Canadians are big fans of Benson Boone. The popular TikTok artist has claimed the No. 1 spot on this week's Canadian Hot 100 with his single "Beautiful Things," which debuted at No. 3 last week. Boone is doing well in the U.S., too, where "Beautiful Things" has moved up from No. 15 to No. 8, but in Canada he dethroned Jack Harlow's "Lovin On Me" to reach the top.

This is Boone's biggest success so far, following singles like "Ghost Town" and "In the Stars," both of which charted but didn't crack the top ten. "Beautiful Things" arrives ahead of an upcoming album, Fireworks and Rollerblades, and a world tour, with stops in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver this spring. Boone performed the hit single on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week, accompanied by a three-piece backing band and rocky red cliffs behind him. Will Boone be able to build momentum even further, and break into the U.S. top five?

Elsewhere on this week's chart, Canadian former professional wrestler Tom MacDonald debuts at No. 42 with "Facts." MacDonald has branded himself as an "anti-woke" rapper, and this song caters to rising right-wing movements, with lines lamenting the popularity of Black Lives Matter and rainbow flags positioned as truth-telling-slash-trolling. It also features former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro, and it debuted at No. 16 on the American Hot 100, driven by iTunes downloads. "We are living in a South Park episode," says a YouTube commenter.

Megan Thee Stallion's "Hiss," which claimed the top spot on the American Hot 100, debuts in Canada at No. 18. Justin Timberlake, who had last week's Hot New Radio Track with "Selfish," debuts at No. 22.

Tate McRae's "greedy" drops from 2-5 on this week's chart, and Shubh's "King Shit" falls 50-73. Josh Ross' "Ain't Doin' Jack" is up 78-74 and Alexander Stewart's "i wish you cheated" is up 96-95.
