Canadian Hot 100, 25 October 2016

Colin James scores his first Top 10 album in the SoundScan era, as Blue Highways debuts at #10 on the Billboard albums chart. It is the first Top 10 album by a Saskatchewan artist in 2016. On the Hot 100, we may be saying goodbye to “Sorry” by Justin Bieber this week, which spent a full year on the chart, but Music Canada has certified it as a 7x platinum single! “Love Yourself” has received the same certification, while “What Do You Mean?” settles for 6x platinum. New on the Hot 100 is Karl Wolf’s “Amateur at Love” #100. New peaks are achieved by Virginia to Vegas (“Lights Out”) at #76, The Weeknd (“False Alarm”) #34, and Alessia Cara (“Scars to Your Beautiful”) #19.

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.
