Mac DeMarco - Here Comes the Cowboy

Mac DeMarco is a singer-songwriter from Edmonton, Alberta. Shortly after finishing high school in 2008, DeMarco moved from his hometown to Vancouver and released Heat Wave, a collection of songs he wrote and recorded while bored in his new surroundings.

His fourth album, Here Comes the Cowboy, is filled with mellow tracks and visually captivating videos.

DeMarco said in an interview that he “wanted to make something greasy” and this song proves just that. “But I think anybody that actually had some funk to them would be like, ‘What the f*** is this, Mac?'”

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.
