    Billboard has announced a new weekly chart that will rank songwriters and producers.


    The charts are based on total points accrued by a songwriter or producer for each attributed song that appears on the respective charts. As done with Billboard’s yearly recaps, multiple writers or producers split points for each song equally. The dividing of points will lead to occasional ties for some rankings.

    Is there any worry this punishes people for sharing song-writing credits? Seems like splitting points incentives leaving some names off the writing or production credits because keeping them would mean less points for the big name writers who might care about their position on the chart.
