Billboard Canadian Hot 100 of 2012, Year-End Chart

Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me MaybeBillboard has a couple weeks early published its year-end charts.  Here we will take a look at the Top 100 singles of 2012 in Canada.  All in all, 25 or 1/4 of the chart are tunes by, involving, or featuring Canadian artists.  The biggest Canadian song of the year is no surprise, although some may be surprised it didn’t quite make #1.  Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” takes top honours, while Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” settles for #2.  (Remember that part of its chart success was at the end of last year.)  Carly’s “Curiosity” also made the chart as did her collarboartion with Owl City.

The second top Canadian song of the year was Hedley’s “Kiss You Inside Out”, the 19th biggest song of 2012.  Their “One Life” and “Invincible” also made the chart.  Simple Plan’s “Summer Paradise” was the 3rd biggest Canuck tune of 2012 landing at #22.  Justin Bieber had 2 contributions plus 1 as a featured artist.  Drake scored a pair as did Marianas Trench.  Other Canadian artists enjoying a tune that made the year-end Top 100 are Victoria Duffield, K’Naan, Nelly Furtado, Mia Martina, Danny Fernandes, Dragonette, deadmau5, Nickelback, Karl Wolf, Walk Off the Earth, and Kristina Maria.
