David Stewart and Jessica Agombar tie at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated Sept. 5), each ruling for the first time thanks to their co-songwriting credit on BTS‘ “Dynamite,” which soars in at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

BTS earns its first Hot 100 No. 1 and becomes the first all-South Korean act to reign. The track opens with 33.9 million U.S. streams and 300,000 sold in the week ending Aug. 27, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also drew 11.6 million radio airplay audience impressions in the week ending Aug. 30.

“Dynamite” likewise grants Stewart and Agombar their first No. 1 on the Hot 100 as songwriters. The pair previously contributed to one Hot 100 hit, having co-written Jonas Brothers‘ “What a Man Gotta Do” with Ryan Tedder and Joe, Kevin and Nick Jonas. The song, which Stewart co-produced with Tedder, debuted and peaked at No. 16 in February.

Meanwhile, Stewart solely produced “Dynamite,” and he concurrently tops the Hot 100 Producers chart for the first time.

Since the lists’ June 2019 inception, Stewart is the seventh talent to rule Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers simultaneously. He follows Finneas (four such weeks), Louis Bell (three) and OZ, Ricky Reed, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd (one each). The Weeknd and OZ are the only other acts to have achieved the feat this year.

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).
