The inaugural class of Secret Genius ambassadors included hitmakers such as Boi1da (Rihanna, Drake, Bryson Tiller), Erika Ender (Luis Fonsi, Justin Bieber), James Fauntleroy (Frank Ocean, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake), Lori McKenna (Little Big Town, Tim McGraw) and J Kash (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth), among others. 

The new batch will be featured in the podcast and Songshops, and honored at the second annual Secret Genius Awards later this year. 

This year, honorees of the global initiative include:

  • Ali Tamposi (U.S.): Songwriter for Camila Cabello, Selena Gomez, Liam Payne
  • Ben Billions (U.S.): Songwriter for The Weeknd, Maroon 5, Beyoncé
  • Benny Blanco (U.S.): Songwriter for Halsey, Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5

Each songwriter will receive a Daniel Ek bobblehead and all the rap caviar they can eat, as well as an invitation to the Secret Genius secret location for assorted top-secret meetings.
