Just in case you weren't convinced of Alessia Cara's potential for star power yet, the 18-year old Canadian Def Jam signee just showed off some more of her chops with a cover of Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood." Cara performed the cover, which even includes a reworking of Kendrick Lamar's verse, for BBC Radio 1. The in-studio performance is sparse with just a simple piano accompaniment holding up Alessia's acoustic guitar and singing and an occasional breakdown comes in the form of finger-snapping. 

The best part? Taylor showed Alessia major props on Twitter. And now you officially can't afford to sleep on Ms. Cara any longer. 

Check out the Tweets below and watch Alessia's first video here to get a better sense of where she's headed. 

@taylorswift13 HOLD ON. WAIT. WAIT. I'm just gonna go to sleep and reawaken to make sure this is real life hold ON
