The band achieved its first commercial success on Myspace as an unsigned act. In late 2002, after OneRepublic played shows throughout the Los Angeles area, several record labels approached the band with interest, but the band signed with Velvet Hammer, an imprint of Columbia Records.

In 2007, OneRepublic released their debut album, Dreaming Out Loud. Its lead single, “Apologize”, was remixed by Timbaland, becoming a huge international success, reaching number one in sixteen countries and subsequently earning them a Grammy Award nomination. The second single, “Stop and Stare”, mirrored its predecessor’s success. The album was later certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The band’s second album, Waking Up (2009), produced the singles “All the Right Moves”, “Secrets”, “Marchin On”, and “Good Life”, with the last reaching the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100.

OneRepublic’s third album, Native (2013), became the band’s first top ten album on the Billboard 200, and highest-charting album to date, charting at number four. The lead single, “If I Lose Myself”, charted within the top ten in several countries, while the album’s third single, “Counting Stars”, became the band’s most successful single in recent years, obtaining top-five placements in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, the US, and the UK. This marks their highest-charting single in the United Kingdom to date. It also peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100, matching their highest peak of “Apologize” in 2007.

On October 7, 2016, OneRepublic released Oh My My, their fourth studio album, which featured a number of collaborators, including Cassius, Peter Gabriel, and Santigold. Preceded by the singles “Wherever I Go”, released on May 13, 2016, and “Kids”, released on August 12, 2016, it was recognized as a change in their sound from previous albums by critics and by the band. In 2017, the band released the singles “No Vacancy”, “Truth to Power”, “Stranger Things” with Kygo and “Rich Love” with Seeb. Their fifth studio album, Human, was released in 2021.

The band has sold over 16 million records worldwide. And they are bringing all that magic to South Africa in 2022!
