"Apologize" (marketed in many countries using the British English spelling "Apologise") is a song written by OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder for OneRepublic's debut album Dreaming Out Loud. A remix version was included on the Timbaland album, Shock Value and on the deluxe version of Dreaming Out Loud. The song was the biggest radio airplay hit in the history of the Pop Songs radio in North America, with 10,394 plays in one week, until its record was broken by Leona Lewis's "Bleeding Love," which was also co-written by Tedder. The song was a major hit internationally, reaching number-one in 16 countries, including Australia, Austria, 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 charted in the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent thirteen weeks at number-one in Canada. "Apologize" was ranked #50 on the list of the Billboard Hot 100's All-Time Top Songs list from the chart's first 50 years. It spent 25 consecutive weeks in the top 10, the longest stay there for any song since "Smooth," by Santana which spent 30 weeks in 1999. It was also ranked #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs of the Decade. It remains OneRepublic's biggest hit single in the USA to date.
