Billboard Canadian Hot 100 of 2012, Year-End Chart

Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me MaybeBillboard has a couple weeks early published its year-end charts.  Here we will take a look at the Top 100 singles of 2012 in Canada.  All in all, 25 or 1/4 of the chart are tunes by, involving, or featuring Canadian artists.  The biggest Canadian song of the year is no surprise, although some may be surprised it didn’t quite make #1.  Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” takes top honours, while Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” settles for #2.  (Remember that part of its chart success was at the end of last year.)  Carly’s “Curiosity” also made the chart as did her collarboartion with Owl City.

The second top Canadian song of the year was Hedley’s “Kiss You Inside Out”, the 19th biggest song of 2012.  Their “One Life” and “Invincible” also made the chart.  Simple Plan’s “Summer Paradise” was the 3rd biggest Canuck tune of 2012 landing at #22.  Justin Bieber had 2 contributions plus 1 as a featured artist.  Drake scored a pair as did Marianas Trench.  Other Canadian artists enjoying a tune that made the year-end Top 100 are Victoria Duffield, K’Naan, Nelly Furtado, Mia Martina, Danny Fernandes, Dragonette, deadmau5, Nickelback, Karl Wolf, Walk Off the Earth, and Kristina Maria.

Below is the year-end Billboard Canadian Hot 100 of 2012.  Canadian artists are in red. More year-end and other Canadian charts can be found here.

Canadian Hot 100, 12 December 2012

City and ColourWith the release of his new single, a traditional single in the sense that it contains two songs (“A-side” and “B-side” or perhaps a “double A-side”), City and Colour has contributed two of the four new entries on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.  “How Come Your Arms Are Not Around Me” has landed at #66, the strongest of the four newbies, and “Soon Enough” at #90.  The other two new entries are Marianas Trench’s “Stutter” (#82) and Metric’s “Breathing Under Water” (#95).  With the four new entries, more than 100 tunes by or featuring Canadian artists have debuted on the Hot 100 through the year 2012.  Rapper Classified’s piece “Inner Ninja” which features David Myles was the week’s greatest gainer, scaling 22 positions up the chart from #98 to #76.  Gains were made at the top of the chart as Tegan and Sara’s “Closer” and Serena Ryder’s “Stompa” have both moved into the Top 30 (#28 and #26 respectively).  Anjulie’s “You and I” has surpassed its previous best position to #25 as has Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and a Beat” to #6.

Canadian Hot 100, 28 November 2012

December is the home stretch. What’s going to be the biggest Canadian song of the year? The biggest album?  Thus far, 98 tunes from Canadian artists have debuted in the Hot 100 this year.  An additional 7 released at the end of 2011, peaked on the charts in 2012.  This week’s chart has no new entries by Canadian artists but some highlights, the first of which is that the biggest song in the country by a Canadian artist is “Beauty and a Beat” by Justin Bieber (which features American rap queen Nicki Minaj).  The funky bass song climbed 6 positions from last week and is now the 8th biggest hit in the Great White North.  It is also the 4th single released from his double-platinum album Believe to make the Top 10.

The biggest Canadian gainer was The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games”.  It leapt 24 positions up from last week surpassing its previous peak by 3 positions.  The tune is now at #60.  Having released her new album Harmony, Peterborough’s Serena Ryder has enjoyed a 20-position jump of her latest single “Stompa” (#63).  There are no new Canadian albums in Top 10 of the albums chart this week, but we expect Serena to make an appearance on next week’s chart.

Canadian Hot 100, 21 November 2012

Debuting on the Canadian Hot 100 this week at #10 is a cover song performed by a multitude of Canadian artists.  “True Colors [sic]” was composed by U.S. songwriters Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly for New Yorker Cyndi Lauper in 1986.  It was about Steinberg’s mother. The song has been covered some 70 times, the most famous perhaps being from the U.K.’s Phil Collins.  While Elise Estrada composed an original song about bullying (more specifically the suicide of Amanda Todd), several Canadians, as Artists Against Bullying, have recorded a cover of “True Colours”, namely LIGHTS, Alyssa Reid, Hedley, Simple Plan, Fefe Dobson, Walk off the Earth, and Kardinal Offishall.  The song differs from the Cyndi Lauper version in that it includes a segment of rapping.

