Beginning with this week’s albums chart, Leonard Cohen’s sorrowful passing has unsurprisingly resulted in a spike in sales of his music. His latest studio album You Want It Darker has returned to the #1 spot, while greatest hits compilation The Essential Leonard Cohen charts at #4. Bobby Bazini’s new album Summer Is Gone debuts at #2. Alex Nevsky’s Nos Eldorados squeaks into the Top 10 at #9.
Leonard Cohen’s classic “Hallelujah” from 1984 materializes onto the Hot 100 at #17, and the title track from his final studio album You Want It Darker enters at #73. Bobby Bazini’s “C’est La Vie” debuts on the Hot 100 at #72. It is the soul singer’s first song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Marianas Trench is back on the chart with its latest single “Who Do You Love”.

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.
