It’s official: Canada is bodying the Billboard charts in October.
For the last two weeks, The Weeknd’s “The Hills” and “I Can’t Feel My Face” have shared the top four spots of the Hot 100, with Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” and Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” This is the first time Canadian artists have filled the chart's top four spots.
On top of that, between "Hotline Bling," “Back To Back,” and What A Time To Be Alive, Drake has 15 tracks in the Hot 100 alone. Can "Hotline Bling" keep this momentum up, and become Drake's first No. 1 single? What a time to be The Boy
The last time Canada had a similar stranglehold on the Billboard Hot 100 was in 1998, when R. Kelly and Céline Dion's "I'm Your Angel" sat at No.1, with "Nobody's Supposed to Be Here" by Deborah Cox in second, and Shania Twain's "From This Moment On" sitting fourth on the chart.
It’s worth noting that Pickering, Ontario-born teen Vine hunk Shawn Mendes sits at No. 9 on the chart with “Stitches,” meaning that Canadians have half of the Top 10 conquered.
America, this is only the beginning. We’re already dominating your charts, and next, we’re coming for the World Series title. Just wait on it.
