Take a Daytrip has logged a notable production history on the Hot 100 dating to its debut credit, Juice WRLD's "Legends," in 2018. The duo has produced 19 total Hot 100 hits, including a pair of No. 1s: The Scotts, Travis Scott and Kid Cudi's "The Scotts" in 2020 and "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)" this April. The pair has also reached the top 10 with Sheck Wes' "Mo Bamba" in 2018 (its second production credit; No. 6 peak), Lil Nas X's "Panini" (No. 5; 2019).

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).
