There is a new and arising star in the making. Alessia Cara is making the world her own with her new single, “Here.”

Cara, only 18, is making a mark. When her single was first released, it gained 50,00 streams. It gained her recognition.

Her music, in general, is amazing and is gaining her the fame she deserves.

Her music is insightful and it’s fresh from what you usually hear on the radio.

“Here” is a fresh, new sound from the radio, and as I said before her music is fresh. The way her song flows and was produced is outstanding. Cara is an arising star and her music is something you won’t get tired of listening to.

“Here” is by far my favorite song, maybe because I can relate to it. It’s written and produced amazingly. In a way, “Here” is relatable to anyone.

Co-written by Sebastian Kole, “Here” seems to be offer a cautionary message and once again, relatable.

In a way, we all can relate to this song and maybe all her songs in her new album, “Four Pink Walls.”

I bought her album and instantly fell in love with her lyrics and her voice; both are very soothing.

“I’m sorry if I seem uninterested/ 
Or I’m not listenin’, or I’m indifferent,” she sings, as if she doesn’t want to be there. Cara doesn’t want to be surrounded by people who seemingly don’t understand the fact that she wants to be alone.

“Truly I ain’t got no business here / 
But since my friends are here, I just came to kick it.” Clearly, Cara doesn’t have any business there, but her friends are going so she simply tagging along. For the most part, she wanted to have fun but that’s not her type of scene.

She, as an artist and a human being, is an introvert. I have been watching her interviews, and she doesn’t keep up with her songs. Not in a bad way, she simply doesn’t want to see the reviews because she doesn’t want to hate what she has created as an artist.

I know how that feels; every time I write, I don’t know whether at the end I would hate it or love it.

I adore Alessia Cara and her way of speaking throughout her lyrics. In two years, I hope she has earned the fame she deserves.

Her voice is something I would never grow tired of and I genuinely recommend you to listen to her and her album, Four Pink Walls. It’ll blow your mind. I guarantee it.
