Prism Prize Video: Charlotte Cardin - Drive

The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one from a Quebec artist who has quickly become a star in the province.

Charlotte Cardin - Drive

Charlotte Cardin is a soulful pop singer from Montreal. In 2013 she auditioned for the singing competition La Voix, making it all the way to the top 4. However, it wasn’t until 2016 when she released her debut album Big Boy which helped launch her career. And only a year later she released her sophomore album, Main Girl, another hit.

The video for Drive is shot in a continuous take while Cardin walks down what appears to be a highway bridge. Her voice is full of soul as she sings her way across the road. The song is captivating,m from the guitar that is left to drift in a void to her vocals that carry through Cardin’s vacant surroundings.
