“Didn't I” is a song recorded by American pop rock band OneRepublic for their upcoming fifth studio album "Wanted". It was released on March 13, 2020. The song was written by Ryan Tedder, Brent Kutzle, Zach Skelton, James Abrahart & Kyrre Gorvell-Dahlland produced by Ryan Tedder, Brent Kutzle & John Nathaniel. This next single off of OneRepublic’s fifth album Human features a piano based melody in contrast to earlier singles Rescue Me (dance based) and Wanted (string influenced.) It also runs longer, at almost four minutes. Its theme centers around a lost relationship, asking “tell me why good things have to die?”
"Didn't I" is This Week's
Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #24.


The wait is over! OneRepublic’s long-awaited 5th album is called Human and it drops on May 8. The band marked the announcement by releasing a ballad called “Didn’t I.” And it’s probably their best single since “Counting Stars.” Why? Well, it’s a sucker-punch straight to the heart. “Never thought we’d ever have to go without, take you over anybody else — hands down,” Ryan Tedder sings about an ex. “We’re the type of melody that don’t fade out.” Instead of bitterness or blame, the chorus celebrates the good times.

Ryan revealed that the song was inspired by a friend’s divorce in an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music. “I had this idea that when you marry somebody or you choose to be with them, it’s because you’ve had a lot of beautiful moments and somewhere the discord gets in,” OneRepublic’s frontman explained. “But then once you have the distance, and it does break up, and you do go through that divorce, you still have those moments. You look back and you go, you know what? This ended in a disaster, but weren’t we amazing, when we were amazing?”

"How To Be Lonely" is a song by British singer Rita Ora, released as a single through Atlantic Records UK on 13 March 2020. The song was written by Lewis Capaldi, Peter Rycroft & Thomas Mann and produced by Lostboy, Tom Mann & aboutagirl. Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi wrote "How to Be Lonely", but felt he was "Terrible" at singing it, so he gave the song to Ora

"How to Be Lonely" is a mid-tempo ballad in which Ora sings about "battling insecurity and lack of self-worth". Ora has herself spoken about the making of the song, stating that the "song is inspired by lots of different periods of my [Ora's] life; times where I've come to realize that we're all valuable people, something we should cherish, and that while connections are important, we don't ever need the approval of others".
"How To Be Lonely" has gained increased airplay across the Nova Network & also Hit Network stations.& plus airplay on some of major regional radio networks as well. "How To Be Lonely", moves from #57 to #32, making a Jump of 24 places on The Hot 100, which makes "How To Be Lonely" This Week's
Power Hit.


Rita Ora returns with Lewis Capaldi penned new single

British pop star Rita Ora seems to be kicking off the campaign for her third LP. She dropped her sophomore effort Phoenix back in 2018, which included hits like ‘Anywhere’ and ‘Let You Love Me’, and ever since we have heard her on a couple of collaborations, including ‘Ritual’ with dj Tiësto. Her brand new single ‘How To Be Lonely’ was written by a team including Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, who released hits like ‘Someone You Loved’ and ‘Before You Go’.


It is not the first time that Rita Ora releases a single co-written by one of the most popular singer-songwriters of the moment: Ed Sheeran was one of the writers of her 2017 single ‘Your Song’. Just like ‘Your Song’, ‘How To Be Lonely’ is a proper pop tune first and foremost, with a massive sing-and-clap-along type of chorus. Ora’s vocals sound slightly more rough and less polished than they normally do, which suit the loneliness in the lyrics. Is ‘How To Be Lonely’ one of Rita’s best singles to date? Not really, it is a tad too generic and repetitive to call it that, but it is still a bop that could easily become another large hit for her.
