Who Did Alessia Cara Write 'Trust My Lonely' About?

Alessia Cara recently gave the world her new single "Trust My Lonely," which has lyrics that bounce between being hurt by a former partner and finding the strength to move on.

At a recent event promoting the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour she talked to Billboard about what inspired it, she says:

"When I initially wrote that song, I wrote it because of my insecurities. I think a lot of people, we become comfortable in our misery or comfortable in a relationship that may be bad for us. This song was just a reminder for me and for everyone to just trust yourself and let go of things don't serve you in a positive way, especially your heart and your soul."

"Trust My Lonely" is out now.
