Martin Karl Sandberg (born February 26, 1971), known professionally as Max Martin, is a Swedish music producer and songwriter. He became popular in the mid-1990s after crafting a string of hits for pop artists like Ace of Base, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, 'N Sync and Robyn. Some of his earlier hits include "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)", "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)", "I Want It That Way", "...Baby One More Time", "Oops!... I Did It Again" and "It's My Life". His trademark during the second half of the 1990s and the early 2000s was a danceable, keyboard-laden pop sound that blended music styles such as funk, heavy metal and europop. However, with Kelly Clarkson's 2004/2005 hits "Since U Been Gone" and "Behind These Hazel Eyes", Martin stepped back into the spotlight after reinventing himself with a heavier, rock-tinged sound. Since 2008, he has written and co-written 13 number-one hits (most of which he has also produced or co-produced), including "So What" and "Raise Your Glass" by Pink; "I Kissed a Girl", "Hot n Cold", "California Gurls", "Teenage Dream", "E.T.", "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" and "Part of Me" by Katy Perry; "...Baby One More Time", "3", "Hold It Against Me", "Till the World Ends", and "I Wanna Go" by Britney Spears; "My Life Would Suck Without You" by Kelly Clarkson; and the most recent "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift and "One More Night" by Maroon 5. Top-10 singles co-written by Martin in the same period includes "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz, "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love" by Usher, "Whataya Want From Me" by Adam Lambert, "F**kin' Perfect" by Pink, "The One That Got Away" and "Wide Awake" by Katy Perry, "Beauty and a Beat" by Justin Bieber, and "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
