Bigg Ceaser – Letter To My Son
New York, NY – Canadian rising star Alessia Cara performed last Wednesday on Night 2 the fifth anniversary of the award-winning music series, #uncapped.
The annual event spans five consecutive nights in New York City, and featured performances from a collection of #uncapped alumni including Matt and Kim and JoJo, along with talent new to the #uncapped stage including Alessia, Chance the Rapper, Willow Smith, Kehlani and many more.
She belted tracks including “Seventeen” before introducing “Scar” with a powerful message.
“This next song is about body image—there’s so much pressure to look like girls in magazines,” she said as a means of introduction to the popular feminist anthem about appreciating one’s self.
After a couple of enjoyable covers including The Neighborhood’s “Sweater Weather,” for which she strapped on an acoustic guitar, and James Brown’s “I Feel Good,” Alessia closed her set with her debut hit single, “Here.”

The track itself is a leftover biproduct of the RETOX sessions. And it also comes to us with a confirmed release date for RETOX. The DP EP we’ve all been waiting on is FINALLY scheduled to drop on Oct. 30 via SmashMouth Music Group.
Brampton, ON – Brampton artist Anderson recently dropped his video for “Keep It To Myself” (produced by Soundoftj) off the recently released Young Wise & Gifted project.
Anderson uses this song to tell us about his dreams of success while simultaneously preaching the lone wolf mentality. You know what that is, right? It’s when you don’t trust anyone – you’re not out to make new friends and you don’t even trust those in your innermost circle. The video was directed by Jay Wills. Check it out after the jump.
