Punjabi-Canadian star AP Dhillon has dropped a new collaboration with UK grime star Stormzy. The suave single arrives ahead of Dhillon's debut Coachella performance on Sunday, April 14.

"This what happens when you mix Punjab Royalty with South London's finest," Stormzy announces in the intro to "Problems Over Peace." Dhillon enters with a cool vocal: "We live by our instincts and not by the book," Dhillon sings in Punjabi.


Accompanied by sleek guitar riffs and soft high hats, the two artists assert their power as two leading artists in global hip-hop scenes with major momentum.

Dhillon will play both weekends at Coachella this month, and is joined on the lineup by fellow Punjabi-Canadian artist NAV. Their performances follow last year's historic set by Diljit Dosanjh, the first all-Punjabi performance at the major festival.

Dhillon is already a star in his own right — his songs often perform amongst Spotify's top tracks in India, and he performed his first Canadian shows at arenas. The Stormzy collab and Coachella performances will only increase the artist's growing profile, and contribute to Punjabi music's growing popularity in North American and U.K. markets.

Artists like Dhillon and recent Juno-winner Karan Aujla are landing placements on all-genre charts and playing increasingly high-profile events, as the Punjabi Wave continues to swell.

Check out the full Coachella lineup here and here are the details on how to tune into the livestream.

The industry icon behind many of the biggest world tours of the last year started out at a punk venue in Toronto.
