But, Look no further as there are great hits from both partnerships no one could have given a chance of its success.

4. One Republic & Timbaland – Apologize

Ryan Tedder vocals here was off the hinges and you don’t expect less from one of the greats in Music production Timbaland. From the beat to the vocals and the flow, You are bound to like the song. Apologize is the debut single written by OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder for OneRepublic’s debut album Dreaming Out Loud. The song was a major hit internationally, reaching number one in 16 countries, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Sweden, Turkey, and the Netherlands, as well as staying at number one for eight consecutive weeks on the Billboard Pop 100 chart. The song peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, staying in the top-10 for 25 weeks, and spent 13 weeks at number one in Canada. Timbaland remixed the song for his second studio album, Shock Value (2007). This version, also produced by Greg Wells, included an extra line of percussion, New backing vocals, and added sound samples, In addition to sound mixing and various other minor changes. The guitar solo after the second verse was omitted, completing its transformation to a more R&B style to fit with Shock Value. When the remix debuted, on the back of the strong Timbaland name, radio outlets announced the artist for the song as “Timbaland” or “Timbaland with OneRepublic”. Here is the twist, The song became more popular with the remix.

Yes! They made it. The group Linkin Park brought a new style of rock music that fits right with the millennium era as it was widely accepted, especially from the album “Meteora”. It’s got hits back to back. Now, back to Busta before I derail the subject matter. How do you fuse Rock and Rap music together?. This group started it with Mike Shinoda throwing in the rap to some of their tracks and obviously a lot of has ended up as good songs. Busta Rhymes, of course, is a renowned great in the game of Rap music in that time and this partnership did not disappoint. The song debuted at number 14 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Rhymes’ 12th and Linkin Park’s 10th top 20 hits in the United Kingdom.

U2 are like the Fine Wine of Rock Music to me based on their achievements. They have been around for a while and recorded repeated success over the years. When I first heard the Original track by U2, I said to myself what could be better because its reception was awesome and along came the awards and chart-topping. The song can be compared to the all-star song “We are the World”. But then something happened in 2006. Mary J. Blige popped up in. After being invited to join the group on stage at their New York gig in 2005, Blige performed the track with U2 and received a standing ovation. The song was then recorded featuring Blige on lead vocals, with Bono supplying additional vocals and the band performing the music. It was released on 3 April 2006, The song was a major commercial success in Europe, reaching number two in Ireland and the United Kingdom and topping the Norwegian Singles Chart for six weeks.
