Canadian Hot 100, 27 October 2015

Beginning this week, the Canadian Albums chart, as published through Billboard, adds track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA) data to actual sales of albums to determine the ranking. Ten digital downloads of a track equals the purchase of 1 album and 1,500 streams of any album tracks equals 1 album purchase. Billboard will also be publishing a pure album sales chart, but it appears that this is only available with a subscription to the magazine. With the new methodology, Forever Gentlemen featuring various artists is at #2 this week, Les Soeurs Boulay’s 4488 de L’amour is at #6, and Bryan Adams’ Get Up at #10.

On the Hot 100, Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean” is back at #1 after falling to #2 by The Weeknd’s “The Hills” last week. It is Bieber’s 7th week at #1 with the song. His new single “Sorry” debuts on the chart at #65 and is the only new Canadian entry this week. Hedley’s “Hello” enters the Top 40, Coleman Hell’s “2 Heads” reaches a new peak at #21, and Drake’s “Hotline Bling” vaults from #10 to #5.
