Hot Hitmakers: Lil Yachty's "Peek A Boo" and Gucci Mane's "Met Gala" Elevate Four Songwriters Behind The Songs

May 23, 2017

Miley Cyrus debuts a countrified vibe with the recent release of the chart-topper, "Malibu." The summer hit won her a comfortable seat on our chart this week at No. 13 alongside song's co-writer, Oren Yoel. Cyrus appears to be "returning to her roots" with this recent endeavor.

Donald Glover, also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, takes the No. 20 seed alongside co-writer Ludwig Göransson for hit song "Redbone." Göransson is a Swedish composer who has worked alongside Glover in past endeavors such as Glover's TV sitcom "Community."
