Taylor Swift's '1989 (Taylor's Version)'

Last week, Luminate put out its 2023 year-end report. While Luminate, the data company that tabulates Billboard's charts, as well as providing data for the film and TV industries, usually puts out a separate Canadian report, this year's was instead a report on the global music industry as a whole.

Billboard Canada FYIasked the company if they could supply any more data on who and what was hot in Canada in 2023, and they dug in for four more exclusive lists.


Head here for stats on total album consumption, on-demand song streaming and album sales in Canada, as well as catalogue vs. current release consumption and other charts.
