HERE> Musically it is an alternative R&B, soul and indie pop song. The main body of the song is a flip of the musicality behind “Hell is around the Corner” by Tricky. The song samples “Ike’s Rap II” by Isaac Hayes from the album Black Moses, which also samples the bassline of Wallace Collection’s “Daydream”. The main repeating melody of the song is sampled from the 1960s TV series The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe.
“Here” is the debut single by Canadian singer Alessia Cara and the lead single for her extended play (EP) Four Pink Walls (2015), and her debut album Know-It-All (2015). The song was released on April 30, 2015. According to the artist, the song is about everyone who secretly hates parties. “Here” slowly gained popularity, and became Cara’s first US Billboard Hot 100 chart entry debuting at number 95 for the week of August 22, 2015, later becoming her first top 5 single on the chart and reached the top of the Billboard Pop Songs chart after a historic 26-week climb. Meanwhile, “Here” has charted in the top 40 in Australia, Canada, Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The official remix features American rapper Logic. The song was featured on the third season of the TV Show Younger.
