After a debut in the top ten last week, his highest chart performance ever, the late Punjabi musician Sidhu Moose Wala spends a second week on the charts with "Drippy." The posthumous single, produced by MXRCI and featuring Canadian artist AR Paisley, lands at No. 56 on the Canadian Hot 100 this week. The song has also amassed nearly 25 million YouTube views in two weeks and is making international news.

BBC reported on the song's chart impact this week, speaking with Billboard Canada editor Richard Trapunski about the song's high debut, and how it indicates the broader momentum of Punjabi music in Canada, as well as the special place that Sidhu Moose Wala holds within that growth.

Elsewhere on the chart, Beyoncé's "Texas Hold Em," debuts at No. 11 in Canada, and at No. 2 on the U.S. Hot 100. It also topped the Country Songs chart, making Beyoncé the first Black woman to do so. Though it's performing better south of the border, the song has a strong Canadian connection. Three Canadian songwriters — Lowell, Bülow and Nathan Ferraro — assisted in penning it, and Ferraro also co-produced the track, which comes ahead of the superstar's new album, Act II, out March 29. Another single from that album, "16 Carriages," debuted at No. 78 in Canada, and features production and performances by Canadian Dave Hamelin of The Stills.

Canadians are otherwise fairly absent from the chart this week. Tate McRae's "Greedy" drops two places to No. 4, Drake's "Rich Baby Daddy" falls six places to No. 35, and LU Kala's "Hotter Now" spends its thirteenth week on the Canadian Hot 100 at No. 58. McRae has two other charting songs, and Drake has three.
