Teddy co-wrote and performs on “Shine A Light,” Adams’ latest single that is the title track from his 14th studio album that is set for release by Polydor (UMC) on March 1.


 “I met Ed in Dublin this year at one of his shows and we kept in touch,” Adams explains. “One day I sent him a chorus I had for a song idea I had called ‘Shine A Light’ and asked him if he was interested in collaborating on it. I got a couple of verses back a few days later, and man you should hear him sing it!”

Shine a Light's 12 tracks include a duet with Jennifer Lopez called "That's How Strong Our Love Is."

The knighted Canadian “Summer of ‘69” singer hits the road Jan. 22 on a national nine date sold-out Canadian ‘Shine A Light’ tour that runs through February 1, and starting Jan. 30 on CTV, Adams will guest on the new six-episode second season of The Launch.

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.
