It's a new day. For the first time ever, a Canadian has reached the top of this chart. Serena Ryder has managed to knock out the major Bond single, "Skyfall" by Adele with her party of a song, "Stompa." All because of your votes!
Make sure to listen to the show this week, because there's a tiny surprise at the end. Here's Serena singing this week's number one.
Also on the chart, the band Walk Off The Earth jumps in at number 18. These folks gained fame with their YouTube video covering Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" with several artists on a single guitar. Today they've got their own music to share and a really fun video for the single "Red Hands." It has confetti! Lots of it.
Plus, The Grapes of Wrath destroy the online vote for the fifth straight week with "Good To See You." I think they should take a cue from Lady Gaga and name their fans. She calls hers "little monsters." My vote for The Grapes of Wrath: "tiny grapes." Just throwing it out there.
