Steve Lacy rises to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 Producers chart (dated Oct. 1), becoming the top producer in the U.S. for the first time, thanks to three charting hits on the Billboard Hot 100 that he solely produced.
“Bad Habit” ranks at No. 2 on the Hot 100, followed by “Static” and “Dark Red” at Nos. 82 and 95, respectively. “Bad Habit” holds at its highpoint with 37.8 million radio airplay audience impressions, 19.6 million official streams and 2,000 sold in the U.S. in the Sept. 16-22 tracking week, according to Luminate. The single rebounds for a fifth week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart and becomes Lacy’s first Radio Songs top 10 (13-8).
“Static” rises 94-82 in its third week on the Hot 100, reaching a new high, while “Dark Red” debuts. The three songs mark Lacy’s first entries on the chart as a recording artist. Previously, he earned three production credits on the survey: on J. Cole’s “Foldin Clothes” (No. 30 peak, 2016); Kendrick Lamar’s “Pride.” (No. 37, 2017); and Brent Faiyaz and DJ DaHi’s “Gravity,” featuring Tyler, The Creator (No. 71, 2021).
Lacy succeeds MAG atop Hot 100 Producers, after the former spent 13 weeks at No. 1 thanks to his work on Bad Bunny’s album Un Verano Sin Ti.
On the Hot 100 Songwriters chart, Nicky Youre logs a third week at No. 1 thanks to his breakthrough single “Sunroof,” with dazy. The song holds at its No. 4 best on the Hot 100.
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).
