OneRepublic frontman penned a little old song called ‘Halo’ for Beyonce, which became one of her signature songs and earned a Grammy. And now he thinks they’ve actually topped that with a new track — that’s a combination of ‘Halo’ and ‘Single Ladies.’ To quote the Queen herself, “I don’t think they can handle this.

“Personally the song we did I like more than ‘Halo.’ I think it’s a bigger, better song,” Tedder gushed to Australian radio station Nova (via the Mirror).

He explained exactly why it’s going to be legendary: the ingredients to this musical cake are all the creme de la creme in terms of Bey’s history: Tedder and the-Dream collaborated on songwriting and production for the track, set to appear on her long-awaited next record.

“[The-Dream] did ‘Single Ladies’, I did ‘Halo’ so we thought — what would happen if we just did a song together?”

Still, it may not happen soon. “I don’t know when she’s coming out with something,” Tedder confessed. He added, “I don’t know what the album’s called. All I know is what I’ve heard is amazing.” Well, obviously. This is King Bey we’re talking about!
