David Del Rossario is a music video director and audio engineer from Toronto, serving local and international clients. With over 100 million views of his work, his videos have been featured on World Star Hip Hop.

Tony Blairk, known as Teddy, is a music video director from Toronto and a University of Wilfred Laurier alumni. He is a part of RISK IT ALL INC.

On Go is an honourable mention for the top 6 Canadian videos on We Love Hip Hop’s Demon and Chill podcast episode 206.

The music video boldly plays with blue and red tones, as footage cuts from grainy shots to night time vibes. The shots are cleverly timed with the music, bumping with the catchiness of ‘On Go’ and shows the creative genius of the directors. The consistent visuals of cars and dancers tie the scenes of Brampton nightlife together.

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.
