Doja Cat also adds a second week at No. 1 on the Oct. 23-dated chart.

On the Hot 100 Producers chart, Dan Nigro tallies a record-extending 26th week at No. 1, thanks to his production on Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” (No. 6 on the latest Hot 100), “Traitor” (No. 21) and “Deja Vu” (No. 31). He co-produced “Good” with Alexander 23 and solely produced the latter two hits.

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).
