Over on the Hot 100 Producers chart, Tyson Trax/Dr. Luke (real name: Lukasz Gottwald) hits No. 1 for the first time in the chart's year-plus history thanks to four production credits on the Hot 100 under his production pseudonyms (Tyson Trax or Dr. Luke).

Saweetie's "Tap In," which Gottwald solely produced as Dr. Luke, leads at No. 24, followed by Juice WRLD's "Wishing Well," which he co-produced with ChopSquad DJ, also as Dr. Luke, at No. 42. Doja Cat's "Say So," featuring Nicki Minaj (solely produced as Tyson Trax), is next at No. 48, followed by Doja Cat's "Like That," featuring Gucci Mane (co-produced as Tyson Trax with Mike Crook), at No. 54.

Gottwald has 17 career No. 1s on the Hot 100 as a producer (16 as Dr. Luke, one as Tyson Trax), dating to his first, Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend" in 2007.

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).
