Welcome to the Hall of Fame: A Look Back at Max Martin’s Greatest Hits

Yesterday was a pretty big day in the music industry. Yesterday was the day that seven of the greatest creative musical minds of our time receive one of the highest possible honors — induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Among today’s inductees is our long time friend, Swedish songwriter, record producer and Kobalt client, Max Martin. For over three decades, Max has played a major role in writing and producing for some of the world’s greatest performers such as The Weekend, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Usher, Katy Perry and so many more. During his career he’s won 5 Grammys, been named ASCAP’s songwriter of the year 10 times, and has had a hand in writing 22 Number 1 Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers.

We would like to extend a massive congratulations to Max on all his success. We couldn’t be prouder to work with someone of his incredible talent. In order to properly honor Max’s induction into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame we’ve decided to take you on a ride through some of the greatest Max Martin #1 chart-toppers of all time.
