Brampton, Ontario singer Alessia Cara will soon drop her debut EP Four Pink Walls on August 28, and to prepare for that, the R&B songstress stopped by Sydney’s Channel V to perform a live acoustic rendition of Drake‘s “Hotline Bling.” Backed by a percussionist and a guitarist, Alessia delivers a soulful rendition of Drake’s OVO Sound Radio-debuted track. Watch her rendition above and let us know which version you preferred, this or the original. The cover immediately follows a meeting between Drake and Cara at last weekend’s Squamish Valley Music Festival. A photo of the occasion can be viewed below.
