Mister Tedder and the boys from OneRepublic couldn’t get a hit in 2016, despite serving up arguably some of their best material yet.
They’ve dotted top fives across the planet for the best part of a decade with their incredible pop earworms, but songs like ‘Wherever I Go’ and ‘Kids’ from their latest album ‘Oh My My’ have been spending their days in the lower reaches of the countdown.
Which is a shame. We loved ‘Kids’ in particular this year. Back in late August we wrote of it, “can we just say that golly Ryan Tedder can write a freakin’ amazing pop melody. There’s really nothing we don’t like about this release.”
And that remains true here at the pointy end of the year.
Watch its official video, filmed on the streets of Mexico City, below and relive one of our favourite pop moments of 2016.
It’s our No.09 Pop Single Of 2016… It’s OneRepublic’s ‘Kids’.
