French Canadian flare.
There is no doubt that Montreal's Bobby Bazini is a fan favourite. With his brooding yet boyish good looks and his soulful voice, what's not to like? He takes the number one spot with "Heavy Love." Here's a little early Bazini for you. This is his breakout single, "I Wonder," from 2010.
Songs in the key of life
Royal Wood's latest album, The Burning Bright, is intense and deeply personal. After just one week on the chart it seems that he's hit a chord with his fans. "White Flag" moves up eight spots this week.
Tegan and Sara are nominated for four Juno Awards this weekend, and if that isn't enough reason to celebrate, the sister act enters the R2-20 chart at 15. Woot!
