From January 2007 to June 2007, the number-one singles in Canada were compiled by the American-based music sales tracking company, Nielsen SoundScan. The chart is compiled every Wednesday, and is published by Jam! Canoe on Thursdays.[1] In June 2007, Billboard mMagazine created the Canadian Hot 100, a chart specifically designed for Canada and the first Hot 100 chart that Billboard created a for a country outside the United States. The chart first appeared in the Billboard issue dated June 16, 2007, and was made available for the first time via their online services on June 7, 2007.

Canadian Singles Chart: January 2007 - June 2007[edit]

U2's "The Saints Are Coming" spent 3 weeks at number-one, where it was then replaced by the band's "Window in the Skies", which spent another 8 weeks at number-one.
30 Seconds to Mars' "The Kill" reached number-one for two weeks in March.
Nine Inch Nails' "Survivalism" was number-one for 5 weeks, before the Canadian Singles Chart was replaced with the Canadian Hot 100.

The following lists the number one best-selling singles in Canada in 2007 published in Billboard magazine under the Hits of the World section.[2] Only songs released as physical singles qualified for this chart during this time. During this period, the singles market in Canada was very limited in both scope and availability, and in many cases, these songs received little or no radio support. For tracks other than those by American Idol or Canadian Idol winners, sales were likely to be less than 1,000 per week. Nevertheless, this was the only singles chart Canadians had until June 2007, when the Canadian Hot 100 was released to the public. It also lists other big hits in the sales chart.

Note that Billboard publishes charts with an issue date approximately 7–10 days in advance.

Canadian Hot 100: June 2007 - December 2007[edit]

Rihanna's "Umbrella", which featured Jay-Z (right), was the chart's first number-one single.

The Canadian Hot 100 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.[3] 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."

In 2007, eight singles topped the Canadian Hot 100. Timbaland's "Apologize", featuring OneRepublic, was the longest-running chart-topping single of 2007; it was the number-one single for the last nine weeks of 2007, and the first four weeks in 2008. The song was also the longest-running chart-topping single since the formation of the Canadian Hot 100 until 2009, when The Black Eyed Peas surpassed the record with "I Gotta Feeling". Rihanna's "Umbrella" stayed at number one for four straight weeks, while Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry", Timbaland's "The Way I Are", Plain White T's' "Hey There Delilah", and Kanye West's "Stronger" stayed at number one for three weeks; the latter two were non-consecutive. Timbaland was the only artist to have earned two number-one singles in 2007, and his singles were number-one for a combined 12 weeks.[4]

Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" stayed in the number-one spot for three consecutive weeks in July.
