In a world overrun by Covid-19, not to mention racial disputes and protesting in the streets, this doesn’t seem to hold the same significance that it usually would have. The latest PPM radio ratings were released today. The new PPM release from Numeris completes the thirteen-week period covering Feb. 24, 2020, to May 24, 2020. This period includes listening that occurred during the Covid-19 pandemic.


Home tuning has increased during this time frame. Currently, in-home tuning represents 62% of total tuning this spring compared to 48% last quarter for A12+.

Let’s look at the five PPM markets.

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.
