Gian Stone attends the 36th annual ASCAP Pop Music Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on May 16, 2019 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Stone scores his first Hot 100 No. 1 as a producer and second as a writer.

Gian Stone debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Producers chart (dated May 23), leading for the first time thanks to Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's "Stuck With U."

The song, which Stone solely produced, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with 28.1 million U.S. streams, 26.3 million radio audience impressions and 108,000 sold in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The duet earns Stone his first career No. 1 on the Hot 100 as a producer, and second career production entry, after Jonas Brothers' "Like It's Christmas," which reached No. 44 this past winter.

Stone also co-wrote "Stuck With U," with Grande, Bieber, Freddy Wexler, Skyler Stonestreet, Whitney Phillips and Scooter Braun (who is, more famously, Grande and Bieber's managers, among other endeavors). The song is Stone's fourth career Hot 100 entry as a writer and second No. 1, after Maroon 5's seven-week leader "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, in 2018. Stone co-wrote "Girls Like You" with Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Cardi B, Jason Evigan, Cirkut and Starrah.

Stone also co-wrote "Like It's Christmas" and Marshmello and Halsey's new collab "Be Kind," which places at No. 33 on the Hot 100 after debuting at No. 29 last week.

Stone succeeds OZ atop the Hot 100 Producers chart, after the latter led for five consecutive weeks thanks to his contributions to Drake's "Toosie Slide" and Future's "Life Is Good," featuring Drake. OZ (real name Ozan Yildiram) ranks at No. 2 this week.

Over on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart, Drake rules for a fifth total week, as he tallies eight songs on the Hot 100, led by "Toosie Slide" at No. 8.

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).
