Plus, country talents Scott Moffatt and Joey Moi debut on Hot 100 Producers.

Finneas O'Connell rules Billboard's newly-launched Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts for a second consecutive week, thanks to four entries on the Billboard Hot 100 that he solely produced, wrote or co-wrote with his sister, Billie Eilish.

"Bad Guy," which he co-penned, places the highest on the Hot 100, at No. 2 (for a third consecutive week), "When the Party's Over," on which he is the only credited writer, ranks at No. 42, followed by "Bury a Friend" (co-writer; No. 58) and "Ocean Eyes" (sole writer; No. 85).

O'Connell also solely produced Eilish's debut LP When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and this week ranks at No. 2.

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).

Elsewhere on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart, Khalid leapfrogs over Billy Ray Cyrus, Lil Nas X, Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jozzy (all tied at No. 6, via Lil Nas X's 11-week leader "Old Town Road," featuring Cyrus) to place at No. 5, thanks to three Hot 100 entries: "Talk" holds at its No. 3 peak; "Eastside," with Benny Blanco and Halsey, stands at No. 27; and "Better" ranks at No. 35.

Over on the Hot 100 Producers chart, Scott Moffatt debuts at No. 3, thanks to his work on Luke Combs' new EP The Prequel, which debuts at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200. Moffatt solely produced all five tracks on The Prequel, two of which land on the latest Hot 100: lead radio single "Beer Never Broke My Heart" (up 38-22) and "Even Though I'm Leaving" (a debut at No. 62). Moffatt concurrently places at No. 1 on the Country Producers chart.

Fellow country producer Joey Moi also debuts on the Hot 100 Producers chart, at No. 10, thanks to a pair of sole producing credits on the Hot 100: Morgan Wallen's "Whiskey Glasses" holds at No. 20 and Florida Georgia Line's "Talk You Out of It" rises 81-78.
