The Canadian Hot 100 is a music singles popularity chart issued weekly by Billboard magazine which ranks songs in Canada.

The chart 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.[1][2]

The first number-one song on this chart was "Umbrella" by Rihanna featuring Jay-Z on June 16, 2007.[3] As of the issue dated August 2, 2014, the Canadian Hot 100 has had 87 different number-one hits. The current number-one song is "Stay with Me" by Sam Smith.

History[edit]

The chart debuted in the Billboard issue dated June 16, 2007 and was made available for the first time via their online services on June 7, 2007.[4] With this launch, it marked the first time that Billboard created a Hot 100 chart for a country outside the United States. 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."
