Alessia Cara is no stranger to amazing cross-genre covers — just see her Taylor Swift-approved take on “Bad Blood” and her gloriously chill rendition of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”
Now, the 19-year-old up-and-comer has leant her R&B sultriness to Nick Jonas’ “Levels,” which she performed during a visit to Sirius XM’s Hits 1. Nick’s original version is mightily groovy on its own, but Alessia kicks it up a notch with her smooth, soulful vocals (she even croons that post-chorus breakdown!) and a stripped-down arrangement featuring just an acoustic guitar and minimal drums.
One person who’s a total fan of this cover? Nick himself, who tweeted his thoughts on Alessia’s “awesome” rendition -- as well as his love for her breakout hit, "Here" -- with a sweet tweet on Tuesday (Oct. 13).
