From big beats to softly sung ballads to riveting rock, Canadian acts among best in the business.
Unsurprisingly, we spent this year listening to a ton of music — because, let’s face it, what else was there to do? — and as usual, Canadian talent was our 2021 highlight. Artists from the Great North spent this year putting out albums that were innovative, addictive, and cooler than our winter temperatures. So, if whether you’re looking for groovy rap beats or soulful singer-songwriter ballads, put a little Canada on your playlist!
Here are our top Canadian albums of 2021 in order of preference.
