The Weeknd logs his second consecutive week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated April 11), thanks to five entries on the latest Billboard Hot 100, all of which he co-wrote (and co-produced).
All five tracks are from his new LP, After Hours, which logs its second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 138,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Leading the way, “Blinding Lights” likewise tops the Hot 100 for a second frame.
Here’s a look at all five of The Weeknd’s songwriting credits on the latest Hot 100:
Rank, Title (co-songwriters in addition to The Weeknd)
No. 1, “Blinding Lights” (Max Martin, Oscar Holter, Belly, DaHeala)
No. 12, “Heartless” (Metro Boomin, Illangelo, Dre Moon)
No. 42, “In Your Eyes” (Martin, Holter, Belly)
No. 61, “After Hours” (DaHeala, Illangelo, Mario Winans, Belly)
No. 85, “Save Your Tears” (Martin, Holter, DaHeala, Belly)
The Weeknd concurrently ranks at No. 6 on the Hot 100 Producers chart, after spending the previous week at No. 1.
Last week, The Weeknd became the first artist to rule the Billboard 200, Hot 100, Artist 100, Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts simultaneously. “It feels like a huge blessing,” he told Billboard of the fivefold honor. “As artists, being recognized for what we do is the ultimate validation.”
Meanwhile, 30Roc (real name: Samuel Gloade) returns to No. 1 on the Hot 100 Producers chart for a ninth total week on top, driven by Roddy Ricch’s “The Box,” which he solely produced. The track spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 and now places at No. 2. Since the Producers chart’s launch last June, only Louis Bell has spent more weeks at No. 1, with 17.
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).
