One Writer, One Song

Jun 07, 2018

It's not often for a song to have a single writer these days. It's even rarer in the hip hop genre. But Aubrey Graham (AKA Drake) has written exactly that - a song without co-writes, and it debuted at No. 19 on Billboard's Hot 100 this week. 

"I'm Upset" not only catapults Graham to the top of the Hot Hitmakers, replacing Louis Bell after 4 weeks, but also earns him an award only 3 before him have achieved - 6 singles concurrently ranking in the Top 20.

Returning to the chart this week is Daniel Hernandez, following the release and Hot 100 debut of 6ix9ine's "TATI."
