Rap collective Dead Obies scores a Top 10 album this week with the #10 Gesamtkunstwerk. On the Hot 100, Justin Bieber’s “Company” re-enters the chart as it has been released as a single and is getting added to radio. Alessia Cara’s “Wild Things” is up to #16. On the country charts, “Bow Chicka Wow Wow” from Bowmanville, Ontario newcomer Meghan Patrick debuts at #35. She was recently signed to Warner Music Canada and is being hailed as the next big thing. An impressive list of composers is associated with her upcoming album Grace and Grit out at the end of April, including Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, multiplatinum pop star Chantal Kreviazuk, and country’s leading man Gord Bamford. The new song is already being aired at two-thirds of the nation’s country stations, and Meghan is the featured artist in this week’s Nielsen Update newsletter.

Nielsen SoundScan compiles weekly data on sales of digital singles from a comprehensive pool of Canadian retailers. Nielsen BDS compiles weekly data on spins of singles from 137 radio stations nationwide electronically monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These two charts are combined in the Canadian Hot 100 which is published by Billboard. Beginning 17 September 2014, Nielsen included streaming data from online services in determining the Hot 100.
Here we list all entries from the chart that are in whole or in part by Canadian artists.
