Marching Forward with Chart and JUNO News

Not much activity on the Canadian charts this week. “I Feel It Coming” by The Weeknd is now the top Canadian artist entry on the Hot 100 and a new Top 10 hit (#10). The Beauty and the Beast soundtrack which includes song “How Does a Moment Last Forever” from Céline Dion debuts on the albums chart at #7. The Road Hammers’ “Crazy About You” debuts at #49 on Country Airplay and Walk Off the Earth floats onto AC with “Fire in My Soul” (#34).

For those who remember the hit (I’ve got) “The Power” from German group Snap Circa 1990, the JUNO dinner and awards preceding the big televised gala the following night, can claim some power. During this SOCAN-sponsored off-camera affair, 34 of the trophies will be given out, interspersed with performances by Daniel Caesar, Jess Moskaluke, Koriass, William Prince, and Neon Dreams. Funny lady Jessie Crookshank is taking a break from emcee duties this year to celebrate April Fools Day; the event will be hosted by CBC Q man Tom Power. It will be live-streamed online April 1.
