Alessia Cara shared a new music video for the opening track, “Seventeen,” off of her 2015 debut album. The video brings the song’s theme—the fast pace of growing up—to life and shows Alessia transitioning into different stages of adulthood while on a bus. One moment stands out as Alessia, elegantly dressed, holds onto a Grammy. She explains the scene in a way that exposes her ambitions and declares the permanence of her music career.
She went on to give more details and thoughts on the video in a description posted by Vevo. “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,” she writes. “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.”
