Sidhu Moose Wala's legacy lives on in Canadian music. A new single from the late Punjabi musician, in collaboration with Punjabi-Canadian artist Sunny Malton, debuted at No. 42 on this week's Billboard Canadian Hot 100.

"410" is a heady hip-hop track full of references to the Greater Toronto Area. Malton, who takes his name from Malton in Mississauga, name-checks Degrassi, Brampton and Drake in his first verse. "It's like welcome to the Region of Peel / it's getting scary," Malton raps, highlighting the region encompassing both Mississauga and Brampton.


Moose Wala, who lived in Brampton when he started releasing music, shoutouts B-town in the second verse. Even the song title is a reference to the highway that connects the 403 and 401 to Brampton.

The song is the latest posthumous Moose Wala release to hit the charts, following "Drippy," featuring AR Paisley, earlier this year. "Rest in Peace to the mother-fu--ing GOAT" Malton adds at the end of the track. The pair previously charted together in 2022 with "Levels," reaching No. 32 on the Canadian Hot 100.

Moose Wala, who helped spur the rise of Punjabi music in Canada, was murdered in 2022. AP Dhillon recently paid tribute to the influential icon during his debut Coachella performance, with visuals reading "JUSTICE FOR SIDHU MOOSEWALA."

Elsewhere on the charts, Atlanta rapper Ken Carson made his Canadian Hot 100 debut with "Overseas" at No. 93. The rising artist also landed on the U.S. Hot 100, making him a first-timer on both charts. Chappell Roan and Lay Bankz, who both had their first Canadian Hot 100 entries last week, are climbing this week. Bankz's "Tell Ur Girlfriend" moves up 64 to 33 and Roan's "Good Luck, Babe!" moves up 84 to 48. Bankz also entered the U.S. Hot 100 this week, a week after her Canadian arrival.

Other debuts include Sabrina Carpenter's "Espresso" at No. 7, Shaboozey's "A Bar Song (Tipsy)" at No. 14, Dua Lipa's "Illusion" at No. 28, and, at No. 41, "Gata Only" by FloyyMenor X Cris Mj, a Chilean hip-hop song that recently hit No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart.

While Hozier hit the top spot on the U.S. Hot 100 this week, Benson Boone is holding on in Canada, notching his ninth week at No. 1 with "Beautiful Things." Hozier and Teddy Swims maintain their respective spots at No. 2 and No. 3 with "Too Sweet" and "Lose Control."
