Billboard’s staff dropped their 50 Greatest Producers of the 21st Century! Check to see if your favorite producer made the cut!
Are we really surprised that Timbaland, The Neptunes, Max Martin, The Dream, Tricky Stewart and Mike Will Made-It topped the list? Timbaland was the man in the 90s, working with Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, and Justin Timberlake, to name a few.
The Neptunes secured their spot with their 2002 hits “Hot in Herre” by Nelly and The Clipse’s “Grindin’.”
The Dream and Tricky Stewart were off the chain with their R&B catalogue from Rihanna, to Justin Bieber to Beyoncé.
Mike Will Made-It, who is holding it down for the millennials, has hits for days! His clientele included Future, Rae Sremmurd, and Miley Cyrus.
But out of all the great producers on the list, pop music producer Max Martin landed at number #1 for working with Taylor Swift on one of the biggest albums of the 2010s.
