Katie Tupper - Danny

Katie Tupper is a singer, songwriter, and producer from Saskatoon, Canada. At a young age, she learned to play piano and fell in love with writing music and lyrics. She has mentioned that some of her musical influences growing up were Canadian pop punk bands as well as various neo-soul artists. Katie is a very soulful and creative artist - qualities which are shown in her music. Currently, Katie’s single How Can I Get Your Love? is featured on CBC Music’s Top 20.

Katie’s songs display her ethereal vocals and melodies - which are sure to draw you in. Katie will release an EP soon entitled Towards The End’, produced by Connor Seidel (Charlotte Cardin, Matt Holubowski). Her debut EP will have songs that carry messages about identity and love -  paired with fun, intimate and soulful music.

With the support of the MVP Project, Katie has released her newest music video for the song Danny. The video will take you on a comical yet picturesque post-break-up quest. Danny follows Katie as she looks for closure while taking a trip through the forest, walking by a lake and rock climbing. It is very clear that this video shows both literal and figurative symbols for carrying emotional baggage from an ex-partner.

Director and producer of the music video for Danny, Mashie Alam, has a diverse body of directional work. She loves cinematic and architectural aesthetics - which can be seen clearly in this video. Overall, the video for Danny is dreamlike, aesthetically pleasing and a joy to watch.

Karan Aujla & DIVINE Debut in Top 25 on Billboard Canadian Albums Chart

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE land the No. 22 spot on this week's Canadian Albums chart with their new collaborative release, 'Street Dreams.' On the Canadian Hot 100, Beyoncé's "Texas Hold 'Em" ascends to No. 1, while Canadian pop artist Preston Pablo makes a debut.

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE are making moves together on Billboard's Canadian Albums chart this week, with their collaborative project, Street Dreams, debuting in the No. 22 spot.

The seven-track album, released Feb. 16, blends harder hip-hop and smooth R&B pop, the latter shining through especially on the Jonita Gandhi-assisted "Yaad." It's not Aujla's highest spot on the Albums chart — he reached No. 5 in 2023 with Making Memories, his collaboration with Canadian Punjabi artist Ikky — but it gives him some momentum going into his upcoming performance at the Juno Awards on Mar. 24, where he's nominated for TikTok Juno fan choice and breakthrough artist.
