Benny Blanco, co-writer, 'Moves Like Jagger'
TRACK SALES: 4.1 million
ALBUM SALES: 928,000
TOTAL SONGWRITING ROYALTIES: $457,548
A hot producer who frequently collaborates with Dr. Luke, Blanco often writes portions of the songs he works on, from Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" to Ke$ha's "Sleazy." Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Max Martin colleague Shellback share credit, too, but the sleeper writer on this 2011 smash is Ammar Malik, a Pakistani-American who worked with Levine on Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts" and kept in touch. As far as we can tell, the song's namesake and inspiration receives no royalties whatsoever.
