Alessia Cara Shows Why She’s “Here” to Stay

18-year-old newcomer Alessia Caracciolo (Cara) unwraps the real-to-life music video for her new single, "Here," a soulful and bittersweet record about straying from the norm. The powerful clip draw on the lyrics of the record, highlighting the pressures faced by today's Generation Z (Gen-Z). Alessia plays the outcast at a party, showing viewers why she would rather kick it somewhere else.

"Here" is a song "for all the antisocial, awkward, and miserable party-goers of the world," Alessia told The FADER. "This one time I went to a party and while there, I realized how much I hated it, along with every other party I had ever gone to. We wrote about it the next day."

Alessia is a talented singer-songwriter from Brampton, Ontario signed to Def Jam. "Here," produced by Pop and Oak and Sebastian Kole, is from her upcoming project.

Alessia Cara is the truth!
