Billboard Hot 100 Airplay of 2015

radioBelow is a list of the Top 25 tunes that received the most radio airplay in Canada through the year 2015. The data was compiled from selected CHR, AC, hot AC, country, and rock radio stations, throughout the country which were electronically monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by Nielsen BDS. Note that the data was taken between the dates of December 6, 2014, to November 28, 2015. This chart, along with Billboard Hot Digital Songs is used to compile the Billboard Canadian Hot 100. The main difference between the Hot 100 Airplay and All-Format Airplay charts is that the former is weighted according to radio station listenership. If a station has more listeners, its spins of songs receive a higher weighting. Entries from Canadian artists below are bolded in red in the chart below.
