Alessia Cara, "Dead Man"
The Def Jam artist-songwriter brings a noirish, jazzy vibe to this track, her first new music since 2022. Cara co-penned the cut with producer Mike Elizondo. "The song is about a relationship that has come to an end," Cara explains. "Basically, looking at the other person and metaphorically shaking them and saying, ‘I am really trying my best to hold here, but... I feel like I am talking to a dead man.'” The exceptionally cinematic clip was helmed by George Gallardo Kattah.
