Four of Billboard’s top 5 albums are by Canadian artists

If you're a Canadian musician that released a Christmas album, odds are good that you're dominating the charts. Billboard magazine released its list of top-selling albums last week -- not only are four out of the five top albums by Canadian artists, but the top two Canuck records are holiday-themed.

Michael Bublé's "Christmas" sits at No.1, and although British songstress Adele's "21" still holds the second spot after 41 weeks, it's followed by another festive album, Justin Bieber's "Under the Mistletoe," at No. 3.

While Bublé has been working his vocal cords to the bone on the small-screen circuit to promote his holiday album, the Bieb's third position was no doubt buoyed by the release of his controversial new music video for "All I Want for Christmas" with Mariah Carey.

Rounding out the top five, respectively, were Drake (for "Take Care") and Nickelback (with "Here and Now"). Take that, Detroit!

While chart-topping regulars Mary J. Blige ("My Life II: The Journey Continues") and Rihanna ("Talk That Talk") easily moved into spots 6 and 7, other hit-makers tried and failed to land at the top of the charts with holiday tunes. "Glee's" Christmas extravaganza ("Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album Volume 2") topped out at No. 13 while "America's Got Talent" wunderkind Jackie Evancho settled in at No. 15 with "Heavenly Christmas."

Sounds like this year's holiday season, appropriately, belongs to the Great White North.
