Music: Ocean Alley Scores Top Spot On Triple J’s Hottest 100

If you paid any attention to Triple J’s Hottest 100 Countdown over the Australia Day weekend, you would know that Northern Beaches group, Ocean Alley was crowned number 1 on the charts with their most coveted song, Confidence.

Compared to last year’s 48th spot on the Hottest 100, the group ascended to the number 1 position with over 2.7 million votes under their belt and reportedly the largest count ever conducted by Triple J. Following their lead was Travis Scott’s SICKO MODE and Childish Gambino’s This Is America which unexpectedly slipped to number 4 on the charts.
