It’s Hottest 100 season once again and this year we want to know your opinions on some of the year’s top tracks: E^ST’s ‘I Wanna Be Here’, Hooligan Hef’s ‘SEND IT’ and Jaguar Jonze’s ‘Rabbit Hole’. We’re also giving away a $100 voucher for each!

Back in July – while most of us were experiencing a mental lockdown – South African-born Australian singer-songwriter E^ST released her stunning single ‘I WANNA BE HERE’ as the final reveal prior to her debut album I’M DOING IT.

Produced by Jim Eliot, the same mastermind behind the likes of Halsey, Ellie Goulding, and Kylie Minogue, ‘I WANNA BE HERE’ highlights itself as a pop anthem, infused with a deeper message that sparked from a troubling point in E^ST’s life.

As one of the biggest pop anthems of 2020, this song showcases E^ST’s pioneering ways of combining the classic, sensational pop sounds with cutting-edge lyrics, that draw the listener in, and make you want to play her songs on repeat.

We want to hear your opinion on ‘I WANNA BE HERE’. Let us know below or as part of the Tone Deaf Tastemakers program and you’ll go in the running to win a $100 voucher to the Aussie retailer of your choice (within reason and Australian laws, of course).

Whether your rating is positive or negative it won’t effect your chances at winning, we value honest opinions above all else (though if you are going to give negative rating try to keep it constructive – we want to critique music here, not make people cry).
