And The Winner Of The Hottest 100 Is…

It's all over for another year.

Triple j 2020 Hottest 100 2020

Billie Eilish has become the first solo female artist to be crowned winner of triple j’s Hottest 100, with her track ‘bad guy’ landing at #1.

She beat out strong competition in Denzel Curry’s ‘Bulls On Parade’ cover, Thelma Plum’s ‘Better In Blak’, and Mallrat’s ‘Charlie’. Flume and Vera Blue narrowly missed out, landing at #2 with ‘Rushing Back’.

It was a strong year for solo female acts in the top ten, with Thelma Plum’s ‘Better In Blak’, Mallrat’s ‘Charlie’, and G Flip’s ‘Drink Too Much’ all featuring in the top ten. The top five tracks all featured female vocalists, and Plum has become the highest ranking Indigenous artist in Hottest 100 history.

It was the biggest year for voting on record, with a staggering 3,211,596 votes counted, a 16.4 percent increase on last year. Sixty-five songs were from Australian artists, just one notch below the record which was set in 2016. Seventeen artists made their debut this year, and nine artists completed a hat trick — having appeared in the countdown three years running.
