DVSN -  No Cryin' feat. Future (OVO Sound): In advance of a keenly-anticipated follow-up album to the acclaimed 2017 LP Morning After, the Toronto R&B duo, comprising singer Daniel Daley and Grammy-winning producer Nineteen85, releases a new track featuring chart-topping US rapper Future. No Cryin arrives after two previous songs, Miss Me and In Between, from the group were shared earlier this year.


Nineteen85 explains in a press release that "After 60 shows on the road together for the Summer Sixteen Tour, we've linked with Future to bring fans new music. Since producing the outro on Future’s album, THE WIZRD, we're definitely no strangers in the studio. The timing couldn’t have been better for this one!"

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.
