The track of the year according to The Guardian's music writers is Childish Gambino's 'This Is America'. The writers made a list of their top 100 tracks this year.

To be fair, it is a stellar track and one of 2018's best. Pair the song together with its over 400 million-viewed music video, and Childish Gambino had an idea that was destined for success.

The Guardian said on the chart, that it's "topped by a man who managed to unpick US racial politics, launch a thousand thinkpieces, and reach No 1 in the US charts, all with a single track." The voting by their music writers was conducted by a poll.

Childish Gambino was the only male artist to make the top 10. The other spots are given to Janelle Monae, Christine and the Queens, and Robyn and Ariana Grande both with two tracks each. The 1975 round out the top 10 with 'Love It If We Made It'.

Other appearances in the top 100 tracks list include Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's 'Shallow' from 'A Star Is Born,' while Róisín Murphy seems to be the only Irish artist to make the list with her track 'Plaything'.
