A Little 'Finesse' Goes A Long Way

Jan 15, 2018

Last week saw the return of Luis Fonsi, Steve Mac, & Johnny McDaid, all on the backs of their 2017 chart topping hits, "Despacito," "Echame La Culpa," "Shape of You," & "What About Us." Some of the most-listened to songwriters on New Year's Eve also included Brian Lee ("Wolves" & "Havana"), who debuts on the Hot Hitmakers chart at No. 16, and Belcalis Almanzar. 

Almanzar (AKA Cardi B) enters the Top 3 this week with the help of her collaboration with Bruno Mars - a remix of Mars' "Finesse" from last year's 24K Magic album.
