Canadian Hot 100, 28 December 2015

Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” spends its second week at #1. The only entry to improve its peak position is “I Know What You Did Last Summer” by Shawn Mendes which is now a Top 40 hit (#37). The lone new entry is “Let It Go” by Dutch DJ Laidback Luke featuring North Vancouver’s Trevor Guthrie (#92).

Calendar Year-End Statistics

This being the final chart of the year, we can quote some statistics. During the 2015 calendar year, 109 songs involving Canadian artists debuted on the Hot 100. Of these, 31 reached the Top 40, and nine the Top 10. There were four #1s: “What Do You Mean” and “Sorry” by Justin Bieber and “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills” by The Weeknd. Four of the 109 spent more than 30 weeks on the chart: “Where Are U Now” featuring Justin Bieber (41 weeks to date), Shawn Hook’s “Sound of Your Heart” (34 weeks), Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” (33 weeks to date), and The Weeknd’s “The Hills” (31 weeks to date). Note that a bunch of songs debuted in 2014 and continued a chart run in 2015 and also that a number of the songs that debuted in 2015 will continue their chart run into 2016. Regarding songs involving Canadians that debuted during 2014 (as a comparison), there were 95, 22 making the Top 40, five the Top 10, and no #1s. A conclusion would be then that Canadian songs did better within Canada in 2015 than in 2014.
