If you're familiar with the name Max Martin, you probably know him as the writer/producer behind the late '90s pop explosion. (He worked on Britney Spears' "...Baby One More time," Backstreet Boys' "Everybody," and *NSYNC's "I Want You Back.") But Martin's career is still going strong. In fact, he's producing more hits today than he was at the height of teen pop mania. In the last five years alone, he's collaborated with Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Maroon 5—while racking up more than a dozen number-one singles.

Here are 10 tracks on which he's worked his pop magic:

Backstreet Boys - I Want It That Way - 98 BPM
Justin Bieber & Nicki Minaj - Beauty and a Beat - 129 BPM

Bon Jovi - It's My Life - 121 BPM
Pink - So What - 126 BPM
Maroon 5 - One More Night - 93 BPM
*NSYNC - Tearin' Up My Heart - 111 BPM
