Dating to the Hot 100 Producers chart’s launch in June 2019, Kurstin is the fourth talent to spend at least 10 weeks at No. 1. Dan Nigro has reigned for 27 weeks, followed by Louis Bell (17) and Joey Moi (13).

Kurstin has produced nine Hot 100 top 10s to-date, starting with Kelly Clarkson’s No. 1 “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” in 2012. He’s earned three subsequent leaders: Adele’s “Hello” (2015-16) and “Easy on Me” and Sia’s “Cheap Thrills,” featuring Sean Paul (2016). He achieved his first production credit on the chart via Lily Allen’s “F–k You” in 2009.

Kurstin concurrently ranks at No. 3 on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart (after logging two weeks at No. 1), as he’s also credited as a songwriter of “Easy on Me,” “Oh My God” and “She’s All I Wanna Be.”

Elsewhere on Hot 100 Producers, Dr. Dre and Mel-Man each debut at No. 17 (sharing the spot), thanks to two classics that re-enter the Hot 100. Dr. Dre’s “Still D.R.E.” and “The Next Episode” — both featuring Snoop Dogg — return at Nos. 23 and 37, respectively, thanks to gains following the Super Bowl 2022 Halftime Show, where they performed the songs (which originally hit the Hot 100 in 1999-2000). Dr. Dre and Mel-Man are credited as the co-producers of both tracks.

“Still D.R.E.” soared by 185% to 11.4 million U.S. streams and by 1,000% to 17,700 downloads sold in the week ending Feb. 17, according to MRC Data. “Episode” vaulted by 204% to 8.7 million streams and 1,040% to 20,200 sold, as it soars in at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart.

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).
