Wheezy & Gunna Take OverHot 100 Producers & Songwriters Charts

Gunna lands 13 songs on the Hot 100 from his new album "Wunna."

Wheezy re-enters Billboard’s Hot 100 Producers chart (dated June 6) at No. 1, leading the list for the first time thanks to nine production credits on the latest Billboard Hot 100.

Seven of the nine songs appear on Gunna’s new LP Wunna, which debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 111,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, marking his first chart-topping set.

Here’s a look at all nine production credits for Wheezy (real name: Wesley Tyler Glass) on the Hot 100.

Rank, Artist, Title (Producers in addition to Wheezy)
No. 55, Gunna feat. Travis Scott “Top Floor” (Turbo)
No. 59, Gunna feat. Lil Baby, “Blindfold”
No. 67, Gunna, “Argentina”
No. 70, Gunna, “Met Gala”
No. 78, Gunna, “Nasty Girl / On Camera” (Taurus, Fizzle)
No. 83, Future feat. Travis Scott, “Solitaires” (Mike Dean)
No. 84, Gunna, “MOTW”
No. 86, Gunna, “Gimmick” (Aviator Keyyz)
No. 90, NAV, Gunna & Travis Scott, “Turks”

Wheezy dethrones OZ (real name: Ozan Yildirim), who ruled Hot 100 Producers for six weeks and dips to No. 2. OZ’s rank is powered by his credits on Drake’s “Toosie Slide” (No. 6 on the Hot 100) and Future’s “Life Is Good,” featuring Drake (No. 10).

Wheezy has been one of the most in-demand hip-hop producers over the past several years. He has notched 38 total production credits on the Hot 100, dating to his first, on Meek Mill’s “We Ball,” featuring Young Thug, in August 2017. Two of Wheezy’s entries have reached the top 10, both peaking at No. 6: Lil Baby and Drake’s “Yes Indeed” and Meek Mill’s “Going Bad,” featuring Drake. Wheezy has also produced Hot 100-charting songs by Juice WRLD, Migos and 21 Savage, among others.

As Wheezy also co-wrote all nine of the songs above, he debuts at No. 3 on the Hot 100 Songwriters chart.

Gunna concurrently debuts at No. 1 on Hot 100 Songwriters, thanks to 13 songs on the latest Hot 100, all of which he co-wrote.

Here’s a rundown of all 13 of his entries on the latest Hot 100:

Gunna unseats Future, who led Hot 100 Songwriters a week ago thanks to 13 entries on last week’s Hot 100 from his new LP High Off Life.

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.
