Only 24, songwriter Benny Blanco feels at home in the top 10
It is hard to listen to pop radio for 10 minutes without hearing a song on which Benny Blanco has played a pivotal role. Since 2008, when the pop hit maker Dr. Luke first recruited him into his stable of songwriters, he has had a hand in six No. 1 hits and seven top 10 hits as a writer and producer, working with such artists as Rihanna, Ke$ha, Katy Perry and Maroon 5.
