Harry Styles Rules Top 100 Songwriters Chart – Billboard
Harry Styles reaches No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 Songwriters Chart (dated June 4), while Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson top the Hot 100 Producers, thanks to their work on Styles’ new album Harry’s house.
The LP exploded to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 521,000 equivalent album units earned, according to Luminate — the highest weekly total for an album this year. It earns Styles his third No. 1 — and biggest week by units — after 2019 Thin line and his 2017 self-titled set.
Styles topped the Hot 100 Songwriters for the first time, thanks to 13 Harry’s house cuts making the latest Billboard Hot 100; “As It Was” marks a fourth week at No. 1 and the other 12 songs debut. Styles co-wrote each song.
