Chart Watch Canada: August 13, 2009

Our weekly recap of veteran artists on the current Canadian music charts. Chart highlights:
  • When someone said the boom in sales for Michael Jackson would continue into the fall, we didn't really believe them. It looks like we were wrong. Jackson continues to have 9 of the top 100 albums in Canada (down from 11 last week) including Number Ones and Thriller holding in the top ten. On the R&B Album chart, he holds 13 spots, the same as last week, including seven of the top ten.
  • AC/DC have also had a big week with Black Ice surging from 75 to 46 on the Album and 10 to 4 on the Hard Rock Album charts. In total, they have seven of the top 50 in Hard Rock while Metallica is currently five.
  • New to the Canadian Album chart is Frank Sinatra's Live From the Meadowlands, premiering at 74. The album has been charting in the U.S. for the last three months.
  • Madonna's new single, Celebration, premiers at 77 on the Canadian singles chart. It's from her forthcoming greatest hits album of the same name.
  • The new Whitney Houston single has provided renewed interest in her Greatest Hits collection, which returns her to the R&B Album chart at 31.
