Here's How Much The Biggest Songwriter In The World Made Last Year

  • Here's How Much The Biggest Songwriter In The World Made Last Year
    POSTED Aug 24 2017


    Max Martin holds the throne in pop music right now. He's behind some of the biggest hits of the past two decades, most recently penning tracks for Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Katy Perry and Adele.

    Swedish newspaper Exspressen has now revealed how much he earned last year and it's a very large amount.

    Martin picked up USD$54 million last year, clocking a rise of 22 per cent from the year before which is pretty good for a songwriter that had his first hit in 1996.

    He's having a relatively slow 2017, having only penned songs for Katy Perry and Lana Del Rey but with a new Taylor Swift album on the way, it's likely he'll have a few more big hits before the year is out.

    Our advice to you: pick up a piano and start songwriting. You could earn $54 mil next year*.

    *Probably not but still.
