In case you don’t know who Alessia Cara is, here’s a quick glimpse.

Alessia Cara is a Canadian singer who was well known for her YouTube covers and recently for her song “Here.” The song didn’t get much promotion or a ‘grand’ release, but regardless, the song has been doing very well. In Canada and the U.S. the track reached the top 20.

Though there was little promotion behind the single, Alessia was invited to perform her song on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. She was also invited to perform on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. In both instances, the hosts of their respected shows discovered the 19 year old singer on the internet before inviting her to perform live, proving once again that the internet is an amazing tool for new artists. The song was released several months back, and is now gaining some major attention.

“Here” is Alessia’s debut single to her album, Know-It-All, which is set to release later this month. Alessia says that the song is about anyone who secretly hates parties and, as the songs states, would rather be at home, or somewhere with their people.

The music video is very compelling. Canadian music video director Aaron A does a great job of encompassing the vibe as well as the style of the song. The video depicts Alessia Cara at a party, and it’s obvious that she doesn’t want to be there. More so, that she is uncomfortable being there. Throughout the whole video, the party is ‘frozen’ still as she walks around the environment. The effect perfectly accomplishes the out-of-world feeling, in other words, the outsider looking in. She eventually leaves the party leaving the party-goers in their frozen stance.

Alessia’s voice and style is very refreshing. She’s certainly talented, and I’m looking forward to seeing what else she has to offer! Check out the video to Here by Alessia Cara, and make sure to keep an eye out for her.
