2016’s Biggest Canadian Hits, Both English and French

CMB medThe most successful Anglo Canadian song of 2015 was “Sorry” by Justin Bieber which peaked at #1 on the weekly Billboard Canadian Hot 100 and was the biggest song of the year overall. This is the second time since the debut of the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 that a Canadian citizen has topped the year-end chart. Dual citizen Robin Thicke accomplished this in 2013 with “Blurred Lines”. Nine of the 2016 year-end Hot 100 songs that involved Canadian artists peaked at #1 on the weekly charts either in 2016 or 2015. Thirty-two songs involving Canadians made the year-end Top 100 songs which is a record, surpassing 31 in 1996. A number of the 32, however, had Canadians as featured artists. In addition, 24 songs involving Canadians made the weekly Top 40 through the year making for a total of 56 Canadian artist hit singles of 2016.

No Franco song appeared on the Hot 100 through the year. Ten Canadian artist Franco songs made the CKOI year-end Top 50 which we list below. Tops was Les Cowboys Fringants’ “Marine marchande”.

14 Canadians Who Debuted on the Hot 100 in 2016

The Billboard Canadian Hot 100, the definitive chart for measuring the relative success of songs from week to week, welcomed 14 Canadian artists for the first time in 2016. The chart, which combines measurements of digital purchases of tracks, radio airplay, and streaming data (the latter a recent addition), launched in June 2007 replacing the old, highly problematic Nielsen SoundScan charts which measured the sale of CD singles only. For one of the thousands upon thousands of Canadian artists to make an appearance on the chart, it is a very difficult task. Nevertheless, while the chart was dominated by all kinds of foreign artists and Canadian A-listers like Drake, Justin Bieber, and The Weeknd, 14 managed to climb in. Some may have lasted for only a week and some may have gotten in via a credited feature in a track, buy hey they did it, and it’s a huge accomplishment! Who are these 14 artists? Where are they from? What kind of music do they make? We intend in this post to put faces to the names. Here they are in alphabetical order. Watch for some of these slayers in 2017.

Bit Funk

bit-funk

Now based in New York, this Halifax lad is a producer, remixer and DJ. He is making his mark on the contemporary club scene with his EDM wizardry. In late 2015, Bit Funk released his pop crossover single “Off the Ground”. It gained traction on streaming services, gaining 4 million on Spotify, and the MV did well on YouTube. Some mainstream radio stations picked it up, and it managed to squeak itself into the Hot 100.

Bobby Bazini

bobby-bazini

This hot soul singer is known throughout the land. While scoring a pair of platinum albums and four JUNO nominations, a hit single was sure to come at some point. Voila! In 2016, “C’est La Vie” off his third album was picked up by radio, especially AC and Hot AC stations, and rocketed up to the top 20 at iTunes. It is Bazini’s first Hot 100 charting single. There will be many more to come.

Delaney Jane

delaney-jane

Delaney is from Toronto and began making music with Shaun Frank. They teamed up with international chart topping Canadian duo DVBBS in track “La La Land” which made the Hot 100. Delaney is working on her debut EP, and collaborations with other DJs are in store.

Jonathan Roy

jonathan-roy

The star hockey player now has a star singer son. The Roys are awesome. Jonathan’s launch was helped by mentor Corey Hart, and his delicious single “Daniella Denmark” popped into the charts in February. He’s from the suburbs of Quebec City.

Kai

kai

One of the biggest songs of the year, “Never Be Like You” peaked at #21 and stayed on the chart for 28 weeks. The EDM track is from Australia’s Flume and features Toronto singer Kai. She had previously collaborated with Adventure Club, Diplo, Skrillex, and Childish Gambino. She also wrote the song “Sweet Talker” for Jessie J. But, of course, Kai’s big breakthrough came with the Flume track. It is now up for a Grammy Award.

Leonard Cohen

leonard-cohen-gi

Leonard Cohen? Yes. Remember that the Canadian Hot 100 has been around only since mid-2007. Following his heartbreaking death, Leonard’s song “Hallelujah” became a hit at iTunes and undoubtedly received some radio spins. It debuted on the chart at #17 remaining for just the one week. The same week, “You Want It Darker” from his last studio album charted at #73. It is a nice way to cap off the Montrealer’s legacy.

Lucky Rose

lucky-rose

Vincent Carrier, a.k.a. Lucky Rose, is a DJ/producer from Quebec City who specializes in tropical pop. Lucky released his first official single “The Way You Want Me” featuring Yan Etchevary, and it was picked up by the Virgin radio group across Canada. It made the Hot 100 in February.

Michelle Treacy

michelle-treacy1

This youthful star from Ottawa is red hot. She was selected to perform with Lady Gaga and was quickly signed by Sony. Michelle released her debut single “Armageddon” which remained on the Hot 100 for several weeks. Its music video racked up 300,000 views by the end of the year. Keep your eyes on this singer!

