Hot Hitmakers: This Week's Top Songwriters

Oct 10, 2018

This week, nearly 25% of the Hot 100 is occupied by Dwayne Carter (PKA Lil Wayne), an astounding feat, especially for an artist who has not released an album in 5 years. But regardless of that fact, the album soars to No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with 22 of its 23 songs debuting on the Hot 100, also becoming only the 2nd act to debut 4 Top 10 songs simultaneously. 

It's for this reason that Carter rockets to No. 1 in his Hot Hitmaker debut. But he isn't the only songwriter benefiting from the popularity of his newest project. Marco Rodriguez & Gamal Lewis (PKA LunchMoney Lewis) also debut at No. 5 & 14 respectively this week, with Ben Diehl (PKA Ben Billion$) & Billy Walsh returning after a long hiatus at No. 6 & 14.
