Shayne Ward collaborator Ryan Tedder's said he was surprised 'Bleeding Love' was such a massive hit to be honest.
Having a chat with Fault magazine (as quoted here), Teddo mused: "I would’ve bet money against that song being a hit anywhere outside of the UK."
"That’s how cynical I was," he continued. "I had no idea of the expectation that there was for it."
But surely you knew all about Leona's past and her success on the popular television show, The X Factor?
"I didn’t even know till after we did the song that she had been on X Factor."
