Who runs the world?

After owning the charts in 2013, Serena Ryder kicks off the new year on top. Her latest album, Harmony, is crammed full of hummable hits, and she's got the whole world singing along thanks to her gruelling tour schedule. Ryder ascends to the number one spot this week with "Fall."

The boys are back

The members of Blue Rodeo weren't completely sure if they were making a new album when they started laying down the tracks for their 13th disc, In Our Nature. What started out as a few songs blossomed into one very well crafted and critically loved album. The guys are on tour right now, but if you can't wait to see them live, here's a video from their CBC recording session at Greg Keelor's farmhouse. Blue Rodeo rocket up the charts this week into the number 10 spot with "New Morning Sun."
