Following the Billboard Hot 100 debut of Post Malone’s ‘Rockstar’, Shayaa Abraham-Joseph rises to rockstar status on our weekly chart

Shayaa Abraham-Joseph, otherwise known as 21 Savage, has won the title of top songwriter of the week. He replaces Jahseh Onfroy, who held the title for the past three weeks. Abraham-Joseph’s co-writing credit on Post Malone’s Rockstar (an unexpected hit from Malone, who had been written off as a novelty in 2016), rose to the No 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 following its release last week. Abraham-Joseph’s rise is aided by his song Bank Account and intrigue surrounding his various run-ins with the law.
