Alessia Cara’s ‘Here’ Reaches No. 1 on Billboard Hot R&B Songs Chart
Alessia Cara made some major waves this year with her breakout single, “Here.” The singer’s introductory single has reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart.
"Here" has slowly became one of the hottest songs in the country and is turning Cara into one of the more promising newcomers to emerge in 2015. Prior to landing the top spot on the Hot R&B Songs chart, "Here" topped the Twitter Emerging Artist chart, as well as the R&B Digital Songs and Rhythmic Songs charts, respectively, which serves as evidence of the song's organic buzz and popularity.
"Here" has proved not to only be able to gain traction in the world of R&B, but is also a favorite on the mainstream, as it continues to climb the Billboard Hot 100 tally, peaking at No. 7 on the chart this week. The success of the song is a big win for the genre, which has endured a lackluster year, which has been devoid of many smash hits in 2015.
But the Canadian singer, whose debut album, Know-It-All, is in stores now, has begun to change that tide while building a strong foundation for what is looking to be a stellar career.
