Carly Rae Jepsen Bounces Back With Bubblegum Pop Brilliance in ‘I Really Like You’
Don't fight it
UPDATE: Carly Rae Jepsen has performed her new single, “I Really Like You,” on Good Morning America. Watch her shimmy and shake it out below.
Carly Rae Jepsen became immortalized in one-hit wonder carbonite when her ubiquitous “Call Me Maybe” blanketed summer 2013. With her brand-new single, “I Really Like You,” however, Jepsen reclaims her pop frontrunner status. Echoing with ’80s electronic drums (not unlike Phil Collins’ famous DUN-DUN-DU-DUN-DUN-DUNNN fill in “It In The Air Tonight”), “I Really Like You” has everything: sugary synths, rump-shaking rhythms, and a a sincere, fully chantable chorus: “I really, really, really, really like you!” If this isn’t what a good old-fashioned crush sounds like, we don’t know what does. Hear it above.
