Scorching, surreal, and catchy as ever, Doja Cat’s single “Paint The Town Red” took the people’s vote in triple j’s music event of the year, coming up trumps with song #1.

The LA rapper battled it out with other Top 10 artists G Flip, Dom Dolla, Troye Sivan, and Billie Eilish as the countdown was on in the Hottest 100.

Her winning song “Paint The Town Red” was released last year on the album Scarlet.

This year’s triple j Hottest 100 has seen 35 artists make their first countdown debut, with a whopping 52 tunes made by Australian musicians.

Many artists saw multiple slots on the Hottest 100 this year, with Aussie G Flip scoring 7 mentions and pop superstar Troye Sivan almost back-to-back with #8, #31, and #33 for singles all off his latest album.

G Flip was awarded runner-up with “Worst Person Alive” at #2, winning the most mentions in a single Hottest 100 countdown by triple j minutes before the #1 vote was announced.

Doja Cat’s win broke new ground, with Triple j hosts announcing the “Say So” singer is the first solo female rapper and woman of colour to win #1 on triple j’s Hottest 100.

“With this win, Doja Cat created #hottest100 history,” they said to their followers on social media.

Congratulations Doja Cat!
