Lydia Ainsworth - Can You Find Her Place

The beautiful visual for Lydia Ainsworth’s Can You Find Her Place is heavily inspired by Boticelli’s painting Primavera, a mythological allegory of the fertility of the earth. Throughout the video, characters resembling the Greek gods of the painting dancing as they surround the singer. The video is light and colourful, which perfectly accompany Ainsworth’s vocals.

The song touches on the idea of all of the places you can find strength in the face of humanity's hubris and sings from a unique POV,  "In my song Can You Find Her Place I am singing from the perspective of a Greek choir, setting the stage for Mother Nature’s reveal.”

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.
