So I've been in an Alessia Cara, Ariana Grande and Daya kick lately and decided to give my first reaction to Alessia Cara's album! I know it's been out for a while but oh well...
Seventeen: Remember when I said that Ulta plays songs that I think are from an artist I know but I'm not completely sure? This is one of those songs. It's a great tune that instantly wakes me up. It's not a super upbeat song, but it's enough with the oh's to put me in a great mood.
Here: I've loved this song since it first came out. It's my anthem. I relate to this song so much. Besides the lyrics being on point, I'm just blown away by Alessia's ability to sing that much in a single breath! I struggle to keep up when I sing along!
Outlaws: I think this is actually another song I've heard at work. I like it! It almost has that do wop feel to it!
I'm Yours: Have I heard all these songs at work? It's possible..either that or all her songs sound the same (which I'm not complaining, but they do). I want a slow song...
Four Pink Walls: She sounds more like in Here and the beat reminds me of another song that I can't think of but I like it! it's more chill of a song.
Wild Things: I love this song. It inspired me to review this album to begin with. It's a very chill vibe but also a subtle anthem like Here was.
Stone: Ohhh this is a bit different! Much slower and showcases her voice. I like it!
Overdose: If Here and Seventeen had a baby it would be this song! Slow on the verses and upbeat for the chorus, a mix that is one of my favorites.
Stars: Another slow one. It's a cute love song!
Scars To Your Beautiful: A song of self love. One of those that I probably won't appreciate until I'm feeling down, but a great pick me up!
Here( 2:00 AM version): A stripped down version of Here and it's so beautiful!
River of Tears: A sad song lyrically. But the music is slightly more upbeat. It seems to be a song that speaks of crying it out and starting a new. I like it!
My Song: I looove the message of this song! It's like a "I'm gonna do what I want, don't want to follow the Hollywood norms" kinda song. It's perf!
