Because she just got totally inside our heads with her on-its-way-being-a-hit song “Here.” She NAILS it when it comes to describing that awkward, uncomfortable feeling you get when you’re stuck in a situation that just isn’t for you.

Alessia recently spoke about her inspiration for the song. “I went to this party about two years ago, when I was 16. I hated it because I felt really uncomfortable and really shy for some reason. Everyone else seemed like they were having fun except for me and it made me reflect a little bit,” she told Refinery29. “I went to the studio the next day because I had a session with Sebastian Cole and a brother-producer duo from Toronto, Sammy and Bobby Gerongco. I got into the studio with them and they asked what’s going on in my life and what do you want to sing about or what do you want to write about? That party just kept popping up in my head and I told them about it and they said let’s just write about that.”
