Canadian Hot 100, 31 August 2015

On the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, the lone entry from a home-grown artist is Emotion by Carly Rae Jepsen at #8. On the Hot 100, her “Run Away With Me” debuts at #83. Other new entries are Francesco Yates as a featured artist in Robin Schulz’s “Sugar” (#77) and Drake’s feature in Future’s “Where Ya At” (#92). The big news this week, however, is that we have our first #1 hit by a Canadian citizen since Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” in 2013. The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” has topped the chart.

On a side note, last week there were two versions of the Canadian Hot 100 due to discrepancies between the chart appearing in Nielsen’s newsletter and the online chart at Billboard. The chart in this week’s Nielsen newsletter, given the data in its “last week’s position” column, appears to go with the Billboard online version. We have reflected those numbers in the chart below (the peak position was also affected in some cases). We will leave last week’s chart in our archives as is for now which reflects the Nielsen newsletter version.
