Canadian singer Alessia Cara has quickly been ascending the blogosphere since April when her Isaac Hayes-sampling anthem "Here" arrived, garnering over two million views on YouTube and even being named Complex's second best song of the year (so far). Most recently, the 19-year old stopped over in Australia where she dropped by Sydney's TV Station Channel V to debut her cover of her hometown 6 God and friend Drake.

Unsurprisingly, she delivers a beautiful acoustic cover carefully crafted into a soulful song all her own as her vocals drive over the laid-back acoustic backing that includes her drummer playing on a suitcase. Watch the whole thing along with a bonus acoustic version of her breakout single "Here" below. And get to know the soulful voice behind this year's anti-social pop anthem in our recent interview
