Think Robyn “Dancing On My Own” but with Carly Rae Jepsen’s signature pop touch. The result is a dance anthem about independence, and to be honest, borderline masturbation depending on how you interpret the lyrics. Just check out the chorus below.
“Party for one (Hey) / If you don’t care about me, I’ll just dance for myself / Back on my beat
I’ll be the one / If you don’t care about me / (You don’t care that I’m) / Making love to myself,” the 32-year-old Canadian chanteuse declares.
“Party For One” is a fantastic offering from Carly Rae. Will it become a hit? Sadly, I think it’ll go unnoticed by mainstream radio. One day hopefully, Jepsen Justice will be served. At least, she’ll always have the gays. We’re loyal AF as long as the bops keep coming.
“To me ‘Party For One’ is an anthem of what it is to celebrate time with yourself, which is a hard thing for people to really enjoy sometimes, and it’s something I’m learning to do more and more. This song represents a lot of what this album is about for me which is romantic love but self-love too.” – Carly Rae Jepsen
The video for Party For One was shot in New York City and directed by Bardia Zeinali. In true Carly Rae fashion, it’s quirky and fun. Love that CRJ superfan Mark Kanemura is in it. If you follow the former Gaga dancer on social media, he’s always posting clips using Jepsen’s songs.
