Robin Thicke - Blurred LinesBillboard has released its year-end charts. The top 100 singles of 2013 in Canada are listed below. In all, 23 of them were by or featuring a Canadian artist. The #1 song of the year in Canada was Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” which spent an amazing 13 weeks at #1. He has dual Canadian and American citizenship. This is the first time during the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 era that an artist with Canadian citizenship has scored the #1 song of the year. The top single by a foreign artist in 2013 was “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Two of Serena Ryder’s songs made the chart. Her “Stompa” was the second biggest hit by a Canaidan during 2013, 14th overall. Tegan and Sara, Drake, and Hedley contributed a pair each as well. Justin Bieber scored one as a lead artist and one as a featured artist.

Other Canadian acts with songs in the 2013 year-end top 100 are Classified (with David Myles), Trevor Guthrie, Walk Off the Earth, Majid Jordan (featured in Drake’s piece), Tyler Shaw, Artists Against Bullying, Daniel Powter, Metric, Avril Lavigne, Marianas Trench, Down With Webster, Michael Buble, and Carly Rae Jepsen. Note that some of these songs made the year-end chart of 2012 as well, so their chart performace was split between two years.
