This past Friday, Alessia Cara revealed that her new single would be arriving on Friday, June 15.

Monday, the Grammy winner for Best New Artist confirmed the title of that single: “Growing Pains.”

In addition to making its bow on digital platforms, “Growing Pains” will be delivered to pop radio for immediate airplay. It will officially “impact” in conjunction with the June 19 pop radio add board.

Cara already has four pop radio number ones to her credit: her own “Here” and “Scars To Your Beautiful,” her Zedd collaboration “Stay” and her Logic and Khalid collaboration “1-800-273-8255.”
