Next time you’re listening to your favorite Justin Bieber song, or Selena Gomez comes on the radio, I want you to remember the name Justin Tranter.
Who is Justin Tranter you may ask? He’s a singer-songwriter who is responsible for most of the hits on the radio right now. Often working with his writing partner Julia Michaels, he has written songs for artists like Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Gwen Stefani, Fifth Harmony, Kelly Clarkson, Fall Out Boy, and more. He’s had so many hits on the charts lately that when you realize some of the songs he’s written, you’ll be saying “oh HE wrote that too?!”
You might also recognize Justin as the frontman of the glam-rock band Semi Precious Weapons, who toured the world with longtime friend Lady Gaga — and if you haven’t heard them before, you definitely need to.
The rocker has stepped away from the group to focus on songwriting for other artists, a decision that we all approve of. And if you still don’t know who he is, you definitely will by the time you’re done checking out these 10 hit songs Justin is responsible for.
