Who is this famous man I hear you ask? Well he is a guy called Max Martin and if you are anything like me, you will not have heard his name until seeing this post.
The below video goes into detail about who Max Martin is and his incredible catalogue of songs.
It seems he is happy to stay out of the limelight but I still feel like he should be celebrated for his amazing body of work. Fair enough some of these songs are not everybody’s taste but they are all hugely successful. Max has definitely got the secret sauce.
