Cara has been in the music industry since 2014 when she signed with EP Entertainment and Def Jam Recordings. And the following year she released her debut single, Here, which Rolling Stone ranked as #21 on its 50 best songs of 2015 list. On November 13, 2015, her first album, Know-It-All, was released.
Her debut album ranked on the Top Billboard 200 Albums in both 2016 and 2017. In April 2017, she was featured on the song 1-800-273-8255 from Logic’s album that also featured Khalid. Since then, her career has expanded dramatically.
At the 60th Annual Grammy awards, Cara was nominated for four awards: Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Music Video. On January 28, 2018, she made history by being the first Canadian artist to win a Grammy for Best New Artist.
In June 2018, Cara released her single, Growing Pains, which teased her upcoming music project that her fans were excited to hear about. And to their surprise, she announced on Twitter that her second album was to be released on November 30 and has 15 new songs.
