Hot Hitmakers: Drake Reigns, Sheeran Falls, And Three Debut

Apr 11, 2017

Drake holds the No. 1 spot again, holding strong, while Ed Sheeran fell off the chart completely. Helping that move were the debut of four new songwriters. Michael Busbee co-wrote hits from Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum. Hillary Lindsey worked with him on that Lady Antebellum track, with additional credits for Florida Georgia Line and Lady Gaga. And Lil Uzi Vert landed a spot along with his co-writer Bryan Simmons.
