BMTH and YUNGBLUD’s Obey crowned as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record of the Year 2020
The two artists joined forces for the absolutely colossal Obey back in September, with Annie calling the song “a really exciting record from the outset”.
“Two artists at totally different stages in their careers collaborating for the first time, huge mutual respect between them, and both of them pushing the boundaries of what they already do,” she continues. “The combination of YUNGBLUD’s enthusiasm and energy, and Oli’s experience and vision makes this track a perfect collaboration. It’s also a really big moment for rock music and I’m really happy that a track like this could win Hottest Record of the Year.”

“We’re so grateful,” says Horizon frontman Oli Sykes. “It’s incredible, absolutely incredible. I think it’s a big moment for us and I think it feels like an exciting moment for rock. It’s probably been a really long time since a rock song made it to a position like this so it’s super cool. Amazing way to end the year so thank you for all the support.”
YUNGBLUD adds: “What the hell, that’s so crazy! Rock’n’roll is having a good year this year… Oli literally text me like, ‘We got it, we got it!’ We were like 15-year-olds!”
Now, step forward BMTH and YUNGBLUD…
