Alessia shares a video for her track "Here."
Judging by your response to Alessia's HNHH debut, her recent track "Here" is pretty fire. Today, a video arrives.
Billed as "Alessia Cara" in the video's title, the 18-year-old Canadian is the only one moving at normal speed in the new video. Moving among slo-mo'd partygoers, she's in a world of her own, which perfectly matches her lyrics about pulling her beanie low and chilling by herself in social situations.
The song itself is based around a sample of Isaac Hayes' "Ike's Rap II" (which has also fueled great tracks by Portishead and Tricky), and on top of that fairly simple template, Alessia makes "Here" her own with precociously powerful vocals and a clear mastery of melody and songwriting. Keep your eye on her.
