Max Martin initially aspired to be an artist but soon shifted his focus towards production after producer Denniz PoP helped him discover his knack for producing. He started working for Denniz Pop's label Cheiron Studios where he produced songs with PoP himself. During this time, he worked on projects like the Rednex song "Wish You Were Here", Ace of Base's second album "The Bridge" and other projects with artists like Army of Lovers, Leila K and 3T. 

He later worked with The Backstreet Boys and produced their song "Quit Playing Games (with My Heart)". He also co-wrote as well as co-produced songs like "Show Me Love" and "Do You Know (What It Takes)" both of which hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. He later became the director of the Cheiron Studios after Denniz PoP died in 1998. However, the studios soon closed down. Soon, Martin and Tom Talomaa came together to establish a new production company called Maratone.

He continued to work with The Backstreet Boys and co-produced seven songs in their album, "Millennium"  which released in '99. He continued to produce more songs for the boyband and other artists like Ariana Grande, Shakira, Adam Lambert, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, and Adele. 

He is currently one of the most powerful and successful figures in the music industry in today's time. His track record to churn out successful music is unparalleled with more than 50 top 10 hits and 23 No.1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100.
