Update: voting for this week has ended but you can vote for next week's show here!
This week, the $88 million in ticket sales for the Bond film Skyfall has a major effect on the chart! Adele keeps fellow Brit band Mumford & Sons out of the number one spot with crazy high sales. Singer-songwriter-rapper K'naan makes a big move by hopping up the chart to number three, The Grapes of Wrath win the online vote for the fourth week in a row and Nova Scotia native Mo Kenney is back on the chart with her intimate song "Sucker."
Plus, two new entries to the chart: this year's American Idol winner Phillip Phillips debuts high at number 10 with his Mumford-&-Sons-esque track "Home" and Toronto-based band The Wilderness of Manitoba enter at number 18 with "Echoes."
They're so excited they've already tweeted, "ECHOES is on CBC Radio 2 top 20 this week! #thankyou!!"
