ADAM LEVINE AND BLACKBEAR JOIN ASCAP
11/4/21

Adam Levine and blackbear are the latest multi-platinum songwriters to sign with ASCAP.

Maroon 5 frontman Levine has co-written multi-platinum hits for the band including “Girls Like You,” “Don’t Wanna Know” and more. They hold a Top 40 record for the most #1 hits among pop duos or groups with 11 #1 entries.

Blackbear, aka Matthew Musto, has also co-written with Levine on their chart-topping single, “Beautiful Mistakes,” which hit #1 at Hot AC and #10 at Top 40.

The pair recently concluded a U.S. tour together. Other blackbear collaborations have include Machine Gun Kelly’s “my ex’s best friend” and All Time Low’s “Monsters,” both of which spent multiple weeks at #1 at radio.

“Adam’s craft as a songwriter has made Maroon 5 one of the top groups of all time on the airplay charts. Matthew has managed the rare feat of conquering the pop, rock, R&B and hip-hop charts with his songs in just a few short years,” said ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. “We are thrilled to have both of these incredible artists join the ASCAP.

“ASCAP is the best advocate for songwriters and their team is committed to helping us maximize our creative potential,” said blackbear. Levine added, “They’re champions of the greatest songs in the world and I am happy to be in business with them.”
