Shane Carter


Sony Music Canada had some key successes this year under President Shane Carter. One of the most impactful international Canadian artists is from Sony: Tate McRae. Though she’s mostly hubbed in the U.S., it’s been a few years since Canada has had a breakthrough star on the level of Justin Bieber or Shawn Mendes, and she could be the next one. Her hit “greedy” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Global and Canadian Hot 100 and rose to No. 3 on the American Hot 100. Montreal pop artist Charlotte Cardin, who is on Sony Canada via Cult Nation, also hit her first U.S. charts and went on a major international tour, taking a break to win a set of Junos. Grassroots Indigenous hip-hop duo Snotty Nose Rez Kids are a recent signing to Sony Music Canada directly, and their major label debut has the makings to be another big breakthrough.
