Grammy Award®-winning singer-songwriter Alessia Cara unwraps a pair of welcome Christmas gifts for the season – official videos for Jingle Bell Rock and “Make It To Christmas,” set for release 14th December.

Alessia’s most recent album, In The Meantime released September 2021, preceded over the summer by “Sweet Dream” and “Shapeshifter” whose video showed off Alessia’s acting chops in the roles of the scorned wife, the cheating husband, a private investigator, the gardener, and maid.

In The Meantime’s centerpiece, “Best Days,” described as a “misty piano ballad” by the New York Times, eventually spun off Best Days (The Remixes) in January 2022.  The 5-track bundle offered the original single version, the acoustic version, the King Henry Remix, the Takis Remix, and “Best Days” (featuring Pentatonix).  A month later came the single + video release of a key album track, “I Miss You Don’t Call Me,” just in time for Valentine’s Day. May brought the video for “You Let Me Down,” another key album track (which also made its broadcast premiere on MTVLive, MTVU, and on the Paramount Times Square billboards).

Alessia Cara uses pop music as a diary. Since catapulting to stardom in 2015, with the quintessential loner anthem “Here,” the singer/songwriter, with over 15 billion worldwide streams, has matured along­side her audience, capturing the highs and lows of adolescence and young adulthood with camera-like clarity. In many ways, Cara’s new era is a snapshot of an artist finally processing her meteoric rise in the music industry. The Best New Artist Grammy winner’s debut single, “Here,” peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went on to sell three million copies. Her platinum-selling debut album, Know-It-All, delivered another smash hit with “Scars to Your Beautiful” and she memorably contributed “How Far I’ll Go” to the Moana soundtrack.