The only other new entry by a Canadian artist is “Karma” (#88) by Ottawa’s Kristina Maria.  This is the 3rd single off her debut album Tell That World that has made the chart in 2012.  Award-winning “Let’s Play” (Top 20) and “Co-Pilot” were gold singles in 2011.  The biggest jump on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 was Tegan and Sara’s “Closer”; up 12 positions from last week, it has entered the Top 40.

Making it to the Top 10 of the Albums chart is Star Academie’s Christmas album Noel (#3).  The Weeknd’s Trilogy is at #5.  This is actually a re-release of his previous 3 albums from last year. 

Star Academie contestants gather for the launching of Noel with Gregory Charles and Santa.

Canadian Hot 100, 14 November 2012

Celine Dion has the best-selling album in the country.  Sans Attendre has not only topped the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, it sold 92,000 copies during its first week of release which is the second highest number through the year (after Taylor Swift’s Red at 92,450).  Victoria Duffield, on top of the Emerging Artists chart for 6 straight weeks, has relinquished the position to Tegan and Sara for their latest hit “Closer”.  On the Hot 100, Anjulie has broken into the Top 30 with “You and I” now at #27.  Two new entries on the chart this week are Celine Dion’s “Les Petits Pieds de Lea” (#80) and “Inner Ninja” by Nova Scotian rapper Classified featuring New Brunswick’s reggae singer David Myles (#97).  Carly Rae Jepsen has the greatest Canadian gainer.  “This Kiss” climbed 17 positions up from last week.

Canadian Hot 100, 7 November 2012

Three new entries have appeared on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 this week that involve a Canadian artist.  Drake is featured in a new tune by American rapper A$AP Rocky.  Faber Drive’s “Candy Store” has debuted on the chart.  The song has been out since June.  Faber Drive is from Carly Rae Jepsen’s hometown of Mission, BC.  The third tune, just squeaking in on the skates of Wayne Gretzky, is Johnny Reid’s “Dedicated to You” (#99).  As far as the gainers go, Anjulie’s new single “You and I” has broken into the Top 40!  Massari is just outside; “Brand New Day” is at #43.  The greatest gainer, though, was Shawn Desman; “Dum Da Dum” is now at #80, climbing 15 positions.  He is currently working on a music video.

On the albums chart, there are 2 new entries in the Top 10.  The Tenors’ new album, Lead with Your Heart is #3 and Neil Young (with Crazy Horse) is at #7 with Psychedelic Pill.

Canadian Billboard Hot 100, 31 October 2012

Despite their not being released as singles nor gaining radio airplay, nearly all tracks from a new album by American country artist Taylor Swift appear on the Canadian Hot 100 this week.  This can only be explained by high digital sales.  Although this has knocked some Canadian tunes off the chart and prevented a number from debuting, 4 new tunes were able to make it.  The strongest of these is from Nova Scotia rapper Classified featuring Toronto’s Saukrates, the tune being “Anything Goes” (#71).  Immediately behind it is a new rap piece from K-OS that will have his former English teachers cringing; “Nyce 2 Know Ya” is #72.  Speaking of spelling missteps, Abel Tesfaye, who, whether intentionally or not, has dropped an ‘e’ from his stage name to be known as The Weeknd, is on the Hot 100 for the very first time with “Wicked Games”.  (You know we’re just teasin’, eh.)  Both K-OS and The Weeknd will be releasing albums in November.  Finally, Shawn Desman has a new Dragnetish addition to the Hot 100 club, “Dum Da Dum”.

Speaking of Shawns, Mr. Hook’s new single “So Close” is up to #71, Dean Brody to #61 (“It’s Friday”), Massari to #52 (“Brand New Day”), and Anjulie is now just outside the Top 40, as “You and I” is at #42.  Les Trois Accords’ new album J’aime ta grand-mere has debuted on the albums chart at #5.  Before getting to the Canuck entries on the Canadian Hot 100, below is a summary of the charts.

