And just like that, it’s all over for another year — the Hottest 100 of 2020 has been taken out by Glass Animals and their inescapable single ‘Heat Waves’.

Glass Animals beat out the likes of Spacey Jane’s ‘Booster Seat’ and Flume and Toro y Moi’s ‘The Difference’ — which landed at #2 and #3, respectively — to take out the number one spot. A week ago, fewer than 350 votes separated the #1 and #2 spots.

Elsewhere in the top 20 we saw Tame Impala make it in with ‘Is It True’, Halsey with ‘You Should Be Sad’ at #19, and Mallrat making an excellent appearance at #13 with ‘Rockstar’.

‘WAP’, the instant classic from Cardi B featuring Megan Thee Stallion, landed at #6 — the highest position ever for a female rapper and the highest position for a woman of colour in the countdown ever.

The late rapper Juice WRLD featured heavily over the countdown, with tracks at #39 and #40, again at #49, and with The Kid LAROI on ‘GO’ at #60. There were a number of back-to-back efforts, with Lime Cordiale nabbing #26 and #25, and Mac Miller straight afterwards landing at #24 and #23.

Northern Beaches lads Lime Cordiale absolutely dominated the pointy end of the countdown, landing at #11, #16, #20, #25, and #26.

Check out the full list below; the Hottest 200 will be broadcast from 10am tomorrow on triple j.
