The 33-year-old underrated singer released not one, but two, sensational tracks. “Now That I Found You,” produced by Captain Cuts is an infectious exhilarating electro-kissed dance anthem. It lives up to all my expectations after first hearing a snippet featured in the Queer Eye Season 3 promo.
Meanwhile, “No Drug Like Me,” produced by John Hill & Jordan Palmer slows it down a bit. The 80s retro-tinged bop starts off shimmery slow before building to a mid-tempo euphoria. I’m obsessed with both.
“Now That I Found You” is about the high you get when a new love starts to change your life. It’s like the rush, rush, rush is better than any drug. Which leads me to “No Drug Like Me” which is 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 – – “If you make me feel in love then I’ll blossom for you.”
After the release of “Party Of One” and these two bops, Jepsen’s forthcoming album is shaping up to be a winner. Here’s hoping mainstream radio finally gives her long overdue love. Check them both out below.
