"Scars to Your Beautiful" is a song by Canadian singer and songwriter Alessia Cara for her debut studio album, Know-It-All (2015). It will be released to Top 40 radio on July 26, 2016, as the third single from the album. The song was written by Cara, Warren Felder, Coleridge Tillman, and Andrew Wansel, with the production being handled by Felder, Tillman, and Wansel.
In an interview with Idolator's Mike Wass, Cara stated about the song, "Basically, that song is about body image. It's directed at women, but I think men can relate to it as well. It's just a song about these things that certain women go through on a daily basis in order to feel loved or in order to love themselves. I think that's such a thing that goes on in today's world. These weird things are instilled in us. You know? That tell us that we’re not good enough or that there's only one kind of beauty. This song basically is contradicting that idea. It's saying, 'Well, if the world doesn't like how you look then they should change. They should change their perspective. You don’t have to change yourself.' I mean, I thought that that was important, you know, just to put out next. Especially because I think that's kind of the direction we're going in, you know, with 'Here'. 'Here' was about not belonging anywhere and 'Wild Things' was about finding a space you belong. Now 'Scars To Your Beautiful' is basically about embracing yourself and finally coming to that conclusion where you feel love and you can love yourself. I think it's cool to put out third because I feel like I have a bigger platform now. The point of the song is to reach as many women, or people, as possible."
