Plus, OZ rules the Hot 100 Producers chart.

Drake returns to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated May 16) for a fourth total week on top, thanks to 15 credits on the latest Billboard Hot 100.

14 of the 15 songs appear on Drake's Dark Lane Demo Tapes, which arrives at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with 223,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. "Toosie Slide," which he co-wrote with OZ, leads at No. 4, followed by "Pain 1993," which he co-wrote with Pi'erre Bourne and Jahmar Carter, new at No. 7.

Drake first topped Hot 100 Songwriters on Aug. 17, 2019, when his Care Package release debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and he logged 10 songs on the Hot 100.

Meanwhile, OZ (real name: Ozan Yildirim) tallies his fifth week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 Producers chart, thanks to four production credits on the Hot 100, all on songs performed by Drake.

OZ solely produced "Toosie Slide" and "Time Flies" (No. 30) and co-produced "Life Is Good" (with Darius Hill; No. 13) and "Losses" (with Sevn Thomas, Elyas, Foreign Teck; No. 51).

OZ has now produced 17 total Hot 100-charting hits, including three No. 1s: Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode" (2018) and "Highest in the Room" (2019) and Drake's "Toosie Slide."

Last week (on charts dated May 9), OZ became the sixth artist to lead the Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers surveys simultaneously.

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.
