Aug 19 Watch: Alessia Cara covers Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’

For the sake of everything great and beautiful and lovely, we hope Alessia Cara is on your radar. Sometimes, when there is so much hype surrounding an artist, it is easy to be like “don’t believe the hype.” With Alessia, BELIEVE THE HYPE, BELIEVE EVERY LAST BIT OF IT. While on a promo tour in Australia, Cara stopped by Channel [V] to perform her hit single, “Here” and Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” In the midst of the drama between Drake and Meek Mill, many people missed Drake’s “Hotline Bling” which was released around the same time. Somehow, Cara has managed to...more

Jul 08 Watch: Alessia Cara covers Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”

On May 17, 2015, Taylor Swift pretty much broke the internet after she debuted the highly-anticipated music video for her Kendrick Lamar-assisted single, “Bad Blood.” This week, BBC Radio 1 shared a video of our current ‘Artist Of The Week,’ Alessia Cara, covering Swift’s hit record, “Bad Blood.” Like everything else Cara does, her rendition of the song is pretty darn flawless.

Jul 03 Featured: Alessia Cara

In honour of Canada day, which took place July 1st, meet my ‘Artist Of The Week,’ Alessia Cara, a Brampton Ontario-native. The bred of Italian-Canadian parents, Cara spent her high school days recording covers of songs by some of her favorite artists, the late Amy Winehouse being her absolute “fave artist ever.” Like everyone else, we first heard of Def Jam signee Alessia Cara earlier this year, when the 18-year-old unveiled her debut single Here, via The Fader. Released with little to no knowledge of who she was, it quickly became a ‘viral smash,’ as The Fader notes. Here, as...more

May 26 VIDEO: Alessia Cara – “Here”

I’m in love with the concept of this video. How hilarious. You’ve probably heard Alessia Cara’s massive debut single, “Here.” It premiered on FADER a little while ago and has since become a “viral smash.” “Here” was written a day after Cara attended a party she hated, “along with every other party [she] had ever gone to.” If you’re anti-social like some of the rest of us, you probably can relate — hence, why the song has become such a hit. Here’s what hilarious. The Aaron A-directed music video for “Here” sees Alessia recreating that party she hated very much....more
