Alessia Cara Just Dropped Our Fave New Song Of The Week


Wed, August, 26 by


Taylor Swift gave us the perfect 22-year-old anthem, Hilary Duff celebrated Sweet Sixteens everywhere and now, Alessia Cara is here to provide the perfect soundtrack for being 17.

Today, Cara has released a new single from her upcoming Four Pink Walls EP called Seventeen. (Update: You can stream all the songs off of her EP on her YouTube channel now!) The energetic track is pure fun, boasting a bouncy beat that recalls the best of Lorde’s Pure Heroine and a melody that’s just as catchy as anything Swift has ever written. Cara, who is now 19, sings about growing up, wanting to be 17 years old and freezing the moment when you become 17.

The video was shot and edited by Cara herself (in the YouTube description, she credits her mom for catering though). Cara dances around a hotel room, being her silly amazing self while singing to the camera. Ugh, this girl just continues to SLAY. We love you, Alessia!
