Voting for the WAEVZ Top 50 is OPEN!

2021 has without a doubt been a landmark year for the Australian Hip-Hop, R&B and New Wave music scene. Talents from across the country have released a whole range of incredible songs and the ‘WAEVZ Top 50’ is a celebration of exactly that.

2021 in particular has shown how groundbreaking the talent coming out of this country truly is. The momentum that has long been built within this country is well and truly at its peak, with even further strides to be taken from here. And all of this has been achieved in spite of persistent interruptions and lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On that note, this is your chance to vote for your top 50 favourite Australian Hip-Hop, R&B and New Wave songs of the year. Each submission form contains 5 entries for 5 different songs.

Within the entry form list, you will find a variety of acts from across the country. But for artists who are not on the list, please note that there is an ‘Other’ tab within each entry form where you can vote for them. The WAEVZ Top 50 is open to all artists within this country’s scene who have dropped in 2021.
