Billboard Readies Songwriter Chart

Published: Friday 7th Jun 2019 by David

Billboard is placing the spotlight on the brains behind Pop’s beauties.

Full story below…

We’re extremely excited to acknowledge the top creative forces behind music’s biggest hits on a weekly basis. A songwriter or producer’s influence and importance within the industry and beyond certainly merits recognition beyond our yearly rankings.

The platform is to celebrate songwriters by unleashing the weekly Top Songwriters and Top Producers tally on June 15 by using its existing chart system to track which of the chart’s entries share the same writers.

The bigger the hits…the more points each writer will receive.

The charts are based on total points accrued by a songwriter or producer for each attributed song that appears on the respective charts. As done with Billboard’s yearly recaps, multiple writers or producers split points for each song equally.

      Yeah, hopefully it’s a Top 💯 that will truly acknowledge some of the writers other than the credited artists…I can understand Ed and Drake being at the top right now tho 🖊 📝

    Cardi B writer y’all haters keep hating 👏🏾

    • Fancy BISH June 7, 2019

      Exactly! It’s crazy for people to think she doesn’t write when she has a style all her own! They said the same thing about Kim and Foxy! They must be crazy 😜 Kim and Foxy gets busy! They might get assistance or a male point of view, but they most definitely are writers ✍️ Artists who have their own style or flow most likely contributed to their songs, especially if they’ve been in the game for years 💯 *Plays Foxy Brown No One’s* 🎶

    Billboard has corrupted…. songwriting?

  7. Ropeburn June 7, 2019

    The only problem with this is that scammers like Beyonce have been paying people off to get fraudulent songwriting credits so they can double dip into the profits and get more prestige. This list is gonna be filled with a whole bunch of questionable entries. Especially from the rappers who we know are using ghost writers.

  8. I hate blaccck n whyte June 7, 2019

    Great call, they should have been did that, this is gonna re.ignite the industry music is a business, the writers are about to battle, I wish Whitney was still here.
