According to a report made by Music Business Worldwide, Atlanta-based music producer Metro Boomin was the USA’s biggest hit songwriter of Q1 2017, beating out Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran for the top spot.

The accolade is based on a point-system with every #1 record being worth 1,000 points, and each subsequent placing diminishing by 10 points per position (TL;DR the #1 song on the charts is worth 1k points, #100 song is worth 10 points).

Metro placed nine Hot 100 hits in the first three months of the year including Congratulations, Bad and Boujee, Mask Off, Tunnel Vision & Bounce Back, earning him the coveted top seed for songwriters.
