NEW YORK, June 3, 2015 -- ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, the world leader in performing rights and advocacy for music creators, today announced that chart-topping songwriter Savan Kotecha has renewed his agreement for representation of public performances of his songwriting catalog.

Kotecha's songs have hit #1 all over the world, selling more than 200 million copies. His credits include such hits as Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do;" Britney Spears' "If U Seek Amy" and "I Wanna Go;" Usher's "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love;" Ariana Grande's "Problem," "Break Free" and "Love Me Harder;" Jessie J's Grammy-nominated "Bang Bang;" One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" and Maroon 5's "One More Night" among others.

Kotecha, who recently worked with The Weeknd on his upcoming single and album, is the recipient of nine ASCAP Awards and two Billboard Music Awards. As talent coach on both the US and UK seasons of Simon Cowell's The X Factor, he has helped budding talents round out their sound. He has been a member of ASCAP since 2011.

"Savan has already become one of the top songwriters of this era, and we are extremely proud to work with him at ASCAP, said John Titta, ASCAP Executive Vice President of Membership. "His ability to collaborate with so many different artists and to craft some of today's biggest pop hooks are proof of his incredible versatility and talent."

"I love being an ASCAP member," said Kotecha. "Their support for me has been phenomenal and their dedication as an organization is inspiring. From standing up for us in Congress to recognizing songwriter achievements on every level, ASCAP is always in our corner."

ASCAP also recently renewed agreements with Max Martin (Pink, Katy Perry, Britney Spears), 2 Chainz, Lenny Kravitz, Garth Brooks, The Doors, Rick James, Richie Sambora, Sara Bareilles and Diplo, among others.
