Carly Rae Jepsen, the Canadian singer best known for her 2012 viral hit single ‘Call Me Maybe,’ has released a new single. Some say ‘I Really Like You’ is destined to reach the top of the music charts, too.
“I told her that she couldn’t come out with anything unless it was on the level of ‘Call Me Maybe,’” her manager, Scooter Braun, said during an interview with Billboard in January. “And, now we have a new one that is on that level.”
The lyrics are a bit young for Carly Rae Jepsen at 29, but most of her fans lose sight of the fact that she’s not a teenager. She sings of the angst of first love, and shares the emotions of young girls waiting for that phone call or text that never comes–or takes it’s sweet time coming.
The fans who are excited about the release of this single are no doubt excitedly anticipating the release of the whole album. Carly Rae Jepsen has collaborated with some music masterminds in the making of her upcoming third studio album, too. In addition to dancing with Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber for the ‘I Really Like You’ music video and title song from the album, she met in the recording studio with Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes and Jack Antonoff, the lead guitarist for Fun.
