What about this song? Max wrote that, too.

Basically, Max Martin is a modern genius and y'all should really *respect* him. Just check out his wikipedia page

What's more, Max has been awarded the prestigious Polar Music Prize. To celebrate he's given a rare on camera interview, which also features those he's worked with.

For the music geeks among you, this is SUPER exciting.
