We list the week’s top songwriters behind the biggest hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart

Miley Cyrus debuts a countrified vibe with the recent release of the chart-topper, Malibu. The summer hit won her a comfortable seat on our chart this week at No 13 alongside song’s co-writer, Oren Yoel. Cyrus appears to be ‘returning to her roots’ with this recent endeavor. Donald Glover, also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, takes the No. 20 seed alongside co-writer Ludwig Göransson for hit song Redbone. Göransson is a Swedish composer who has worked alongside Glover in past endeavors such as Glover’s TV sitcom Community.
