See Alessia Cara’s Empowering ‘Scars to Your Beautiful’ Video

20-year-old singer inspired by “Beautiful,” by Christina Aguilera and “Unpretty,” by TLC

Alessia Cara debuted a stripped-down video to accompany her latest single “Scars to Your Beautiful.” The track appears on her 2015 debut album Know-It-All.

Cara’s self-love anthem features cancer survivors, transgender people and others discussing their insecurities and flaws in between the verses. Singer JoJo guests on the track, also offering a personal testimonial about her own journey of self-acceptance.

“A couple of female artists have done it in the past, and I wanted to put my own spin on it because I feel like you can never have too many reminders and too many songs talking about those things,” Cara told Cosmopolitan about creating a self-love and body positive song like “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera or “Unpretty” by TLC. “It was important to put that in my own words and remind people that they are beautiful no matter what.”

Currently, the 20-year-old singer-songwriter is on tour with Coldplay. She will embark on the second half of her Know-It-All tour.
