New artist watch time for Alessia Cara. Canadian singer/songwriter signed to Def Jam. Debut album is apparently coming this year, and if the debut single 'Here' is anything to go by, it should be rather lovely. Been listening to 'Here' a good bit recently. Really is the introvert's party anthem isn't it? Lovely lyrically and melodically.

This is brilliant, it was sent to the last BJSC and I had it down as a wining contender but it came 30th in the semi so didn't qualify drama.gif She's such a talent and the melody of this song is so captivating, and it's so relatable I agree, with the story the lyrics tell!

This is gaining some traction in Canada, and because of that, I gave it another chance and now I'm OBSESSED. Sorry Math sob.gif

01 Seventeen
02 Here
03 Outlaws
04 I'm Yours
05 Four Pink Walls

So this EP is now out and has been getting wonderful reviews all round. It is slightly more pop than the debut 'Here' would suggest, but seeing as 'Here' is the only song to also appear on her debut album, I think that could be more of the direction she will be taking in the future outside of this small prelude EP. She is meant to be releasing the debut album before year end too.

Video's for all the songs are out but 'I'm Yours' and 'Seventeen' are my highlights (despite all 5 songs being brilliant) wub.gif

So happy she is in the BBC Sound of 2016 shortlist.

This album is the kind of album that keeps giving me a new fav every week. My love for 'Scars to Your Beautiful' right now is unreal wub.gif

Thrilled for Alessia managing #2 on BBC Sound of 2016. An absolutely fantastic placing for her.

With 'Here' rising nicely on Spotify and being C-Listed by Radio 1 this week, hopefully it can become a big hit dance.gif

I do enjoy 'Wild Things' but I think the song that would keep up momentum, if 'Here' does become a hit, is 'Scars To Your Beautiful'.

Wasn't instantly my favourite but has become by far and away the best song on the album for me now and I think it could have hit potential if pushed. Those lyrics cry.gif

I heard 'Scars To Your Beautiful', wow. It really shows me what potential she has as an artist.

I quite like 'Here', it makes a good use of the 'Glory Box' sample (which is just as well, as it's one of my all-time favourite songs), but it sounds like she's whinging in it and that puts me off liking it completely.

Listened to the album in full and it's pretty decent.

'Overdose' is the biggest standout to me.

Finally got round to listening to the full album after seeing her last week and I can't believe how underrated this album is, the album is much more stronger than I had anticipated, the stand outs are 'I'm Yours', 'Overdose' and 'Wild Things.

NEW SINGLE UP IN THE BIAAAATTTCCHHHH



Really hope it doesn't collide with Troye's chances at getting a hit with "Wild" but I can see this getting 90% of the longevity "Wild Things" had.

The thing that annoyed me about the video is the first word or two of each verse has been cut off.

Scars To Your Beautiful seems to be doing well in the USA, It's #124 on iTunes, #34 on Spotify and climbing up on radio, it's looking likely she will get another top #50 Billboard hit, it's just a shame that 'Wild Things' never got the top 10 peak it deserved worldwide. I'm Yours final single please and for her to be massive plz.
