The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded recently to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile the nominated videos, including this one from quirky singer/songwriter Peter Sager. Slaight Music is Patron Sponsor for the Prism Prize.


Homeshake - Just Like My

To accompany his dreamy new single, Just Like My, Homeshake (aka Peter Sager) delivers a video, which is in equal measures ethereal and downright peculiar, or as Sager himself described it, “calm and weird.”

The video (a collaboration between Canadian director Oliver McGarvey and German artist Eric Winkler) begins in a cold, desolate forest. Our protagonist, an almost nymph-like creature, dressed in bright pink pants and a white puffer jacket, aimlessly wanders. But she’s not alone. As she meanders about, tall figures draped in tattered rags (referred to as “Spirits” in the video credits), dance around her. They pique her curiosity, she gets close, examines them, she wants to know more -  but in the same instance, she’s frightened by them, quietly bothered by their existence.

Are the bedraggled figures forest monsters? A figment of her imagination? Embodiments of ghosts from her past? Director McGarvey provides the viewer with a lot of space to interpret them as you wish.

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.
