Alessica Cara performs on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Feb. 11, 2019.

Alessia Cara took to Stage 56 at Monday night’s (Feb. 11) The Late Late Show to perform her heartfelt ballad “Out of Love,” from her 2018 album The Pains of Growing.

Wearing a gray, shoulder padded pantsuit (what she has said “symbolizes the idea of growing up”) and a playful space buns hairdo, the Canadian-born singer-songwriter performed on a moodily lit, blue-toned stage accompanied by her band and a cello player. “There's not a thing I could say, not a song I could sing for your mind to change/ Nothing can fill up the space, won't ask you to stay/ But let me ask you one thing/ Oh, when did you fall out of love, out of love?,” Cara huskily sang.

The 22-year-old artist penned the melancholic song about heartbreak, but not from personal experience, rather a friend’s breakup, according to a recent interview with the Associated Press. “He was like, ‘Listen, I’m not a songwriter, I’m not good at writing. Could you maybe one day ... write a song about somebody falling out of love with you?’” she explained, adding that it was the first song she wrote about someone else’s perspective -- and that her friend even got back together with the person who fell out of love with him.
