Canadian Hot 100, 29 March 2016

la-voix-4The biggest news regarding this week’s Canadian charts is that La Voix IV is the first number one Canadian album of 2016! Music Canada has certified the disc at platinum. On the Hot 100, there are no new entries. “Work” slips from the top spot to #2 overall, as Denmark’s Lukas Graham claims the throne for “7 Years”. “Might Not” by Belly and “Spirits” by The Strumbellas inch up to #32 and #36 respectively. Sales have been on the downside as of late. Hopefully, the telecast of the JUNO Awards this weekend will result in some more $$$ for Canadian albums and singles.

NOTES:

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.

The date of the chart corresponds to the release of Nielsen Music’s Canadian Update newsletter which is normally 10 days earlier than the date on the online Billboard chart.

We have used the artwork for the singles where we can. In the case where one doesn’t exist or is unavailable, we have used artwork for the album on which the song appears.
