Lizzo & Ricky Reed Tie at No. 1 on Hot 100 Songwriters Chart

Lizzo and Ricky Reed both ascend to No. 1 for the first time on Billboard's Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated Nov. 23), thanks to Lizzo's two hits currently in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Lizzo and Ricky Reed both ascend to No. 1 for the first time on Billboard‘s Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated Nov. 23), thanks to Lizzo’s two hits currently in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

“Good as Hell,” which the pair co-wrote, ranks at No. 4 on the Hot 100, as it logs its first week in the top five, while Lizzo’s former seven-week No. 1 “Truth Hurts” follows at No. 6. Lizzo and Reed co-wrote the latter song with Tele and Jesse Saint John.

Reed and Lizzo dethrone DaBaby on Hot 100 Songwriters, as the rapper dips to No. 3 after reigning for six weeks.

This week’s tie atop Hot 100 Songwriters isn’t the first, as Billie Eilish and Finneas shared the No. 1 spot for three weeks in July and August, when Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” which they co-wrote, was ranking in the Hot 100’s upper reaches, including at No. 1 for a frame (Aug. 24).

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.

Reed concurrently tallies a third week at No. 1 on Hot 100 Producers, becoming the fourth act to rule the Producers and Songwriters lists simultaneously, following Louis Bell (for three weeks in September and October); Finneas (alsothree, in June, when the surveys launched); and Taylor Swift (one week, September).

Reed commands Hot 100 Producers thanks to “Good as Hell” and “Truth Hurts,” as he’s credited as the sole producer of the former and co-producer of the latter with Tele.
