SethInTheKitchen rises 2-1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Producers chart (dated June 20), leading for the first time thanks to his work on DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch.
SethInTheKitchen solely produced the song, which tallies its second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, with 35.6 million U.S. streams, 26 million radio audience impressions and 12,000 downloads sold in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
SethInTheKitchen (real name: Ross Portaro) also co-wrote “Rockstar” with DaBaby and Roddy Ricch, helping him stand at No. 6 on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart.
“Rockstar” is SethInTheKitchen’s first No. 1 on the Hot 100 as a producer and songwriter. He additionally produced DaBaby’s “iPhone,” with Nicki Minaj, and “Really,” featuring Stunna 4 Vegas; the tracks reached Nos. 43 and 63 on the Hot 100, respectively, last October.
SethInTheKitchen succeeds OZ atop the Hot 100 Producers chart, as the latter ranks at No. 5 after ruling for seven total weeks.
Meanwhile, Roddy Ricch rules the Hot 100 Songwriters chart for a ninth week, on the strength of five writing credits on the latest Hot 100. “Rockstar” leads at No. 1, followed by his former leader “The Box” (No. 9; co-written with 30Roc, Adarius Moragne and Aqeel Tate); “High Fashion,” featuring Mustard (No. 24; co-written with Mustard and GYLTTRYP); “Walk Em Down,” with NLE Choppa (No. 44; co-written with Choppa, Loshendrix and CashMoneyAP); and “Cooler Than a Bitch,” with Gunna (No. 89; co-written with Gunna and Tre Pounds).
Ricch is now one week away from tying the record for the most weeks spent atop Hot 100 Songwriters since the chart launched last June. Finneas currently holds the record, with 10 total weeks at No. 1.
The weekly Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts are based on total points accrued by a songwriter and producer, respectively, for each attributed song that appears on the Hot 100; plus, genre-based songwriter and producer charts follow the same methodology based on corresponding “Hot”-named genre charts. As with Billboard’s yearly recaps, multiple writers or producers split points for each song equally (and the dividing of points will lead to occasional ties on rankings).
