Alessia Cara released the official music video for her third single “Scars To Your Beautiful” from her debut album Know-It-All.  The Canadian R&B singer shared the video with fans as a gift on Monday (July 11), her 20th birthday.

The video for the self-love track features various shots of different kinds of people opening up about their insecurities and how they learned to recognize their individual beauty. R&B/Pop singer JoJo also makes a cameo.

“I wanted all kinds of people — young, old, whatever their situation, whether it's visible scars, non-visible scars — just a bunch of different women, and there are some men in there as well because it can reach out to guys too,” said Cara in an interview with Cosmopolitan.

?The single is reminiscent of past empowering singles like Christina Aguilera’s 2003 hit “Beautiful”.

“A couple of female artists have done it in the past, and I wanted to put my own spin on it because I feel like you can never have too many reminders and too many songs talking about those things,” said Cara.

The video captures Cara’s main message in “Scars To Your Beautiful,” which is that beauty comes in all shapes and forms. Watch below:
