Kendrick Lamar has won triple j’s Hottest 100 countdown with his song HUMBLE., becoming the first person of colour to take out the top spot.
Lamar is also just the second hip hop artist to top the annual music poll after Macklemore claimed the honour in 2012.
Triple j’s music director Nick Findlay said the station was overwhelmed with requests for HUMBLE. when the track was released last year.
“When I look back on 2017, it’s hard to deny that when it came to music, Kendrick Lamar dominated on all fronts,” he said.
“Back in March, HUMBLE. burst its way onto our speakers with such force that it immediately became an instant classic for the triple j audience, who overwhelmed us with requests.
