Hot Hitmakers: This Week's Top Songwriters

Oct 17, 2018

Though it's hardly the first soundtrack to capture audience attention far and wide, A Star Is Born is one of the few recently to be written especially for the film. And for the songwriters involved, it could prove a major windfall with box office revenue surpassing $100 million in just 12 days and a No. 1 Billboard 200 debut.

But it's the 4 songs charging up the Billboard Hot 100 that herald Stefani Germanotta's (PKA Lady Gaga) Hot Hitmakers return at No. 7. And she's not the only songwriter returning this week. Tyler Joseph (of twenty one pilots), Andrew Green, and Daniel Hernandez also rejoin the ranks. 

New this week are Chandler Durham & Sergio Kitchens (PKA Gunna), co-writers on Lil Baby's newest project, as well as Amy Allen, a Berklee alum having written for Halsey & Selena Gomez.
