Songwriting powerhouse Max Martin has just been awarded another Songwriter of the Year award at the 34th ASCAP Pop Music Awards in Los Angeles. This is Martin’s 10th time receiving the award. This year the Swedish hit-maker was behind Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” and Adele’s “Send My Love (To Your New Lover), among others.
Most recently, Martin’s been working with Katy Perry on her song “Bon Apetit.” He first rose to prominence after a wild string of hit songs in the 90s for artists like the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and Britney Spears.
Ever since, the 46-year-old songwriter has been churning out hit after hit. He’s also worked with Taylor Swift, The Weeknd and others.
Justin Bieber also won song of the year for “Love Yourself,” but he also had a part to play in other songs that were honored during the night, including DJ Snake’s “Let Me Love You.”
