Songland Season 2 Given the Green Light by NBC

-

NBC has given the green light to Songland Season 2, the network announced today. So far this summer, the songwriting competition series is averaging 5.1 million viewers, making it the summer’s #1 most-watched new alternative series.

Songland has produced multiple chart-topping hits, including six songs that have achieved a No. 1 ranking on an iTunes music chart. The show provides viewers with the unique ability to immediately download or stream the winning song following the episode, which has quickly propelled each of the Songland songs to the top of the charts.

The hit songs include “Greenlight” by Jonas Brothers, “Better Luck Next Time” by Kelsea Ballerini, “Be Nice” by Black Eyed Peas, “Shadow” by Macklemore ft. IRO, “Solo Quiero (Somebody to Love)” by Leona Lewis, Cali y El Dandee and Juan Magán, and “We Need Love” by John Legend.

The series’ innovative format takes an inside look at the creative process behind songwriting, and each episode provides one up-and-coming songwriter the opportunity to have their song recorded by a chart-topping artist and released immediately after the episode airs worldwide. Songland season one guest recording artists include Jonas Brothers, John Legend, Meghan Trainor, Macklemore, Charlie Puth, Kelsea Ballerini, will.i.am, OneRepublic, Aloe Blacc, Old Dominion and Leona Lewis.

The show features powerhouse producer-mentors Ryan Tedder (lead singer of OneRepublic and Grammy Award-winning producer of Adele, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Jonas Brothers), Ester Dean (Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer of Rihanna, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj) and Shane McAnally (Grammy-winning songwriter and producer of Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson and Sam Hunt with 40 #1 country records).
