BNYX re-enters Billboard’s Hot 100 Producers chart (dated Oct. 21) at No. 1, becoming the top producer in the U.S. for the first time, thanks to his work on Drake’s new No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, For All the Dogs.

BNYX (known off-stage as Benjamin Saint Ford) is credited as a producer on six songs on the latest Billboard Hot 100: five from For All the Dogs and one from Travis Scott’s Utopia. Leading the pack is the Dogs track “IDGAF,” featuring Yeat, at No. 2. BNYX solely produced the song, helping boost his chart points on Hot 100 Producers.


Here’s a look at all of BNYX’s production credits on the current Hot 100, all of which contribute to his points total on Hot 100 Producers.

Hot 100 Rank, Artist Billing, Title (co-producers in addition to BNYX):

BNYX also re-enters at No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Producers and Rap Producers charts, leading the former for the first time and the latter for a second time.

BNYX has produced seven additional Hot 100-charting songs in his career, including his first two top 10s. Here’s a recap, listed chronologically by peak date:

BNYX concurrently debuts at No. 3 on Hot 100 Songwriters, as he’s also credited as a co-writer on all six of the charted songs that he produced. Drake returns to No. 1 on the chart for a 12th week.

Looking at other Drake collaborators on this week’s Hot 100 Producers chart, 40 re-enters at No. 4, OZ at No. 6, Lil Yachty at No. 7, Harley Arsenault at No. 9 and Jahaan Sweet at No. 10.

Billboard’s 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. 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). Billboard launched its Hot 100 Songwriters and Hot 100 Producers charts, as well as genre-specific rankings for country, rock & alternative, R&B/hip-hop, R&B, rap, Latin, Christian, gospel and dance/electronic in June 2019. Alternative and hard rock joined in 2020, along with seasonal holiday rankings in 2022.

Watch Rick Ross’ New Video for His Drake Diss ‘Champagne Moments’

The Miami rapper takes aim at his former friend in simplistic video.

There’s no need to keep score when it comes to this Drake and Rick Ross beef. The Miami rapper is naturally funny and learned a lot from his time battling the likes of 50 Cent back in 2009. Not only did he respond to Drake’s “Push Ups” diss song in record time, he was nice enough to give us a video to “Champagne Moments” while simultaneously promoting other ventures.

The visuals are simple: Ross can be seen sitting on a stool in the middle of what looks like an airplane hangar with his liquor brands and a flyer for his upcoming car show next to him. He has an old-school Chevy Bel Air in the back, clearly a reference to when he asked Drake if he “had an old-school Chevy, white boy” on Instagram Stories.
