APRA AMCOS is proud to present Joel Little with his 1,000,000,000 List award for Taylor Swift’s track ‘ME!’. This is Little’s fourth Billions Award following ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ by Khalid, ‘Whatever It Takes’ by Imagine Dragons and ‘Royals’ by Lorde.
The collaboration came about backstage at a Broods concert when Little's manager approached Taylor Swift’s team to plant the seed about getting the two together. They were both due to be in New Zealand at the same time, so it only seemed appropriate to get them in the same room. During the reputation Stadium Tour in NZ, Little and Swift ended up hanging out, visiting Little’s studio in Titirangi. He was invited to work with her in New York and the pair began working on songs that would feature on the chart-topping album Lover, released in 2019.
Little has been recognised as one of the world’s top songwriters and producers having worked with top international acts such as Khalid, Imagine Dragons, Broods and fellow 1,000,000,000 List-er, Lorde. With a Grammy Award under his belt and multiple nominations it is with great pleasure that APRA AMCOS celebrate yet another success of his with the Billions Award.
