Nova Scotian-based Sound of Pop has signed a sub-publishing agreement with New York-based boutique production house Figure and Groove for representation here.


Founded in 2001, Sound of Pop (SOP) is an award-winning Music Publishing and Master/Sync representation company with a growing catalogue of over 1000 songs by Canadian artists/songwriters including Chris Kirby, Fairgale, Quote the Raven, Brianna Gosse, Chris Ryan, FM Berlin, Candice Sand, and Coco Love Alcorn.

SOP also represents international acts Kidneythieves (US), Voltaire Twins (Australia) and Bettie Serveert (Netherlands) for sync.

Sound of Pop’s Tim Hardy said: “It’s amazing how these things get started. The process began at a meeting with a music biz friend in London, England who subsequently suggested Sound of Pop to another UK colleague of hers who was looking for a Canadian sub-publisher for one of his New York-based clients. After a few emails & Skype calls, we all agreed it was a great fit and signed the agreement on July 1st, Canada Day."

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.