PartyNextDoor

partynextdoor

Being the first one signed to Drake’s OVO Record Label doesn’t hurt when it comes to breaking out in the urban music market. This Mississaugan’s real name is Jahron Anthony Brathwaite. He made the chart a few times through the year including as a collaborator. His first charting single (which incidentally featured Drake) was “Come and See Me” which peaked at #73.

Ruth B

ruth-b

The most successful newcomer in 2016 was Edmonton’s Ruth B who scored a triple platinum single for her delicate piano ballad “Lost Boy”. It was on the Hot 100 for 28 weeks peaking at #14. She may just be western Canada’s answer to Alessia Cara.

Shaun Frank

shaun-frank

Shaun is the Toronto based DJ/producer involved in the aforementioned Delaney Jane and DVBBS track “La La Land”. He has done work with the likes of Borgeous, Kiesza, Down with Webster, and The Chainsmokers.

Sleepy Tom

sleepy-tom

Speaking of EDM crafters, Vancouver’s Sleepy Tom (Cam Tatham, born in Squamish, BC) teamed up with Diplo to score the charting single “Be Right There”. It garnered 160 million streams worldwide and went gold in Britain peaking at #8 on the official British charts! Sleepy has worked with Zeds Dead and Martin Solveig.

The Strumbellas

the-strumbellas

Another of the bigger successes of 2016 was Toronto roots leaning, JUNO award winning group The Strumbellas. “Spirits” peaked at #23 and went platinum. It also saw big success internationally. The photo above is the band being presented with a gold award by Germany.

Yan Etchevary

yan-etchevary

Yan, from The Magdalen Islands, was featured in the aforementioned single “The Way You Want Me” by Lucky Rose. The song was included in Sony compilation album Just the Hits 2016.

All Canadian Artist Songs that Charted on the Hot 100 in 2016

canadian-hot-100

We are pleased to provide a detailed list of all Canadian artist songs that debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2016. There are 106 of them from 43 unique Canadian artists. We included tracks by international artists that feature a Canadian in a major way. International artists appear in a grey box. Canadian artists who made the Hot 100 for the very first time have their names bolded in green; there are 14 of them. The Billboard Canadian Hot 100 charts debuted in June 2007. We have included the peak position achieved on the chart, the date of that chart peak (“PDATE”), the number of weeks spent on the chart, the start date (“SDATE”) when the song debuted and the end date (“EDATE”) when the song last appeared on the chart. The dates are from Nielsen which are normally 10 days behind the Billboard charts published online. Note too that many of these with the end date of December 27 will continue on the charts into 2017. Songs that debuted on the chart in 2015 and carried over into 2016 are not included here. Some of the 2016 songs may have dropped off and re-entered the chart, so the total weeks are not necessarily continuous weeks. We have screen-captured the data from Excel in five batches; click to enlarge the images so that the text is clearer.

The Billboard Hot 100 combines digital sales of tracks, radio airplay, and streaming data to give a comprehensive picture of how relatively popular the songs are for the week in which the chart was published. These Canadian artists and their songs were successful in large part because of your support. Let’s celebrate the songs and the artists that made the chart through the year! We hope you will all find the information below useful and encouraging.

Canadian Hot 100, 22 November 2016

Alex Nevsky’s Nos Eldorados squeaks into the Top 10 at #9.

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.

Canadian Hot 100, 8 November 2016

Before we get to the Hot 100, there are some exciting things happening on the albums chart this week. Michael Buble’s Nobody but Me has risen from last week’s #3 position up to #2 this week, a rare event in the digital era. Two Canadian albums debut in the Top 10: Blue Rodeo’s 1000 Arms at #6 and Sam Roberts Band’s TerraForm at #8.  

Four tracks involving Canadian artists debut in the Hot 100: Dallas Smith’s “Autograph” #97, Belly’s “Ballerina” #66, Drake’s “Two Birds, One Stone” #64, and Meek Mill’s “Litty” which features Canadian artist Tory Lanez #54. Drake’s “Sneakin'” and “Fake Love” both make significant gains over last week.

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.

Canadian Hot 100, 11 October 2016

Lisa LeBlanc’s Why You Wanna Leave, Runaway Queen? debuts on the Albums chart at #8 this week. On the Hot 100, we say goodbye to Justin Bieber’s smash “Love Yourself” which spent 47 weeks on the chart. “Sorry” still hangs on, and if it makes it to next week’s chart will have spent a full year on the Hot 100. The Weeknd’s “False Alarm” debuts on the chart at #44, this week’s only new entry from a Canadian. Michelle Treacy’s “Armageddon” continues to climb, now at #81. Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy” enters the Top 40 reaching #38, while Alessia Cara’s “Scars to Your Beautiful” achieves a new peak position at #25.

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.
