Most Playlisted: Tkay Maidza

Tkay Maidza pulled in the most spots across the best Australian new music playlists this week, with “Ring-A-Ling” nudging out ahead of some really strong tracks.

Most Playlisted This Week

🥇Tkay Maidza

🥈Middle Kids, Teen Jesus & The Jean Teasers

🥉Beddy Rays, Skeleten

Middle Kids and Teen Jesus & The Jean Teasers were only a shade behind with their latest tracks, with both artists gaining spots on a third of the playlists I track. That’s a really consistent amount of critic support and, in any other week, would be likely to have topped the list.

Beddy Rays’ new one also gained some strong backing across the board, while Skeleten (again!) gets the Story Of The Week nod. This artist has been regularly featured on my tracked playlists, and with the release of their debut Under Utopia album has proved that there’s a significant amount of playlister backing for this project.

The image above is a screenshot of the top end of the full lists. You can see this week’s lists here – those are updated on Mondays and allow you to scroll down the whole list. That page also details a bit more about how the whole thing works and what the charts mean.

You can also listen to the most playlisted tracks on, er, a playlist that I keep updated here. This has got the latest 50-ish most playlisted tracks from the last month or so on it, and it’s a decent spin through recent tracks that Australian new music playlisters are adding. The playlists that I track are the same as the ones listed in the Playlist Guide.
