Post & Bell Takin' Shots at the Top

May 10, 2018

Two weeks ago, Jermaine Cole broke streaming records with 36.5 million first day streams, earning the title of No. 1 Hitmaker last week. But Cole didn't hold on to his streaming record for long... Post Malone smashed through it just one week later with 48 million first day streams. Logging 461,000 equivalent album sales in its first week, beerbongs & bentleys debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week. And it's not just Post who benefits. 

Among the ranks of the Austin Post's collaborators making moves on this week's Hot Hitmakers are Adam Feeney, Onika Maraj (AKA Nicki Minaj), & debuts Billy Walsh & Andrew Watt. But it's Post's producer, Louis Bell, who takes the No. 1 slot this week. 

Bell makes no small contribution with credits on each and every one of b&b's 18 songs, 9 of which are ranked in the Top 20 of Billboard's Hot 100, breaking a record The Beatles have held since 1964. 

Also new to the chart this week is Adniel Rodriguez Marcos, the sole writer behind El Chombo's "Dame Tu Cosita."
