Assisted by Royalty Exchange, we recognise the most successful songwriters behind the biggest hits on both sides of the Atlantic

It’s rare the the popular music landscape changes so minimally, even in so little time as a week. That’s exactly what happened, however, with last week’s top five hitmakers continuing their reign. Few of these songwriters did it alone. It is through collaborative efforts that they are able to achieve a hit.
