Calgary’s Tate McRae is everywhere right now — from SNL to the Billboard Music Awards — and now she can add the top of the Canadian charts. McRae’s “Greedy” is her first No. 1 in Canada, and also sits atop the Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts. She made it to No. 1 in her home country before the U.S., where she's based, but her song has been climbing the charts since its Sept. 15 release. It moved up one spot to No. 8 on the Hot 100 this week, its highest placement yet.


“Greedy” isn’t McRae’s only charting hit, either. Her latest single, “Exes,” entered the Canadian charts this week (Dec. 2) at No. 9 and sits at No. 34 on the Hot 100. In her Billboard cover story, McRae spoke about her rise from Alberta high schooler to global star — and these “Exes” placements indicate the success of “Greedy” isn’t an anomaly.

Quebec folk rock legends Les Cowboys Fringants also have three songs on the Canadian Hot 100 this week, following the death of lead singer Karl Tremblay. “L’amerique Pleure” re-enters the chart at No. 27, after initially charting in 2019. “Les Etoiles Filantes” and “Sur Mon Epaule” make their first appearances, at No. 23 and No. 36, respectively. The Cowboys Fringants album L’Amerique Pleure — the soundtrack to a live performance film from 2021 — also sits at No. 3 on the Canadian Albums chart.

Elsewhere on the charts, LU KALA enters with empowerment-anthem “Hotter Now” at No. 92. The Congolese-Canadian singer made her Hot 100 debut earlier this year with a feature on Latto’s “Lottery.Charlotte Cardin’s “Confetti” drops down to No. 21 from No. 12, and Diljit Dosanjh’s SIA collab “Hass Hass” falls from No. 50 to No. 71. Dosanjh recently announced an upcoming performance at Vancouver’s BC Place in 2024, expected to be the largest ever Punjabi music performance outside of India.

Meanwhile, Drake continues his For All The Dogs dominance. The Toronto superstar currently holds fifteen spots on the Canadian Hot 100, with all of the new songs on his For All The Dogs Scary Hours Edition charting. “You Broke My Heart,” is the highest entry, at No. 8; J. Cole collaboration “Evil Ways” enters at No. 31; “Red Button” and “The Shoe Fits” land back to back at No. 37 and No. 38.

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

The Toronto quartet brought their viral single into their late night TV debut.

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
