When I Google a song lyrics, Google usually shows it with songwriters at the bottom. For instance, "post malone paranoid lyrics"

Is it possible to find out who took what part in songwriting process? Who created lyrics, who created music, who produced, etc.

    I suspect only possible for individual songs, and that only by further research. – Angst Jun 5 at 17:58

The roles are very often not clearly divided within the team, often the lyrics and the music are a collaborative effort. The producer would not usually get a songwriting credit unless they did contribute to either lyrics or music, although it's possible that the producer or other people in the team might insist on a credit, even if they didn't contribute to the songwriting. The album cover or booklet might have a more detailed breakdown on who contributed what.

  • Or, famously, Lennon/McCartney were credited no matter which one of them wrote the song. – Tetsujin Jul 17 at 10:30
