Bruce Springsteen released his new album High Hopes on Jan. 14, 2014, and shot straight to the top of Canada’s CD sales. The Boss’ new album was forced to share the spotlight with an old favourite – Springsteen’s 1995 Greatest Hits album was catapulted back into Canada’s top 10 CDs by national sales.
Springsteen’s album release shook up the Canadian top 10 albums from last week. While Lorde, Katy Perry, Eminem and Beyonce’s new albums all managed to stay in the top 10, not every pop artist was. Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz and One Direction’s Midnight Memories were both knocked out of the top 10.
