2010’s Biggest Canadian Hits, Both English and French

CMB medThe number one song of 2010 in Canada was Katy Perry’s ”California Gurls” [sic]. The most successful Anglo song from a Canadian artist was ”Perfect” by Hedley (18th of the year, Canadian Hot 100). Two songs by Canadian artists topped the charts in 2010: “I Believe” by Nikki Yanofsky and charity single “Wavin’ Flag” by Young Artists For Haiti. The original “Wavin’ Flag” by K’Naan made it to #2. The year’s biggest Franco hit was “Dans mon corps” by Les Trois Accords (17th of the year, CKOI). Annie Villeneuve’s “J’imagine”, the Franco version of “I Believe”, made the weekly Top 40 of the Billboard Canadian Hot 100. These songs were used to promote the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. Below is a list of all singles by Canadian artists that made the year-end Top 100 or that peaked within the Top 40 of the weekly Canadian Hot 100.
