Amy Shark says hi to the US on live Today Show performance

“A big-time superstar in her native Australia,” Amy Shark took the US by storm this morning with a performance of I Said Hi on the in New York.

Fresh off the stage from Lollapalooza, Shark gave a relatively stripped-back performance of the pop hit, accompanied by a drummer and guitarist.

Shark and TODAY’s hosts joked about her biggest fan Russell Crowe – “He should manage [me] or he should come on board, I swear to God,” she joked.


Amping up for a headline North American tour, Shark’s recently-released debut album Love Monster has racked up critical acclaim here and abroad, debuting at #1 on the ARIA Charts in July and enjoying a run as triple j’s feature album.

I Said Hi – an ode aimed at the labels who turned the singer away – has clocked up almost 16 million streams globally, and peaked at #1 on the TMN Hot 100 airplay chart, spending 14 consecutive weeks in the Top 5 airplay.

Her newly serviced single All Loved Up is performing well, on track to become the #1 Most Added To Radio this week.

Fellow Aussies also jumping onto the TODAY stage recently were contemporary worship band Hillsong Young & Free, who performed their new single Let Go.

They have two Top 5 Album debuts with We Are Young & Free coming in at #6, and Youth Revival at #3. Collectively, Hillsong have four #1 albums in Australia.
