5 of Our Favorite Shellback Hits

When one of the world’s best songwriter/producers calls you in for a collaboration, you know you’re doing something right.

Karl Johan Schuster, more widely known at Shellback, met Max Martin when he was 16 years old. At the time, Schuster was focused on indie rock and death metal, but Martin wanted to see what would happen if Schuster’s creative mind turned to pop.

The duo went on to co-write Britney Spears 2009 single “If U Seek Amy” and Pink’s 2008 Billboard No. 1 hit “So What.”

Fourteen Billboard Top 10 hits, 10 No. 1s and two Grammys later, the whole pop music thing seems to be working out just fine.

Here are five of our favorite Shellback hits.
