Presented by music industry body APRA AMCOS, the trophy recognises Flume plus co-writer and vocalist Kai for their success across Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and everywhere else that isn’t the radio, a CD, or vinyl.

Speaking at the Manly Beach event, the artist born Harley Streten said “We’re lucky to have such a supportive local industry and it’s so great seeing Australian songs continue to do well overseas.”

The trophy represents an achievement only two other Aussies have accomplished: songwriter Nat Dunn’s work on Marshmello & Anne-Marie‘s Friends was recognised in June, and Dean Lewis copped the honour in July for Be Alright.

It’s hardly the first honour Never Be Like You has scored. In addition to being named #1 on the 2016 Triple J Hottest 100, Never Be Like You featured on Skin, the bloke’s Grammy Award-winning record.

It may have even been played during his infamous Burning Man set, but there’s no trophy for that kind of thing. Yet.
