On February 17 2001, Don’t Tell Me hit #1 on the SoundScan Canadian Singles chart, spending a single week at the top.

After the long-running Canadian music industry publication RPM folded in late 2000, Nielsen SoundScan (which had tracked music sales across Canada since 1996) became the country’s recognized national singles chart publisher until the introduction of Billboard’s Canadian Hot 100 in 2007. Don’t Tell Me was Madonna’s first single to reach its peak during the SoundScan Canadian chart era.

  1. Great Remix of a brilliant Country/Rock song!-Don’t Tell Me-song is named! Exhibit M-In brilliant Music ballad-cum-rocker Don’t Tell Me, Our Lady Madonna walks down a lonely Interstate highway but guess what? Madonna is happy and all is right with the world in her Rebel Heart! The fact the song was a hit with Rock Critics underscored that Madonna is right on target with rock & roll itself! Over fifteen years after Don’t Tell Me first graced Radio’s airwaves, Madonna remains one of Rock’s most vital and brilliant artists!
