Alessia Caracciolo leerde op tienjarige leeftijd gitaar spelen en nog geen drie jaar later begon ze haar eigen YouTube-kanaal waar ze filmpjes plaatste van nummers die ze speelde.



Op haar 18e tekent ze een contract bij Def Jam, waar in het voorjaar van 2015 haar debuutsingle Here verschijnt. De track bereikt de achtste plaats in de Billboard Hot 100. Het nummer is een van de vijf tracks op de ep Four Pink Walls dat op 26 augustus verschijnt. Op 13 november 2015 levert ze met Know-It-All haar eerste volwaardige album af, waarvan ook Wild Things afkomstig is.

In december van 2016 wordt Scars To Your Beautiful haar tweede Top 40-hit die uitgroeit tot haar grootste succes in de lijst. Ook maakt ze voor de Disney-animatiefilm Vaiana het nummer How Far I'll Go en levert ze met Stay een bijdrage aan een track van Zedd. In de zomer van 2017 levert ze een vocale bijdrage aan 1-800-273-8255 van Logic.

In 2019 is Alessia Cara te horen op Let Me Down Slowly, een duet met Alec Benjamin.


Songtekst

I guess right now you've got the last laugh

I'm sorry if I
Seem uninterested
Or I'm not listenin'
Or I'm indifferent
Truly I ain't
Got no business here
But since my friends are here
I just came to kick it
But really I would rather be
At home all by myself
Not in this room with people who don't
Even care about my wellbeing
I don't dance, don't ask
I don't need a boyfriend
So you can go back
Please enjoy your party
I'll be here
Somewhere in the corner
Under clouds of marijuana
With this boy who's hollering
I can hardly hear
Over this music I don't listen to
And I don't wanna get with you
So tell my friends that I'll be over here

Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, I ask myself what am I doing here
Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

Excuse me if I seem
A little unimpressed with this
An anti-social pessimist
But usually I don't mess with this
And I know you mean
Only the best
And your intentions aren't to bother me
But honestly I'd rather be
Somewhere with my people
We can kick it and just listen
To some music with the message
Like we usually do and we'll discuss
Our big dreams, how we plan
To take over the planet
So pardon my manners
I hope you'll understand
That I'll be here
Not there in the kitchen
With the girl who's always gossiping
About her friends, so tell them
I'll be here
Right next to the boy
Who's throwin' up, cause he can't take
What's in his cup no more, oh God, why am I here

Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, I ask myself what am I doing here
Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here

Hours later congregating
Next to the refrigerator
Some girl talking 'bout her haters
She ain't got none
How did it ever come to this
I shoulda never come to this
So holla at me, I'll be
In the car when you're done
I'm standoffish
Don't want what you're offering
And I'm done talking
Awfully sad it had to be that way
So tell my people when they're ready
That I'm ready and I'm standing
By the TV with my beanie low
Yo, I'll be over here

Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, I ask myself what am I doing here
Oh oh oh, here
Oh oh oh, here
And I can't wait till we can break up outta here
