Orville Peck - Big Sky

Orville Peck is described as a masked queer country artist. The name Orville Peck is a pseudonym to hide his identity. No one knows who he is, or how old he is, but there is speculation that he is possibly older than 20 but younger than 40. He has quickly made a major international splash.

Big Sky gives off a dark country / western type of vibe. It foreshadows the type of danger Peck wants to bring to the country music scene. The song showcases a story of flawed lovers and injured minds. The video showcases fast-moving images in order to convey the message of the song.

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.
