Dan Nigro

Nigro's collaborator Olivia Rodrigo retains the record on Hot 100 Songwriters.

Dan Nigro spends an 18th week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Producers chart, breaking the record for the most time spent on top, dating to the survey's June 2019 inception.

Nigro rules the latest ranking (dated July 24) on the strength of eight production credits on the Billboard Hot 100, all due to songs from Olivia Rodrigo's debut album Sour. Former No. 1 "Good 4 U" (produced with Alexander 23) ranks at No. 2, while former No. 3 hit "Deja Vu" holds at No. 10. Elsewhere: former eight-week leader "Drivers License" (No. 42), "Traitor" (No. 45), "Favorite Crime" (No. 57), "Happier" (No. 68), "Brutal" (No. 76) and "Jealousy Jealousy" (No. 87).

Nigro also produced Sour's other tracks "1 Step Forward 3 Steps Back" (No. 19 peak), "Enough for You" (No. 14 peak) and "Hope Ur OK" (No. 29 peak).

The eight titles above also help Rodrigo spend a record-extending 17th week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart (which also began in June 2019). Finneas follows with 11 total weeks at the summit, followed by Roddy Ricch (10), Johnny Marks and Nigro (nine each).

Louis Bell previously held the mark with 17 weeks at No. 1 on Hot 100 Producers in 2019, thanks to his work on songs from Post Malone's Hollywood's Bleeding LP, including the Hot 100 No. 1 "Circles" and the top 10s "Wow.," "Goodbyes" (featuring Young Thug) and "Take What You Want" (featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott).

Outside of his work with Rodrigo, Nigro has produced one other Hot 100-charting hit: Conan Gray's "Heather," which reached No. 46 in September 2020. Nigro is the former lead singer and guitarist of As Tall as Lions, whose third and final LP You Can't Take Us With You reached No. 36 on Top Rock & Alternative Albums in 2009.

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).
