Elton Recording Duet with Ryan Tedder

The Undercover King of Pop: He made more than $2.5 million writing songs last year but doesn't know it. Now OneRepublic's lead singer, who claims to never check his money, is music's most prolific writer/producer.

He recently finished two singles for Ariana Grande's sophomore album, a new OneRepublic single called "Love Runs Out," due for release later this spring, two songs for the forthcoming debut from Mikky Ekko (the songwriter and hook vocalist on Rihanna's "Stay") - and, oh yeah, a song for Taylor Swift's next album. "I did one or two other songs that I'm leaving out," he says before later confirming his latest finished product, a dance anthem with vocals from Elton John, produced and co-written with Swedish House Mafia's Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell for an as-yet-undetermined project.
