Canadian Domination Expands

I reported last week that Canadians had locked up the Top Three slots on the US Hot 100. Not only does Canada hold onto that position for a third week, but a third Canadian artist (also from Ontario!) adds a FOURTH song to the Top 10.

As The Weeknd becomes just the 11th artist EVER to replace himself at #1 on the Hot 100, Drake’s new single bursts into the Top 10, roaring 16-9. All three Canadian artists (Justin Bieber, Drake, and The Weeknd) are from Ontario, Canada. Bieber is from London, Drake is from Toronto, and The Weeknd is from Scarborough.

How many weeks can Canada maintain its stranglehold? Sound off in the comments below.
