This is America conquers Australia as well
Childish Gambino is the name that American actor Donald Glover uses for his musical performances. Glover started his rap career 10 years ago, but we had to wait until 2018 for his biggest hit. The video for This is America has half a billion views on YouTube, the song itself is nominated for four Grammy Awards.
It could be so popular because it’s not only catchy, but it addresses the issue of racism and gun violence in the USA. The single has everything to become the Triple J Hottest Song in 2019, it’s odds are 3.40 at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Amy Shark’s back to get the first place once again
Amy Shark’s first album, Love Monster debuted at the first place of the ARIA chart two years ago. The Queensland singer is best known for her song “Adore” from 2016. That single took the second place on the Triple J Hottest 100 list that year.
Now, she’s back to get the first spot with her new indie pop hit “I Said Hi“. Amy Shark claims that this song is “an anthem for anyone who is waking up everyday fighting for what they believe in and challenging the universe!” So basically, anyone can relate to it, which is key. Her odds are currently 7.00 at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Ruby Fields and Fisher are also realistic candidates
“Losing It” by Fisher (6.00) is another strong candidate to become the song of the year in Australia. The tech house song has 8 million views on YouTube, and it’s getting real popular at the moment. However, it’s questionable whether a song without lyrics could reach the top of this list.
As we go through the 2019 Triple J Hottest Betting Odds it’s also important to mention “Dinosaurs” by Ruby Fields (10.00). Her page only has 12 000 likes on Facebook, but her beautiful indie anthem has won many hearts in Australia. Who knows, maybe this year she’ll manage to reach her biggest musical success so far.
Ocean Alley’s Confidence is the bookies’ favorite
Online gambling sites in Australia believe that Ocean Alley’s “Confidence” is the favorite to become the 2019 Triple J Hottest song. It’s odds are currently 1.61 on Bet365 Sportsbook, which is a bit of a surprise. The video has only 2 million views on YouTube and Ocean Alley’s not a band with many number one songs. So far, their best Triple J placement was 47th – in 2017 – with “The Comedown”. Still, the bookies have enough confidence to say that their new single is going to get them to the top.
