From music to movies: Apple releases its Canadian 'Best of 2017' lists

Dec 7 2017, 11:54 pm

As we get closer to the end of 2017, ‘Trends’ and ‘Best Of’ lists are beginning to circulate the web.

And one of the more important lists is easily Apple’s breakdown of what Canadians are listening to, watching, and playing with the most.

Apple’s “Best of 2017” list shows that 2017 was the year of Ed Sheeran, as he took the top album spot with his album “÷”, while his song “Shape of You” took the top song spot.

Toronto’s very own Drake took the second spot with his “More Life” album, which was followed by The Weeknd’s “Starboy”, Kendrick Lamar’s “DAMN”, and Taylor Swift’s recently released album “Reputation”.

But music wasn’t the only “Best Of” released today.

Apple also celebrated the most downloaded movies, television shows, apps and podcasts. Check out the best of everything, according to Apple, below.
