Our latest hot songwriters rundown sees Marshall return on the back of Huncho Jack and Cardi B making ‘money moves’

Quavious Marshall has staged a coup on this week’s Billboard charts, with 10 Hot 100 songs and a No 3 Billboard 200 album. All this is made possible by his new collaborative project with Jacques Webster (AKA Travis Scott), Huncho Jack.

In addition to the seven Huncho Jack songs, Marshall, a Georgia native, also boasts writing credits on Gucci Mane’s I Get The Bag and Migos’ Stir Fry. The hip-hop group, comprised of Marshall, his nephew (Takeoff), and his cousin (Offset), is also credited on MotorSport with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.

Belcalis Almanzar (AKA Cardi B) is no stranger to songwriting fame either. Following the release of Bartier Cardi and her collaboration with Ozuna, La Modelo, she ascends to the No 4 spot.
