Lil Baby Back Atop Hot 100 Songwriters Chart, Section 8 Debuts

Lil Baby returns to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated June 27) for a second total week on top, thanks to five songwriting credits on the latest Billboard Hot 100.

The rapper’s new single “The Bigger Picture,” which he co-wrote with Section 8 and Noah Pettigrew, debuts at a career-best No. 3 on the Hot 100, powered most heavily by 39.1 million first-week U.S. streams, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Here’s a look at all five of Lil Baby’s songwriting credits on the latest Hot 100:

Rank, Title (songwriters in addition to Lil Baby)
No. 3, “The Bigger Picture” (Section 8, Noah Pettigrew)
No. 27, “We Paid,” with 42 Dugg (Section 8, 42 Dugg)
No. 37, “Emotionally Scarred” (Twysted Genius)
No. 78, “Grace,” with 42 Dugg (Zachary Thomas, 42 Dugg)
No. 95, “All In” (Quay Global)

Lil Baby first ruled the Hot 100 Songwriters chart dated March 14, when his LP My Turn debuted atop the Billboard 200. The set tallies its third week at No. 1 on the latest list.

Frequent Lil Baby collaborator Section 8 (real name: Rai’Shaun Williams) debuts at No. 3 on Hot 100 Songwriters, thanks to his writing credits on Lil Baby’s “The Bigger Picture” and “We Paid.” As Section 8 also produced the two songs, he concurrently debuts at No. 3 on the Hot 100 Producers chart.

SethInTheKitchen (real name: Ross Portaro) notches his second week at No. 1 on Hot 100 Producers, thanks to his work on DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, which he solely produced. “Rockstar” ranks at No. 2 on the Hot 100 after two weeks at No. 1, as 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj’s “Trollz” launches at the summit.

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).

The full Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts, in addition to the full genre rankings, can be found on Billboard.com.
