The producer for Post Malone's breakout album, Camila Cabello’s "Havana," many more finishes just shy of the No.1 spot.

Louis Bell's breakout was driven by his collaborations with nine different artists last year, including the release of “Beerbongs & Bentleys,” a track on Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V, and the international hit "Without Me" from Halsey.