Canadian Billboard Hot 100, 24 October 2012

Although there are no new entries on the Canadian Hot 100 this week, a few songs skated up the chart like Christine Nesbitt being chased by a polar bear.  Justin Bieber’s collaboration with U.S. rapper Nicki Minaj went from #55 last week to #17 this week, a gain of 38 positions.  The single is “Beauty and a Beat”.  I wonder which of the two is the beauty and which is the beat.  Moving forward 26 positions are twin sisters Tegan and Sara with “Closer”, though the song has yet to match its debut position of #48.  The ever handsome Shawn Hook enjoyed a 15-point gain with his “So Close”.

On the Albums Chart, Paul Daraiche has surpassed his previous #6 position, now at #3 with country album Mes Amours Mes Amis.  A new album on the chart is from Canadian-American singer Martha Wainwright.  Her Come Home to Mama, dedicated to her mother, Canadian folk singer Kate McGarrigle, who passed away from cancer, is at #6.

Canadian Billboard Hot 100, 17 October 2012

Three new entries, three re-entries, six songs have reached their highest position ever, and some chalk has enjoyed a 21-position jump.  The three new entries are Shawn Hook’s “So Close”, Serena Ryder’s “Stompa”, and “Don’t Turn on the Lights” by Vancouver’s Felix Cartal (featuring Polina).  The first and third songs have been out for quite a while now but have finally decided to join the party, eh.  This is Felix Cartal’s first time ever on the Hot 100.  Carly Rae Jepsen’s “This Kiss” has re-entered the chart (with an upcoming MV release), as has Tegan & Sara’s “Closer”.  Oddly, “Beauty and a Beat” by Justin Bieber (featuring U.S. rapper Nicki Minaj) has re-entered the chart as well.  This is odd because the song has been absent from the chart since June.  Three Days Grace’s “Chalk Outline” had the biggest gain, paying homage to Johnny Depp, given that it was a 21 jump.  Victoria Duffield’s “Break My Heart” has reached its highest position yet–#36.  Although Marie-Mai’s “C.O.B.R.A.” was off the chart this week, her album Miroir has just been certified GOLD only one month after release!  Diana Krall’s Glad Rag Doll, which debuted on the Albums Chart at #5, has gained ground and this week is at #2.

One-Year Anniversary on the Charts of a Canadian Classic

Here’s a question: What happened on October 14 last year? It was quite an uneventful day in the news—both nationally and globally. CNN may as well have gone on holiday or … changed its name to CMM, for a planted seed bearing such initials began to sprout, eventually growing into a tree that spread its branches around the world and brought joy to millions of people.

Mission, BC’s Carly Rae Jepsen who had enjoyed two GOLD singles, two JUNO nominations, and two Top 40 hits had recorded a new song she had written. This new single was released on September 20, 2011. Jepsen was excited, as what started out as a folk-pop piece was tweaked in the recording studio. The result was a fresh, new sound. It bore no resemblance to the twangy, squeaky acoustics of rural music. It refused to embrace the rapping and warbling of so-called urban music. And it shut its doors to the over-simplified formulaic pop ditties made south of the border. It was a sophisticated, exciting pure pop sound that was very Canadian.

On October 14, 2011, one year ago today, “Call Me Maybe” entered the Billboard Canadian Hot 100.

It was a very humble beginning. While new songs by Daughtry and Taio Cruz debuted on the same chart inside the Top 40, and Maroon 5’s unbeatable “Moves like Jagger” was on top, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” stumbled in at #97 perhaps wondering if it was welcome. The following week, things were looking promising as the song climbed up to #81. The third week was the most exciting as the song enjoyed its biggest climb, lunging ahead 24 places to #57. The song was no doubt being added to radio station playlists, especially in western Canada.

From October 28, “Call Me Maybe” began a slow and steady climb. When it was #43 on the Billboard chart in November, Jepsen launched a mini-tour of western Canada to promote the song. After the shows, on November 25, “Call Me Maybe” hit #35 and the following week slipped down to #37. It looked like it was all over. But Carly and her team were not willing to be satisfied with another song that just made it into the Top 40. They set their sights higher and worked on creating a catchy music video.

