Did you know that David Bowie wrote lyrics for Puff Daddy? Or that Bruno Mars wrote a song for Jay-Z and Kanye West? Did you know that R-Kelly wrote songs for Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Whitney Houston and Aliyah? Or that One Republic’s Ryan Tedder has written songs for Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding, Beyoncé, Maroon 5 and James Morrison? I could go on and on, Bruno Mars has written songs for Adam Lambert, Cee Lo Green, Flo Rida, Mike Posner, Wiz Khalifa, Sean Kingston and The Vamps and Lady Gaga has written a song for Britney Spears… And this is just to give a few examples. Plus, Sia with Bruno Mars have the most impressive ghostwriter credentials. Even if these people are credited on the liner notes of an album, nobody reads those, and more importantly, nobody buys albums anymore.
