Here’s The Winner Of Triple J’s Hottest 100 Of 2019

Written by Laura English on January 25, 2020

Update: The Hottest 200 countdown for 2019 has begun (live updates)

Annnnd that’s a wrap folks. Billie Eilish has taken out the Hottest 100 of 2019 with ‘Bad Guy’.

It’s history in the making too. Billie Eilish is the first solo female act to win the countdown. It’s a record breaking year for women in the top 10 too. We saw 8 women in this year’s 10 with 5 solo acts. The existing record had a total of seven women, but five of those women were features.

And what a bloody huge countdown. There were the highs, there were lows (ya joking, etc), and now the Hottest 100 of 2019 is done and dusted.

Denzel Curry’s ‘Bulls on Parade’ Like a Version and Billie Eilish’s ‘Bad Guy’ were predicted for the top #1 and #2 spots respectively. So, Curry’s LAV coming in at #5, and Flume sneaking in for that second spot was a big shock.

While Mallrat, G Flip, and Thelma Plum were expected to fill in the rest of the top 5. We saw Mallrat, Tones and I, and Denzel Curry actually fill out the top five. With the top ten rounding out with G Flip, Lime Cordiale, The Jungle Giants, Thelma Plum, and Hilltop Hoods.

G Flip tore up the countdown with four entries: ‘Drink Too Much’ at #6, ‘Lover’ at #58, ‘Stupid’ at #66 and ‘I Am Not Afraid’ at #77. Thelma Plum cleaned up as well with three tracks making it in: ‘Better In Blak’ at #9, ‘Homecoming Queen’ at #65 and ‘Not Angry Anymore’ at #78.

Tones and I, Halsey, BENEE, Ruel, and Ocean Alley were among some of the other artists charting multiple times.

Four Like a Versions made it in: Alex Lahey’s ‘Welcome to the Black Parade’, Skeggs’ ‘Here Comes Your Man’, Lime Cordiale’s ‘I Touch Myself, and, no surprises, Denzel Curry’s ‘Bulls on Parade’.

This year’s countdown filed 65 Aussie songs. Artists like Tones and I and Cosmo’s Midnight were among the 17 making their Hottest Hundy debut this year. And we broke records with a huge 3,211,596 votes.
