O’Canada, O’Canada! Today is Canada Day!

Our global neighbors celebrate their country’s independence, just like us Americans are preparing to celebrate for the 4th of July.

C parades, carnivals, BBQs, fireworks and even free musical concerts are all planned for the big day. 

Although Canada has a small population for its enormous land size, it has managed to pump out some the hottest chart-topping artists.

Canadian bred artists like Young Money rapper Drake have risen from their hometowns and reached local and international success.

Many people forget that cute Justin Bieber calls Ontario, Canada his home. Justin’s taken the U.S. by storm with his catchy music and dope dance moves, but he can also thank Canada for contributing to his success. 

So today, GlobalGrind wants to celebrate with our fellow Canadians by taking a look at artists who’ve made their mark on the music industry.
