Martin Karl Sandberg, AKA Max Martin, is one of the biggest forces in the music industry even though you may not have heard his name. If you're an up and coming pop star, or American Idol contestant and happen to land him as a producer for your record, congratulations, you have officially "made it".
Max is from Stockholm, Sweden and he's written some of pop music's biggest hits. But in addition to being a musician and composer, he's also a seriously hot record producer. I would say he has the Midas touch, but that would be an understatement. The records he produces have a habit of heading to multiple-platinum status in a hurry.
For this playlist I've put together a bunch of songs from albums that Max has a production credit on. But more that this, many of these songs he has also written, or co-written.
After you read through the list I think you'll agree that Max has done alright for himself!
