Shayaa Abraham-Joseph is a Rockstar Here To Stay

Sep 27, 2017

Shayaa Abraham-Joseph, otherwise known as 21 Savage, has won the title of top songwriter of the week. He replaces Jahseh Onfroy, who held the title for the past three weeks. Abraham-Joseph's co-writing credit on Post Malone's "Rockstar" (an unexpected hit from Malone, who had been written off as a novelty in 2016), rose to the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 following its release last week. Abraham-Joseph's rise is aided by his song "Bank Account" and intrigue surrounding his various run-ins with the law. 

Malone (AKA Austin Post) also debuted on the chart this week with co-writer Louis Bell, who produced and co-wrote both Post's "Rockstar" and "Congratulations."
