Sort of feels a bit early in the year but the markets are starting to appear and articles are starting to be posted.

Sportsbet just have the single market at the moment, for the winning artist, with Glass Animals the favourite at $6.50. The Weeknd is sitting second, but I’m assuming that SB have thought that Blinding Lights was released this year (released last year, already placed in last years countdown).

Feels pretty wide open in my opinion. Heat Waves by Glass Animals definitely has a big chance, and Flume (at $10 on SB) is always a contender, The Difference was definitely a hit early in the year but maybe released a little too early to have that summer festival wave that Rushing Back had last year. Billie Eilish ($12 SB)will be a chance again with My Future, I definitely see it going top 10, not sure if it has winning power though. Ruel ($12) has a monumental following now, will go very high with his new track and Juice WRLD ($12) has had big posthumous release after big posthumous release. Tame Impala are sitting at $12 as well but votes will be split across Lost In Yesterday, Breathe Deeper and Is It True. The Avalanches look decent at $18, Running Red Lights will be their main contender, although with the album still to come, and 6 tracks already released from it, they’ll have tracks taking votes from each other.

Cardi B is at $34 if you’re looking for a wildcard, hard to say whether or not WAP will still be as popular then as it is now.

Decent way to go, but think Heat Waves clearly at this stage. Wouldn't be surprised if Your Love got top 10 too, Glass Animals clearly the most popular band for this year. Flume and The Avalanches probably the only realistic challengers. Expect Hyperfine, Lost in Yesterday, Complicated, Cherub, Death Bed and On Our Own to be right up there as well. Keep an eye out for Spacey Jane too, reckon they'll be similar to Lime Cordiale and have multiple songs up there, they have gotten pretty big overnight. Hope there isn't much Ruel or Billie this year, but fanbases may carry them.

Been on glass animals from $51 outright.

Will get involved in this thread a bit later in the year but glass animals definitely in the box seat atm. Couple months to go yet though so keep an eye out for any big singles dropping before summer.

Most likely too late in the year for gangs to take the title imo be a good stab if it did though. Glass animals is lined up well to take the win while having 2 songs in top 10 and 3 songs inside the top 25 possibly. Only real question for me is who can push it out? Flume (not a big song but it's flume) or maybe a year for an underdog solo female like Eve's karydas? I could see the Scott's up there also, dunno about powfu.. can't figure out how that fits in haha

SB have actually taken Ruel back out to $21 from $12, which is surprising. Would’ve thought that $12 was reasonable considering the company that he had at the same price (Tame Impala, Juice Wrld and what not).

It’ll very interesting to see how the Tiktok tracks go, I think Powfu will go top 30 at least, personally. Cardi B is also into $21, it’ll also well I reckon.

Blinding Lights and Supalonely missed a trick coming out just before the cutoff last year, probably the only real crossover hits this year, other than the usual Hilltop Hoods song and Powfu. Suspect Blinding Lights may have cruised to a win.

Think Ball Park Music's Radiohead cover today will make it, only other LaV in contention would be the G Flip one. Don't think they'll do particularly well though. Cherub goes top 5 I think, gaining momentum at the perfect time.
