2015 was a banner year for Canadian music. For the first time ever, Canadians held the top four spots of the Billboard Hot 100. Eight Canadians were nominated for a total of 18 Grammy awards. We were blessed by not one, but TWO Drake projects. Grimes and Justin Bieber dropped highly anticipated records, and new contenders like Jazz Cartier and Tobias Jesso Jr. emerged with breakout albums. On top of all of this, The Weeknd revealed himself to be the predestined biggest pop star on the planet.
