By Kerry Doole

Lindi Ortega - "Lovers In Love - feat. Corb Lund" (Indie): Here's a duet made in honkytonk heaven. Lindi Ortega and Corb Lund both have deep roots in authentic country and western, so hearing their two distinctive voices together on this track will be a real treat for their fans.

This acoustic version of “Lovers In Love” featuring Lund was released on Ortega’s Liberty Parkhill Sessions earlier this year. Recorded at the Parkhill Studios in Calgary, the stripped-down, three-song session also includes versions of “Forever Blue” and “The Comeback Kid,” which were part of Ortega’s acclaimed LP Liberty.


The song is a testimony to the magic and mystery of enduring love. The pair trade verses, with Ortega's trademark haunting sound meshing neatly with Lund's ruggedly virile voice. The track is further enhanced by a striking lyric video with a sepia tone evocative of the old west that clearly inspires both Ortega and Lund.

Ortega's work has never quite achieved the commercial success it deserves, but few artists can match the press adulation it has received. Those praising her recent work include TheGuardian, Pitchfork, The New York Times, and Rolling Stone Country.

She has US shows, Nov. 4-17. Check dates here

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.
