YC and RealRed are both newcomers to Billboard‘s charts. YC first appeared on the Hot 100 in January 2020 thanks to his production work on Moneybagg Yo’s “Protect Da Brand” (No. 89 peak). He’s also produced songs for Lil Wayne, Kevo Muney and BIG30.

RealRed, who also ranks at No. 11 on Hot 100 Producers, first hit the Hot 100 as a producer this February thanks to Moneybagg Yo’s “Time Today.” He has additionally produced songs for NLE Choppa, Kevo Muney and BlocBoy JB.

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).
