Lin-Manuel Miranda, Greg Kurstin Reach New Milestones on Hot 100 Songwriters, Producers Charts

Lin-Manuel Miranda tallies a 12th week at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated April 9), continuing his command thanks to the success of multiple hits from the Encanto soundtrack.

Miranda lands five songwriting credits on the latest Billboard Hot 100, all via Encanto. Notably, Miranda is credited as the only songwriter on all five tracks, helping boost his points total on Hot 100 Songwriters.

Leading his haul is former five-week Hot 100 No. 1 “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” at No. 8. Here’s a full recap:

Rank, Artist Billing, Title

  • No. 8, Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz & Encanto Cast, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” (peaked at No. 1 for five weeks)
  • No. 39, Jessica Darrow, “Surface Pressure” (No. 8 peak)
  • No. 60, Stephanie Beatriz, Olga Merediz & Encanto Cast, “The Family Madrigal” (No. 20 peak)
  • No. 65, Sebastian Yatra, “Dos Oruguitas” (No. 36 peak)
  • No. 76, Diane Guerrero & Stephanie Beatriz, “What Else Can I Do?” (No. 27 peak)

With his 12th week at No. 1, Miranda ties Finneas for the third-most weeks spent atop the Hot 100 Songwriters chart, dating to its launch in 2019. Olivia Rodrigo has led the longest – 22 weeks – followed by late holiday hitmaker Johnny Marks (14).

“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is the longest leading Hot 100 No. 1 from a Disney film, and as of the latest April 9-dated chart, it now holds the distinction as the top Disney Hot 100 hit in the chart’s history, per Billboard‘s Greatest of All Time methodology.

Elsewhere, Glass Animals frontman Dave Bayley spends a 50th week in the Hot 100 Songwriters top 10, placing at No. 2, thanks to “Heat Waves,” which he solely wrote, as the track tops the Hot 100 for a fifth week.

Plus, 15-year-old Latin singer Yahritza Martinez debuts at No. 7 on Hot 100 Songwriters, as Yahritza y Su Esencia’s “Soy El Unico” soars in at No. 20 on the Hot 100 and No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs. The song, whose profile has surged on TikTok, arrives as the highest charting regional Mexican entry ever on the Hot 100.

On Hot 100 Producers, Greg Kurstin returns to No. 1 for a 14th total week on top, thanks to four production credits on the Hot 100. Here’s a rundown:

Rank, Artist Billing, Title

  • No. 12, Adele, “Easy on Me”
  • No. 44, Tate McRae, “She’s All I Wanna Be”
  • No. 52, Maren Morris, “Circles Around This Town”
  • No. 80, Tate McRae, “Chaotic”

Kurstin breaks out of a tie with Joey Moi for the third-most weeks spent at No. 1 on Hot 100 Producers, after Dan Nigro (27) and Louis Bell (17).

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).
