Newcomer Alessia Cara covers Drake's recent track "Hotline Bling" live.

Back in April, we introduced you to Canadian singer Alessia (now going by "Alessia Cara") via her great, Isaac Hayes-sampling track "Here." Since then, the Bramton, Ontario native has scored a huge deal with Def Jam and met her nation's biggest star Drake, and now she return to cover his latest, greatest track. Above, watch her do "Hotline Bling"-- not "Back To Back," unfortunately-- live while accompanied by a guitarist and drummer who creatively uses a suitcase in lieu of drums or a drum machine.

Befitting her vocals, which are much stronger than Drizzy's, she gives the song a few more melodic bells and whistles than before. Let us know what you think.
