He's the third person to rule the charts simultaneously, after Finneas O'Connell & Taylor Swift.

Louis Bell commands both the Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts simultaneously for the first time, thanks to a supersized week on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Sept. 21).

Bell leads the Songwriters tally for the first time on the strength of 20 writing credits on the Hot 100, with 17 via songs from Post Malone's new Billboard 200 No. 1 LPHollywood's Bleeding.

He paces the Producers survey for an 11th week, fueled by 18 Hot 100 production credits.

Bell also co-produced Nos. 3, 4, 8, 10, 15, 16, 17, 20, 22, 29, 33, 34, 37, 40, 52, 53, 58 and 90 above, as he totals 18 Hot 100 production credits this week.

Bell is the third talent to top both recently-launched tallies simultaneously, following Finneas O'Connell (three weeks in June) and Taylor Swift (one, earlier in September).

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).

Among other moves, Malone himself rises 9-2 on the Songwriters tally, powered by his 17 entries as an artist on the Hot 100, all of which he co-wrote.
