Canadian Hot 100

The Canadian Hot 100 is a music singles popularity chart issued weekly by Billboard magazine which ranks songs in Canada. The chart premiered in the Billboard issue dated June 16, 2007 and was made available for the first time via their online services on June 7, 2007. [1]

The Canadian Hot 100 is similar to Billboard's U.S.-based Hot 100 in that it combines sales via digital downloads, as measured by Nielsen SoundScan, and Canadian radio audience levels as measured by Nielsen BDS. Canada's airplay chart is the result of monitoring more than 100 stations representing rock, country, adult contemporary and Top 40 genres. [2] [3] As they have traditionally done with the rollout of other new charts, Billboard compiled unpublished "test" charts prior to its premiere (these ranks were displayed in the first chart's "last week" and "two weeks ago" columns). The online version of the chart also features Canadian flag icons next to song titles by Canadian artists.

Billboard charts manager Geoff Mayfield announced the premiere of the chart, explaining "the new Billboard Canadian Hot 100 will serve as the definitive measure of Canada's most popular songs, continuing our magazine's longstanding tradition of using the most comprehensive resources available to provide the world's most authoritative music charts."

With this launch, it marks the first time that Billboard has created a Hot 100 chart for a non-U.S. country. The first number-one song on this chart was "Umbrella" by Rihanna featuring Jay-Z.[4]
