I’ve been obsessing over Alessia Cara since her EP Four Pink Walls came out late last year, and her debut album definitely did not disappoint. One of her biggest supporters has been Taylor Swift, who brought her out as one of her special guests while on the 1989 World Tour, which is where she probably met fellow Canadian artist and Taylor Swift prodigy Shawn Mendes.
Shawn is now in the UK doing promo and talking about his very own World Tour coming soon, while on BBC’s Radio 1 he, like many other artists, performed a couple of his own songs and then, as usual, wowed with a cover of one of his favorites- Here. He had nothing but niceties to share with the listening audience, raving about Cara’s ‘swag’ style and talent before taking on one of her songs, charmingly slipping in a “I’m so out of breath” in the middle.
Check out the awesome cover of Here from BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.
