As part of our coverage of the 2019 Juno Awards, we're inviting some of today's hottest Canadian acts to cover a past winner in the single of the year category.

In today's session, Montreal singer-songwriter Charlotte Cardin has chosen to cover a song that she says has been "judged over the years": Nickelback's 2002 single of the year winner, "How You Remind Me."

Like much of Nickelback's discography, "How You Remind Me" can be polarizing to many, but Cardin argues that "if you stop and just listen to the melody and the lyrics, it's a super, super catchy song."  

"I just wanted to do a different version," she continued. "'Cause I really genuinely love the song." 

To honour the song, Cardin took a "straightforward, simple" approach to the cover. She adds, "We didn't want to overdo it ... just the three of us and do it in our style, but keeping it recognizable." For this performance, she is joined by her drummer Benjamin Courcy and bassist, Mathieu Sénéchal.
