According to data released today by the ABC’s Triple J network, some 3.34 million people – or 19 per cent of the population – listened to this year’s Hottest 100 broadcast on January the 27th.

This year’s poll was controversially moved from its typical home on Australia Day following a backlash that it was offensive to indigenous Australians.

US hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar topped the 2018 poll with his track Humble.

According to the broadcaster, this year the famous music poll received over 2.35 million votes and found that 30 per cent of the population aged 18-34 tuned into the live poll. While 71 per cent listened with others, tuning in on radio, online, streaming and more.

Additionally, there were a whopping 2.8 million streams across the day – that’s three times higher than last year’s countdown.

At its peak, there were 254,000 simultaneous streams of the Hottest 100 (just behind last year’s 258,000 peak), making it arguably the biggest streaming radio event worldwide.

Triple j listeners also helped raise a grand total of $250,000 for AIME during this year’s Hottest 100, equalling the amount raised the previous year. When combined with the $100,000 raised in the first year of our three-year partnership, over $600,000 will go towards helping Indigenous kids through high school and into university, training and employment.
