Top 100 Singles of 2008 in Canada

timbaland ft One Republic ApologizeAccording to the Billboard Canadian Hot 100, the biggest song of 2008 in Canada was “Apologize” by Timbaland featuring One Republic. The original song appeared on One Republic’s debut album. Timbaland remixed it with an urban lean. Twenty-one songs from the year-end top 100 chart below involve Canadian artists which have been bolded in red. The top song by a Canadian, at #11, was “Dangerous” by Kardinal Offishall. The Canadian charts are an accurate reflection of Canadian tastes in music, and the Top 100 songs were determined both from radio airplay and nationwide sales data. The drawback with year-end charts is that songs charting from the end of one year through beginning of the next will have their chart performance split between the two years.
