Alessia Cara reminds us to enjoy every fleeting moment in life.
The 20-year-old released a time traveling music video for the opening track off her debut album, 2015's Know-It-All. In the clip, Cara is seen throughout different stages of her life, from childhood through adolescence and into the golden years.
At one point in the video, Cara is holding a Grammy. Many were shocked when she did not receive a nomination for Best New Artist earlier this month. She explains "it symbolizes my hopes for long-term success in my career. putting it out into the universe, in other words."
