TBHits Rules Hot 100 Songwriters & Producers Charts, Thanks to Ariana Grande Hits

Tommy Brown, aka TBHits, claims the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songwriters and Producers charts, leading both lists for the first time thanks to 15 songwriting and production credits on the latest Billboard Hot 100.

Of his 15 writing credits on the Hot 100, 14 are from Ariana Grande’s new LP Positions, which debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 174,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Leading the total, “Positions” ranks at No. 2, a week after debuting at No. 1, and “34+35″ debuts at No. 8.

Along with all 14 songs from Positions, TBHits also co-wrote Justin Bieber’s “Holy,” featuring Chance the Rapper, at No. 11 (after hitting No. 3). That credit helps push him ahead of Grande on Hot 100 Songwriters, where she ranks at No. 2.

Here’s a look at all 15 of TBHits’ songwriting credits on the latest Hot 100:

Meanwhile, Mr. Franks (real name: Steven Franks) debuts at No. 2 on Hot 100 Producers and No. 3 on Hot 100 Songwriters, just behind TBHits and Grande, as he co-wrote and co-produced nine of the songs above.

Since the charts’ launch in June 2019, TBHits is the ninth artist to top Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers simultaneously. He joins Louis Bell, Finneas, Metro Boomin, OZ, Ricky Reed, David Stewart, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd.

TBHits and Grande boast an impressive history on the Hot 100 together, dating to 2016. He earned his first two No. 1s as a co-writer and co-producer of Grande’s “Thank U, Next” in 2018 and “7 Rings” in 2019. “Positions” became his third leader in each role, while “34+35″ marks his seventh top 10.

The weekly Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts are based on total points accrued by a songwriter and producer, respectively, for each attributed song that appears on the Hot 100; plus, genre-based songwriter and producer charts follow the same methodology based on corresponding “Hot”-named genre charts. As with Billboard’s yearly recaps, multiple writers or producers split points for each song equally (and the dividing of points will lead to occasional ties on rankings).
