Hottest 100 countdown results

Yesterday’s triple j Hottest 100 countdown was reportedly the biggest yet, with 187,975 voters casting 1,516,765 votes. The winner, as expected, was Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with ‘Thrift Shop’, the first hip-hop song to top the poll.

What everyone was talking about, however, was the Warmest 100 and how close its predictions would turn out to be. In the end, 92 of the 100 songs in the Hottest were also in the Warmest 100, their order growing more accurate as the numbers counted down. There were still surprises – Knife Party made it to 55 with ‘Internet Friends’ after being predicted to barely sneak in at 94, for instance – but by the top 10 it was just a matter of seeing which order the songs would be in, with the top three all accurately predicted. It’ll be interesting to see whether next year’s voting comes without the option to share your choices on social media in response to this.

Here’s the full list of the Hottest 100, with their Warmest 100 positions indicated in brackets. The mean difference was just over 10 positions (actually 10.7934782608696, stats fans). If you missed it, triple j will be replaying all of the songs on Sunday, February 3 from 10am.

The Real Story Of How Macklemore Got 'Thrift Shop' To No. 1

ROYALwithCHEESE

To sum up the article..

Macklemore calls himself indie. A record company has setup and 'indapendant arm' and this is assocaited with the duo's success.
Have seen this happen before with other groups..

Not sure wether the claim of being indie can continue or if the success of 'thrift shop' occured before or after the help they got help.
Also not sure if the whole things is someone questioning the industry or tall poppy syndrome?

I don't think hiring a promotions company that is associated with a major label makes them any less independent.

If the article is correct in saying that Macklemore and Lewis were the ones that hired the company then that very much keeps them within the realms of independent.

To be an independent artist doesn't mean they need to be selling all their CDs themselves out of the boot of their car.
