Robyn Dell'Unto jumps up the chart
Toronto's Robyn Dell'Unto has a knack for writing smart, snappy pop tunes with mass appeal. She's been teaching little kids those same skills through her A Song of My Own program. The youngsters should be proud: Dell'Unto not only picked up the most online votes this week, she's also this week's hot-shooter up 11 massive spots. The tune is called "Sidecar."
Sam Smith is more than just a pretty face
Soulful U.K. crooner Sam Smith is on a roll. He won a Brit Award this year and just completed a triumphant appearance on Saturday Night Live. Check it out, this guy is the real deal. He enters the R2-20 in the top five with the gospel banger "Stay with Me."
Basia Bulat, be our best friend?
She's got charm to spare and a voice that draws you close. Etobicoke, Ontario's Basia Bulat enters the chart at 20, with the tune "Promise Not to Think About Love." Sigh.
