Charlotte Cardin's '99 Nights' Debuts on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100

Nearly a year after its release, the title track from the Quebec singer's Juno Award winning album charts at No. 97 — a tough week to debut as the Hot 100 is taken over by Taylor Swift's TheTortured Poets Department.

Though it's been more than 99 nights since her album release, Charlotte Cardin is still gaining steam.

The title track off of her sophomore record, which came out in August 2023, lands on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 this week for the first time. "99 Nights" is at No. 97 on the chart, a month after Cardin won the Juno Award for album of the year for the album of the same name. She performed the album's biggest single, "Confetti," at the awards ceremony.


Where "Confetti" is an understated dance track, "99 Nights" is more rock influenced, driven by a stable guitar strum and a heavy bass tone. The spacious, delayed vocals give the song a hazy feel, as Cardin describes the desperation and confusion of feeling a partner pull away.

The rest of the Canadian Hot 100 is dominated by pop behemoth Taylor Swift, following the release of The Tortured Poets Department. Swift grabs the top spot from Benson Boone with her Post Malone collab "Fortnight," and has a few more songs debuting on the chart this week (30, to be exact). Boone does stay in the top 10 though, where Swift has all top 14 spots on the U.S. Hot 100.

Drake's diss track "Push Ups" also lands on the chart amidst his feud with Kendrick Lamar, coming in at No. 12 (though his follow-up, "Taylor Made Freestyle," was taken down from streaming services after a cease and desist from Tupac Shakur's estate, citing the AI-generated use of Shakur's voice.) Kendrick Lamar's response "Euphoria" since dropped, so it should be interesting to see how "Push Ups" fares next week.
