He's the fourth artist to top the newly-launched ranking.
Blanco Brown rises to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Songwriters chart (dated Aug. 24) for the first time, thanks to his breakout single "The Git Up."
The single, which he solely wrote (and produced), logs its sixth week at No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart and stands at No. 17 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 (after reaching No. 14).
Brown dethrones Drake, who ruled the Hot 100 Songwriters chart last week, thanks to 10 songwriting entries on the Aug. 17-dated Hot 100. Finneas O'Connell and Billie Eilish previously tied at No. 1 for three straight weeks, while O'Connell himself reigned for nine consecutive weeks, dating to the chart's June 15 inception.
O'Connell and Eilish, whose "Bad Guy" hits No. 1 on the Hot 100 for the first time this week, tie at No. 2 on Hot 100 Songwriters.
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/biz.
