  • - Earlier this year, I heard our next guest on the radio

  • and I immediately said, "Bring her to me."

  • Her debut song, "Here," has over 40 millions streams on Spotify.

  • I love her so much.

  • Please welcome 19-year-old Alessia Cara.

  • [Alessia Cara's "Here"]

  • - [singing] I'm sorry if I seem uninterested

  • Oh, I'm not listening, oh, 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 well being

  • 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 want to 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 asked myself

  • What am I doing here?

  • Oh, oh, oh, here

  • Oh, oh, oh, here

  • And I can't wait 'til we can break up out

  • Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this

  • An antisocial pessimist

  • But usually I don't mess with this

  • And I know that 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 a 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 understand that I'll be here

  • Not there in the kitchen

  • With the girl who's always gossiping about her friends

  • Oh, tell them I'll be here

  • Right next to the boy who's throwing 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 asked myself

  • What am I doing here?

  • Oh, oh, oh, here

  • Oh, oh, oh, here

  • And I can't wait 'til we can break up out

  • Hours later congregating

  • Next to the refrigerator

  • Some girl talking 'bout a hater

  • She ain't got none

  • How did it ever come to this?

  • I should've never come to this

  • So holla at me, I'll be in the car when you're done

  • I'm stand-offish

  • 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 asked myself

  • What am I doing here?

  • Oh, oh, oh, here

  • Oh, oh, oh, here

  • And I can't wait 'til we can break up out of here

  • If you're ready, then I'm ready

  • Yeah, yeah

  • If you're ready, then I'm ready

  • Yeah, yeah

  • If you're ready, then I'm ready

  • Yeah, yeah

  • [cheers and applause]

  • Thank you so much.

  • - Thank you, you're the best.

  • - Thank you. - Amazing.

  • Amazing.

  • I mean, right? - Thank you.

  • Thank you so much.

  • - The name of the CD is "Know-It-All."

  • You're going home with a copy, everybody.

  • Amazing.
