Harry Styles hits No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated June 4), while Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson tie atop Hot 100 Producers, thanks to their work on Styles’ new album Harry’s House.
The LP rockets in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 521,000 equivalent album units earned, according to Luminate – the biggest weekly total for an album this year. It earns Styles his third No. 1 – and biggest week in terms of units – following 2019’s Fine Line and his 2017 self-titled set.
Styles leads Hot 100 Songwriters for the first time, thanks to all 13 Harry’s House cuts making the latest Billboard Hot 100; “As It Was” scores a fourth week at No. 1 and the other 12 songs debut. Styles co-wrote each song.

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).
