Tyler just topped a huge list for Billboard magazine...

In a fitting end to their biggest ever year, Twenty One Pilots have just hit another huge milestone as Tyler Joseph has been named as the top songwriter on Billboard's Hot 100 list.

The huge success of the singles 'Stressed Out', 'Ride' and 'Heathens' took Tyler to the top spot of the chart which ranks the top 25 songwriters based on Hot 100 success achieved in 2016.


Number 2 on the list was legendary pop songwriter Max Martin with Drake coming in at number 3, 'One Dance' having been the most streamed song of 2016 on the likes of Spotify.

Justin Bieber (#4) and Greg Kurstin (#5) complete the Top 5 with Adele (#6), Mike Posner (#7), Drew Taggart (of The Chainsmokers) (#8), Shellback (#9), and Benny Blanco (#10) rounding out the Top 10.

'Stressed Out' topped the Billboard rock chart for 23 consecutive weeks beginning January 9th, the band also ruling over the Top Rock Album and Top Alternative Album charts with Blurryface. Get full chart stats on the band's huge year via Billboard here.

Congrats TØP - here's to a similarly successful 2017!
