Bell & Swift have each logged 18 simultaneous entries as producers this month.

As Louis Bell rules both the Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts (dated Sept. 21), he also ties Taylor Swift for the most weekly production credits on the Billboard Hot 100 this century.

Bell co-produced 18 songs on the latest Hot 100, matching Swift's total two weeks ago (Sept. 7), when her new LP Lover launched atop the Billboard 200.

As with Swift, a new album sparks Bell's big week, as 16 of his 18 production credits come from Post Malone's new Billboard 200 No. 1Hollywood's Bleeding; the other two are via Halsey's former Hot 100 leader "Without Me" and 5 Seconds of Summer's "Easier."
