Since the advent of the Hot 100 publisher rankings in the first quarter of 2019, Sony/ATV and Universal Music Publishing Group have been fighting fiercely for market share with the former coming out on top three out of the last four times. In the first quarter of 2020, however, UMPG beat its rival for the second time since the chart launched, with a 20.93% share, compared with Sony/ATV's 18.81%.
Sony/ATV extended its dominance among the quarter's top 100 radio airplay songs, however, ranking No. 1 for the 10th consecutive quarter on the Top 10 Publishers (Radio Songs) chart. (It has been No. 1 in 30 of the last 31 quarters.)
Roddy Ricch's "The Box" is No. 1 on the Top 10 Publishers (Hot 100 Songs) chart, with the most points for the quarter ending April 2, while Post Malone's "Circles" is No. 1 on Radio Songs chart. The top songwriter for the period on both charts: Toni Watson, aka Tones and I, who is credited as the sole writer for her hit "Dance Monkey," the No. 11 radio airplay song and No. 8 Hot 100 song.
