Tanya Tagaq - Teeth Agape

From Ikaluktutiak - Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, Tanya Tagaq is an internationally celebrated artist, and charismatic performer, as well as a composer and bestselling author. She has won various awards such as the Polaris Music Prize and has received multiple honorary doctorates.

Tagaq’s single Teeth Agape is taken from her newest album Tongues. The music video for Teeth Agape was created as an animated video by David Seitz. The video shows animated wolves that emulate Tagaq as a protective mother. The animation shows off the emotion in Tagaq’s voice to an intense beat which truly lays down the tone of the song.

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.
