About Canadian Top 50

 

Music followers and critics frequently check out the Canadian Top 50 list after looking at the music charts in the US. This is quite logical because the country is one of the most important music industry markets in the world. Its proximity to the US makes it interesting especially when it reflects a different trend compared to its neighboring counterpart. It should also be noted that there is a rising number of significant Canadian recording artists and singers, who are coming out and releasing well-followed singles and albums.

How is the Canadian Top 50 generated? Traditionally, there are specific music sales tracking companies that compile a chart for top selling singles released in the country. For better and more detailed monitoring, the list is generated and released on a weekly basis. Of course, this system makes it easier for record companies to constantly check sales performance of the singles and albums they release. Those firms may opt to bolster their marketing and promotions efforts to help boost interest and sales of their singles.

It was in the middle of the 1990s when Canadian top hits started being listed in charts. That time, most lists featured 200 songs, wherein the listing of the top 50 are officially released. However, it is a common knowledge that since then, the singles market in Canada has been reduced, which is not unique to the country. Logically, traditional sales of singles and albums have been decreasing dramatically.

Consequently, traditional Canadian Top 50 hit lists are not reflective anymore of the listening habits of music followers in the country. Thus, by the end of the 20th century, some singles stayed in the Canadian charts for several years. By 2004, local sales of singles and records further declined. But it was nothing to be alarmed about. It signaled the emergence of another form of selling music to consumers.

Digital downloading of music has been gaining popularity since then. Thus, it was just ideal for this form of sales to be incorporated into the list of top singles and albums. Today, music charts in Canada are mostly derived from digital download sales.

Canadian radio audience levels still remain as a contributing factor for generation of the hit list. There are airplay music charts that are based on the frequency of playing and the volume of listener’s requests in more than a hundred radio stations that are currently operating across the country. It is interesting to note that different music genres are covered when monitoring radio audience preference from rock to hip hop and country.

It is always interesting to check out music charts outside the US. This way, we could determine the listening preferences and priorities of music followers in other important markets. The Canadian Top 50 serves as a definitive measure of the most popular songs in the country based on sales and radio playlists. This list now modifies the longstanding tradition of the use of comprehensive available resources to provide a realistic music chart. Check out what singles are hot in Canada this week.
