Carnage (who has also produced hits under the moniker GORDO) has been churning out Billboard-charting hits for almost a decade, although his credits on Honestly, Nevermind spark his first appearances on the Hot 100. He’s also earned two entries on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as a recording artist: “Bricks,” featuring Migos (No. 48, 2015), and “I Shyne,” with Lil Pump (No. 49, 2018).
Carnage has also charted two albums on the Billboard 200: Papi Gordo (No. 184, 2015) and his EP Step Brothers, with G-Eazy (No. 81, 2017). That’s in addition to his Top Dance/Electronic Albums Miami 2014, with Sunnery James, Ryan Marciano Mync, Wayne and Woods (No. 10, 2014), and Papi Gordo (No. 1, one week, 2015).
Meanwhile on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart, Drake returns to No. 1 for an 11th week on top, thanks to 14 writing credits on the Hot 100 (13 from Honestly, Nevermind, plus “Wait for U,” with Future and Tems). Dating to the Hot 100 Songwriters chart’s June 2019 start, Drake ties Dan Nigro for the fifth-longest reign, after Olivia Rodrigo (22 weeks), Lin-Manuel Miranda (15), Johnny Marks (14) and Finneas (12).
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).
