Brion, who first broke through on the Hot 100 in 2005 as co-producer of Kanye West’s 10-week No. 1 “Gold Digger,” featuring Jamie Foxx, debuts at No. 4 on the Hot 100 Producers chart, thanks to eight production credits on the Hot 100 from Circles.

Prior to his eight production credits on this week’s Hot 100, Brion reached the chart as a producer of Miller’s “Come Back to Earth” (No. 91, 2018), Frank Ocean’s “Pink + White” (No. 84, 2016), West’s “Gone,” featuring Cam’Ron and Consequence (No. 18, 2013), “Gold Digger” and “Diamonds From Sierra Leone” (No. 43, 2005). Brion has also produced for Fiona Apple, Dido, Aimee Mann, Janelle Monae and Katy Perry, and composed numerous film score, including 1999’s Magnolia, 2002’s Punk-Drunk Love, 2004’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and 2017’s Lady Bird.

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).
