The weekly Dance/Electronic Songwriters and Dance/Electronic Producers charts are based on total points accrued by a songwriter and producer, respectively, for each attributed song that appears on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart; 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).
