.
Throughout ’Native’, OneRepublic augments the emotional power of each song with a newly revamped vocal approach. Born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the singer Ryan Tedder grew up singing in church and counts country music and gospel as key influences on his singing style.
When asked in an interview about their album ’Native’ Tedder said that; “It’s so important to us that every album be an evolution, where we make these huge lateral movements with our sound and then from there write a bunch of great songs,” he continues. “It’s definitely a mother of a process, but it’s really the only way for us.”
The song ’Good Life’ which is above was released on November 19, 2010 as the album’s third single in the United States. The popularity of this song was pretty good and have been used in various films, television series and advertisements. The single was a commercial success, peaking at number 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
