Alessia Cara Sings ‘Trust My Lonely’ in New Music Video

Alessia Cara wears a men’s suit, which is a feminist statement, in the music video for “Trust My Lonely” from her upcoming sophomore album.

In the new music video for “Trust My Lonely” by Alessia Cara she wears a men’s suit, but she still has makeup on so it’s okay. The single is from her sophomore album The Pains of Growing that was supposed to drop last month. At least that is what she told Harper’s Bazaar in June.

Don’t you know that you’re bad for me?/ I gotta trust my lonely…” in the bridge. She has a very mature attitude for a 22 year old, and doesn’t need a man to be happy and successful.

This is the second single from The Pains of Growing LP, the first one being “Growing Pains” from last June. Cara has been working on it since before she won her first Grammy last year.

“This time around, I am definitely aware that I have an audience now and I have people that I have to really connect to, and there are people that are waiting to connect to me,” Cara talks about working on the album. I’m always mindful of what I put out, because I don’t want anything to seem like it’s just me complaining about my life. I want them to really relate to it. Because my circumstance and my career is very unusual, it’s seemingly difficult for people to relate. But I think there are so many common feelings, even in uncommon situations. People are always bound to relate if I’m honest enough,” she continues.
