Walk Off The Earth - Love You Right feat. Lukas Graham (Golden Carrot Records/The Orchard): For this new single and video, the Juno-winning pop hitmakers from Burlington, ON, team up with Grammy-nominated Danish group Lukas Graham.


Describing the track in a press release, WOTE explains: "We’ve all been through relationships full of challenges that are worth fighting for. With Love You Right, we wanted to write a song that embodies the ups and downs of this emotional journey and tell the story of two lovers vying for redemption. By communicating the ways that they feel they’ve wronged one another, they’re able to find common ground and make a promise to do better.”

The tune features alternating male and female lead vocals, and gradually builds in scope with massed backing voices. There are no great lyrical insights here (sample: “We hurt the ones we love the most, I wish I knew the reasons why”), but the obvious sincerity at play here wins the day.

The band's material recently surpassed 1 billion cumulative YouTube views, and this new clip is quickly adding to the total. Since 2020, Walk Off the Earth has released a series of original singles including the Canadian chart-topping Nicknames. The group recently wrote and produced Journey Starts Today, the official theme song for Netflix's Pokémon Journeys: The Series.

Look for this new single to boost WOTE's following in Europe, given the Lukas Graham connection. Other major international artists the band has collaborated with include Keith Urban, Snoop Dogg, Nicky Romero, and Steve Aoki.

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.
