Life comes at ya fast, and nothing captures that more than Alessia Cara’s new “Seventeen” video.
The Know-It-All singer ages before our eyes in the clever visual, which begins with her as a young girl and follows her transformation to a preteen, a young woman, a middle-aged mother, and an older woman. At one point, she’s all glammed up and holding a Grammy (pretty ironic, considering she was just snubbed for Best New Artist). “It symbolizes my hopes for long-term success in my career,” the 20-year-old wrote on Twitter. “Putting it out into the universe, in other words.”
Here’s hoping Cara gets her dream — clearly, she’s well on her way.
On Vevo, Cara paired the new video with a sweet message to her fans, writing, “It’s a personal song and video for me (starring my family and friends, as usual) and I’m excited it’s finally out for u guys to see. Hope it’ll remind u to enjoy all the little moments in life, especially this time of year. Thank u for making mine that much more special. Happy holidays & enjoy the video.”
