Alessia Cara Covers Drake's "Hotline Bling"

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.
