Last Year's Rank: NEW

Pincus and Perry spent 2016 pairing clients with collaborators to make high-profile hits: The Weeknd with Daft Punk for "Starboy"; Major Lazer and MØ with Justin Bieber for "Cold Water," which opened at No. 2 on the Hot 100; and Canadian singer Kai with Australian producer Flume for the breakthrough single "Never Be Like You." Their focus for 2017 is Noah Cyrus (Miley's 17-year-old sister) and Lorde. "She's taking production to a whole new level," says Perry about the follow-up to 2013's Pure Heroine.

Song Stuck in His Head: Pincus: "'God Save the Queen' by The Sex Pistols."
