This unapologetic anthem is about all the uncool kids and misfits who are on the outside looking in, including Alessia Cara, herself.
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest during an acoustic performance on his radio show in July 2015, Cara introduced the track by explaining, "This song is called 'Wild Things' and it's about self-acceptance and kind of saying I don't need to be this great, amazing person or this smart person or this popular person to still feel cool about myself. And for all the people who don't really feel like they have a place, we can make our own place."
Alessia Cara gives us her definition of wildness in the introduction to the Aaron A-directed video, "To me, Where The Wild Things Are is a place that exists in our minds," she says. "It's a place of liberty and shamelessness. It can take a split second or a lifetime to find it, but once you do, you'll be free."
The clip then follows the singer and her friends hanging out, playing music, taking Polaroids, lighting fireworks at the beach and staying up all night.
