Canadian singer Alessia Cara is bubbling up on the strength of her coolly confident ode to the wallflower life, “Here,” but she’s about to get a whole new level of notoriety thanks to Taylor Swift co-signing her live “Bad Blood” cover.

The 18-year-old singer took on Swift’s single for BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions. Armed with an acoustic guitar and accompanied by a piano and some finger-snaps, she deftly handled Kendrick Lamar‘s rhymes as well as the chorus. The cover was so impressive that Taylor herself tweeted about it last night (July 8), and a starstruck Cara offered up an apt response.

Cara also performed a stripped-down version of “Here.” Watch that up top, and catch the “Bad Blood” cover below.
