Justin Bieber

He tallies 13 songwriting credits on the latest Hot 100.

As Justin Bieber makes history as the first solo male to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and the Billboard 200 albums chart simultaneously, he also hits No. 1 on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart for the first time.

As previously reported, Bieber's "Peaches," featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, launches atop the Hot 100 and parent LP Justice soars in atop the Billboard 200.

Bieber tops Hot 100 Songwriters thanks to 13 credits on the latest Hot 100, led by "Peaches," which he penned with nine other writers, and his concurrent top 20 hits "Anyone" and "Hold On."

Here's a look at all 13 of Bieber's songwriting credits on the latest Hot 100, all via songs on Justice.

Notably, the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is credited as a songwriter on "2 Much," as the song opens with an excerpt from King's 1963 open letter "Letter From Birmingham Jail": "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." The vocals are from a speech King gave in 1967 in which he reiterated that call for human rights. Another track on Justice, "MLK Interlude," spotlights a longer sermon from King from 1967, titled "But If Not."

On the Hot 100 Producers chart, Dan Nigro tallies a fifth week at No. 1, thanks to his work on Olivia Rodrigo's "Drivers License," which spent eight weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 and places at No. 4 on the latest ranking.

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).
