Carly Rae Jepsen Debuts Two New Singles Ahead of New Album
What a day for reveals! At noon today, Carly Rae Jepsen very casually dropped two new singles on the world, and it's the bubblegum pop music that we all so desperately need right now. In anticipation of her fourth studio album, Jepsen announced the release of "Now That I Found You" and "No Drug Like Me" on Twitter, and the results are exactly what you can expect from Jepsengood, unadulterated pop music.
Carly Rae Jepsen, the sparkliest and dreamiest of all hitmakers, is back with two new additions to her collection of hyperbolically emotive pop. Last we heard from her, she was "partying on her own" putting a characteristically optimistic spin on millennial's pop's sexless anxiety but now she's fallen back in love. Thank god!
"Now That I've Found You's" EDM-lite synths are so energetic and sparkly, the song will leave your shoulders dusted with glitter. And when she calls out on the chorus,"Don't give it up! Don't say it hurts!/ Cause there's nothing like this feeling baby/ Now that I've found out," a hibernating teenager will crawl out of recesses of your black heart, do a "High School Musical" and ask their crush to prom. CRJ expertly captures that miracle moment of love, when you're first rolling on the drug of togetherness.
The singles stay along the same lines of Jepsen's previously released work, with "Now That I Found You" finding Jepsen flexing her upbeat synth pop muscles harder than ever. The refrain heavy chorus is the trademark of Jepsen's signature flavor of banger. The more subdue "No Drug Like Me" tells the story of blossoming love. In short, if you want a break from all the heaviness in the world, Jepsen has your back.
"No Drug Like Me" brings out Jepsen's more sultry side, incorporating R&B influences and a thumping bass line. She says that the song reveals "a promise I made to love in general. That when the good stuff lands my way I'll always try to be vulnerable and brave and show all of myself."
Jepsen confirmed that she'll release a new, long-anticipated project in 2019. For now, these two new songs make the perfect pair, and I've been satiated after years of waiting for new music from my Canadian queen Carly Rae. Plus, what more could the gays want than a collaboration between CRJ and the Fab Five?
