Scott Helman Creating Mural, Releasing Song About Climate Crisis

By Aaron Brophy

Toronto pop singer Scott Helman has created a wall mural installation and is releasing a song to raise awareness about the ongoing climate crisis.


The Bungalow and PDA singer launched the mural Nov. 21 in Toronto along with artist Kayla Buium (Milkbox). The painting will include messages of concern about the climate crisis collected from Helman supporters in recent weeks as part of the Evergreen Project.

"For the past few weeks, an anonymous form on my website has been collecting testimonies about the climate crisis," Helman said in a statement.

"We’ve received over 600 entries and have compiled them into a document entitled The Evergreen Manuscript."

Helman and Buium will illustrate these testimonies on the mural. Members of the public who attend to watch the creation of the mural will have the opportunity to add their own message.

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.
