By External Source

Four awards of US$2,500 will be given to first-generation refugee or immigrant students in the United States to commemorate the Grammy Award-winning pop-rock band celebrating a decade together and the launch of two new singles: Follow You and Cutthroat.


The scholarship’s inspiration comes from Imagine Dragons’ experience performing around the world and witnessing the power of music as an international language that connects people from all backgrounds, cultures and walks of life. The Las Vegas group has gained empathy for those who come from different cultures, especially those who’ve started a new life and faced educational and financial challenges in the U.S. – Steve McLean has the full story that you can read on SamaritanMag.com

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.
