Here by Alessia Cara
The artist: Cara is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter from Ontario, Canada.
Luckily for us, the wise-beyond-her-years artist took a gap year between high school and university to focus on her music and was snapped up by a DefJam executive who signed her after discovering her YouTube channel.
The vibe: An unapologetic anthem for wallflowers, outcasts and shy people that’s both soulful and vulnerable. Here tells the tale of an actual party Cara attended.
Listen to it when: You don’t want to apologise for staying home on a Saturday night.
Sounds like: Amy Winehouse, Lorde
