Hot Hitmakers: Julian Bunetta, Charlie Puth & Jacob Kasher Stake Claim on the Charts

Jun 20, 2017

With the Top-10 seats on the chart remaining virtually unchanged for yet another week, we instead point our attention to the bottom half of the chart which welcomes three new-comers to the action. 

Julian Bunetta, the producer for Niall Horan's second post-One Direction single "Slow Hands", joins the rankings claiming seat No.18. Having appeared as a songwriter on One Direction's last studio album "Made In The A.M." it's no surprise that Bunetta has been a strong partner in the solo careers of most of the original members. Bunetta also appears for his work with country music artist Thomas Rhett who's song, "Craving You" was released to country radio in early April.

Following closely behind Bunetta, Charlie Puth & co-writer Jacob Kasher take seat No. 19 for hit song "Attention." Charlie Puth, a Berklee College alumni, was originally signed by Ellen Degeneres. He first received attention for hit single "See You Again" which was featured in the Fast & Furious franchise as an honor to the late Paul Walker.
