A quarter million views in 2 days is a stirring feat for a music video from a 20-year-old R&B singer from Brampton, Ontario. But it was always in the bag considering that the Italian Canadian singer is global sensation Alessia Cara. This has been a big year for her after releasing debut album Know-It-All in November 2015. Three top 20 hits followed: “Here” and “Wild Things”, both triple platinum, and the more recent “Scars to Your Beautiful”, platinum. She won a JUNO, MMVA, Billboard, and SOCAN award and nominations from MTV, the People’s Choice Awards, the BBC Music Awards, and the American Music Awards. Moreover, she was asked to sing the song “How Far I’ll Go” from the Disney film Moana. Alessia has released her latest music video for opening track “Seventeen” off her album. It shows her growing up while riding a trolley through the streets of Toronto on uncomfortable hard plastic seats.
Cara says of the MV, “It’s a personal song and video for me (starring my family and friends, as usual) and I’m excited it’s finally out for u guys to see. Hope it’ll remind u to enjoy all the little moments in life, especially this time of year. Thank u for making mine that much more special. Happy holidays & enjoy the video.”
