This week Billie Eilish’s former #1 single scored huge accolades on opposite sides of the globe; first coming in at #1 in the Triple J Hottest 100 and then winning Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year at the Grammy Awards. Eilish’s latest single ‘everything i wanted’ has moved back up to #11.
 
On the back of placing #2 in the Hottest 100, Flume’s ‘Rushing Back’ cracks the Top Ten for the first time. The Vera Blue collaboration previously hit #15 last November.
