Ryan Tedder: 'Demi Lovato's new sound is going to shock everybody'
One Republic star Ryan Tedder has heaped
praise on Demi Lovato, insisting the singer is going to bounce back
from her recent troubles and "shock everybody" with her comeback
The singer/actress stunned fans last year
(10) when she entered rehab to tackle her self-harming and eating
She was diagnosed by doctors as suffering
from bipolar disorder, and has worked hard on her recovery so she
can get back to work.
Lovato has teamed up with singer/songwriter
Tedder for her first album since her troubles hit the headlines,
and the rocker admits he was impressed by the 18 year old's talent
- and insists fans will be taken aback by her new sound.
He tells E! Online, "Demi blew me out of the

the best singers I've ever worked with. Literally, that good... I

about that (her troubles), and this is basically flipping it 180,
saying, 'Oh, by the way, I'm still also just young and want to have
fun.' There's even like a little rap feature on it.
"She doesn't rap on it. I'm going to keep
that (person) a secret. But she's got a couple features on this
album, one in particular that is going to shock everybody. I was
like, 'How did you get this person? They're impossible to get and
you got them!'"