The music video for “Call Me Maybe” was released on December 9, and the song turned around and began to climb again, albeit slowly: #32, #28, #24, and #22 on December 30. And on this very day something very unexpected happened.

Carly’s sister very excitedly told her that, on Twitter, Justin Bieber had mentioned the song. Carly’s first response was that, as many of Bieber’s fans name their Twitter account “Justin Bieber”, the tweet was probably from one of them or one of his fan sites. Her sister insisted that it was from the Biebs’ himself, so Carly checked it out. What she saw, to use her own word, “floored” her:

“Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen is perhaps the catchiest song I’ve ever heard.
—Justin Bieber

Carly tweeted back to Bieber, “Justin Bieber, you are the sweetest!”

Bieber’s girlfriend, recording artist Selena Gomez, launched a tweet as well saying that the two of them had not stopped listening to her song. Bieber then uploaded a video on YouTube in which he and friends dance to the song.

After the Bieber tweet, “Call Me Maybe” rose only 1 position—to #21. But the following week, January 13, 2012, it broke into the Top 10, was the 9th biggest in the country, then #4, #3, and on February 3, it hit #1.

As fate would have it, Carly was signed by Bieber’s management team, and the song was released internationally. While “Call Me Maybe” had been the Canadian song of the winter, it became to Britons the song of the spring; it debuted on the British charts at #1. Its climb in the United States, much like Canada, was slower but it eventually made it to #1 where it remained for an astounding 9 consecutive weeks, becoming that country’s song of the summer. Promotions took a while to manifest themselves in Japan, but once they did, the song topped the Japanese charts becoming their song of the autumn.

Amidst the whirlwind, on June 21, 2012, Music Canada announced via multi-platinum certifications, that “Call Me Maybe” had domestically outsold every other Canadian single in history.

Today, October 14, 2012, “Call Me Maybe” is still on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 celebrating a full year on the chart. And Carly herself is, with Justin Bieber, in the middle of a world tour of arena concerts whose tickets across North America sold out in less than 30 minutes. One year ago today, Carly would probably never have imagined playing before a crowd of 19,000 people at Rogers Arena, home of the Vancouver Canucks. But, heck, she did it!

Canadian Billboard Hot 100, 10 October 2012

Not much to halt the Zamboni driver over on this week’s singles chart.  There are no new Canadian entries.  Dean Brody has this week’s greatest gainer.  “It’s Friday” (which seems to be an answer to Gord Bamford’s “Is It Friday Yet?”) moved 19 positions up the chart from last week.  Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” celebrates being on the chart for 1 full year.  It landed on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 last year on the October 14th chart.  Coming up is a special feature on the song’s performance.

The Billboard Canadian Albums chart has more juicy fruits to offer.  Four Canadian albums have debuted in the Top 10.  They are new releases from The Tragically Hip (#3), Three Days Grace (#4), Diana Krall (#5), and Sylvain Cossette (#7).

Canadian Billboard Hot 100, 3 October 2012

Anjulie has done something spectacular.  Her single “You and I” managed to climb a whopping 27 positions up the chart from last week!  There are five brand new singles on the chart this week.  At #91 is deadmau5’s “Superliminal” (I hope I spelled that right).  His new studio album debuted at #2 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart.    Dean Brody’s “It’s Friday” landed at #83 and Dragonette’s new single, “Live in This City” off their newly released album is in the Hot 100 at #76.  Entering the Hot 100 at the robust position of #48 is “Closer” from Calgary’s twin sisters Tegan and Sara.  Top British band Keane gave this song its stamp of approval on Twitter saying “loving the new Tegan and Sara track”.  The highest charting debut on the chart is “Turn It Up” by Kardinal Offishall featuring Karl Wolf.

As we mentioned, deadmau5’s new album >album title goes here< is on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart at #2.  At #6 is folk artist Bernard Adamus’ No. 2.  And at #9 is Star Academie finalist Annie Villeneuve’s new release Telle Qu’elle.
