Drake's "Toosie Slide" launches at No. 1 on the Hot 100.

OZ hits No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Producers chart (dated April 18), thanks to a pair of production credits on the Billboard Hot 100, including on the list's new leader.

Drake's "Toosie Slide," which OZ solely produced, debuts at No. 1 on the Hot 100, becoming just the 36th single in the chart's 61-year history to have bounded in atop the chart.

Plus, Future's "Life Is Good," featuring Drake, ranks at No. 5 after spending eight weeks peaking at No. 2. OZ co-produced the track with Darius Hill.

OZ, whose real name is Ozan Yildirim, dethrones 30Roc atop Hot 100 Producers, with the latter having solely produced Roddy Ricch's former 11-week No. 1 "The Box," now at No. 3. 30Roc (real name: Samuel Sloade) ruled Hot 100 Producers for nine non-consecutive weeks.

OZ has quickly built an impressive history on Billboard's charts, having produced 15 Hot 100 hits, including three No. 1s: Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode" (2018) and "Highest in the Room" (2019) and now Drake's "Toosie Slide."

As "Room" also debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, OZ becomes the 14th producer to have had multiple songs debut atop the chart. Max Martin is the producer with the most No. 1 debuts, with five (Britney Spears' "3" and "Hold It Against Me"; Katy Perry's "Part of Me"; Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off"; and Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling!").

OZ concurrently places at No. 2 on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart, as he co-wrote "Toosie Slide" with Drake.

Meanwhile, Drake leads Hot 100 Songwriters for the first time (dating to the chart's inception nearly a year ago), thanks to four songwriting credits on the latest Hot 100:

Rank, Artist Billing, Title (songwriters in addition to Drake)
No. 1, Drake, "Toosie Slide" (OZ)
No. 5, Future feat. Drake, "Life Is Good" (Future, Darius Hill, OZ, Ambezza)
No. 38, Chris Brown feat. Drake, "No Guidance" (Chris Brown, Vinylz, 40, J Louis, Teddy Walton, Boi-1da, Nija, Velous, Michee Lebrun)
No. 80, Lil Yachty, Drake & DaBaby, "Oprah's Bank Account" (Earl on the Beat, DaBaby, Lil Yachty)

Drake succeeds The Weeknd atop Hot 100 Songwriters. The Weeknd led for two weeks thanks to the success of tracks from his new LP After Hours, including "Blinding Lights," which reigned for two frames before the coronation of "Toosie Slide."

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).

The full Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts, in addition to the full genre rankings, can be found on Billboard.com.
