“Despacito” featuring Justin Bieber spends its 10th week at the summit of the Billboard Hot 100. Reaching a new peak position on the chart is Shawn Mendes‘ “There’s Nothing Holding Me Back” at #6. It is Shawn Hook, however, who is king of the Emerging Artists chart for the second week in a row with “Reminding Me” which is up to #31 on the Hot 100. Only 13 Canadian artist tracks (whether as the main or lone featured artist) sit on the chart this week.
No new Canadian artist albums debut within the Top 10; Broken Social Scene settles for the respectable #14 for latest album Hug of Thunder.
Most chart activity is happening with country this week. New in the All-Format Airplay Top 50 is Gord Bamford‘s “Living on Summertime” at #42 (see brand new MV below). He is followed by Jojo Mason and “Something to Wrap My Heart Around”, #43. Tim Hicks is up to #2 on the Country Airplay chart for his “Slide Over”. He is bettered only by Thomas Rhett. Washboard Union‘s “Shine” debuts on the chart at #45.
