Ocean Alley Nab #1 Spot As Aussie Artists Dominate Hottest 100

It's that time of year again!

Now, full disclosure, dear reader: as a fully committed pop princess who mostly listens to Britney Spears and is currently finalising her outfit choices for the So Pop tour that will bring Aqua, The Vengaboys, B*Witched and more together for one glorious night, please know that I am wading out of my depth to bring you this news. Be kind, friend, I am Doing My Best!!!

Okay, now that's out of the way, let's talk about the Hottest 100, a day that lots of Aussies love and are very excited about, which is fabulous!

Also fabulous is this fact that Josh, our Senior News Reporter told me earlier: More than 50 of the 85 songs in the countdown so far have been from Aussie artists. Love that for us, we stan homegrown talent!

He also said that local artists DMA's, Vance Joy, Peking Duk, Rufus Du Sol, G Flip and Hockey Dad have all had multiple entries so far, as well as Drake and Post Malone, so that's cool!

Ocean Alley took out the top spot this year for this song "Confidence", which I just listened to for the first time! It's cool, I get it. The video's nice also!

Their Twitter bio describes them as "a 6 piece rock band from the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia". Love that for them, I wonder if they know Cass from The Bachelor and the Honey Badger!
