How are we feeling music fans? Welcome back to another Music Monday for the Weekly Beat Down. The weekly competition that pins two amazing Canadian artists against one another. You the fans will have from Monday to Saturday night to enter your votes for your favourite song this week. Of course, the song counting with the most votes at the end of the week will proceed to the next round and closer to Victory. What I mean is if they can successfully complete 6 weeks in a row on our show, they will be entered into our Hall of Fame. The highest honour in my eyes, but those will not be the only treats you get to take in this weeks video below. I’ve recommended four articles and artists that I’m sure you’re going to enjoy. They are appropriately titled “Zach’s Picks Of The Week” and they will be featured after our competition showcase. So let’s get things started this week in the video below you will see, The Weekly Beat Down.
Alright first up, they are returning after taking away the top spot from the competition last week. Toronto-based alternative punk rock band, Napoleon, return with the video for their single “Can’t Forget”. It’s fresh off of their new EP Enemy Within, it’s out now so check it out! This EP features some incredible guest vocalists, such as Shane Told of Silverstein and Corbin Giroux of RARITY. It’s a phenomenal EP to listen to, so go and check out Enemy Within online. But if you enjoyed Napoleon’s new single “Can’t Forget” be sure to cast your vote for your favourite song this week. It’s up to you at home so get to work and enjoy the full video just down below for “Can’t Forget”.
Next up we’ve got a fantastic debut from a rapper in Edmonton who just dropped the brand new single. Arlo Maverick makes it on the show and brings his new song called “Tap It” along with him, it also features amazing guest vocals from Dominican rooted singer Oozeela. It is now available on all streaming platforms and should be added to your playlist immediately. But the video was directed by Maverick and revolves around the story of a young woman from an immigrant family. She disrupts the path expected of her to gain more social status. If this song sounds like it’s your favourite this week, be sure to cast your vote at the bottom of the page. But let’s check out the full music video for “Tap It” by Arlo Maverick and Oozeela right here on the Weekly Beat Down.
Those will be the two songs facing off for your votes, so you better get to work and cast them down below. You have Monday to Saturday night so get your friends involved with the hashtag #WeeklyBeatDown. Now pick your favourite song between the competition this week, hit the anonymous vote button when you’re done. Good Luck!!

Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
