2011’s Biggest Canadian Hits, Both English and French

CMB medThe number one song of 2011 in Canada was Adele’s ”Rolling in the Deep”. The most successful Anglo song from a Canadian artist was ”Hello”, a collaboration between Dragonette and France’s Martin Solveig (11th of the year, Canadian Hot 100). The year’s biggest Franco hit was Vincent Vallières’ “On va s’aimer encore” (4th of the year, CKOI). It reached #56 on the weekly Canadian Hot 100, an impressive feat for a Francophone song, and won the Felix award for Single of the Year. 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.
