Pop music has been successful ever since. During the last two decades there’s this songwriter who made a mark in music industry after he had written some of the biggest pop hits during the period. It was no other than this pop genius Mr. Max Martin.
Max is the mastermind in formulating pop hits of Backstreet Boy, NSYNC, Britney Spears, etc. during the late 1990s and early 2000s. He had also produced some dance and rock hits for many artists.
Here’s the twelve list I made which became iconic hits:
Britney Spears- …Baby One More Time
Who can forget this song that introduced Britney to the pop music scene? This song was a staple in music charts worldwide when it reached the summit and opened a way for pop music to dominate the charts during that era.
Katy Perry ft. Snoop Dogg- California Gurls
Katy Perry just scored her second number through this song. Actually, it’s the second time for Katy Perry to top the charts with co-songwriting with Max Martin.
