Poor Carly Rae Jepsen. She’ll most likely forever be overlooked due to the enormous success of “Call Me Maybe.” No matter what she does, the Canadian singer will be associated with bubblegum pop, despite experimenting with new sounds.

Warm Blood” is a departure from her usual pop fare. She shines on this new track as she coos over a simmering electro baseline. It’s another highlight off her forthcoming E-MO-TION LP.

Check out another winner from the highly-underrated Carly Rae below. I love it.

If this doesn’t bring Carly Rae Jepsen back to the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10, nothing will. This Shellback-produced track is beyond infectious. Personally, “Run Away With Me” should’ve been the lead cut off her E-MO-TION album. The problem with the underperforming “I Really Like You” was it was trying to hard to replicate “Call Me Maybe.” Nothing will ever come close to that pop gem.

While a big budget music video would’ve been nice for “Run Away With Me,” the home-video inspired vibe is adorable. The 29-year-old singer shares her playful adventures while visiting Paris, New York and Tokyo. Jepsen definitely has the ‘cute’ market cornered. She looks euphoric and without a care in the world in the clip. Maybe it’s because Tom Hanks is nowhere to be found in this one ;) Check it out below.

Run Away With Carly Rae Jepsen On Awesome New Track

In: Donovan, Music

After her critically well-received single “I Really Like You” underperformed, I thought the Canadian chanteuse was dunzo. It appears Carly Rae Jepsen has a little more fight left in her. Her latest track off her forthcoming album E-MO-TION is legitimately sensational.

Run Away With Me” is pure pop perfection. From the sax intro to the shimmery pop production, the 80s-tinged throwback is undeniably catchy. Why the Shellback-produced single is being released in Japan this week and not til August 21 in North America is insane. A video treatment needs to happen ASAP. Give it a listen below.

If “I Really Like You” couldn’t catapult Carly Rae Jepsen back into the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10, nothing will. That catchy track received a huge promotional push and all it managed to do was peak at No. 39. I feel the Canadian singer will forever remain in the dreaded ‘one-hit wonder‘ category.

With all that being said, I’m glad she’s still forging ahead. She just released a new iTunes countdown single to promote the release of her new album, Emotion. It just happens to be the title track.

Emotion” is an 80s-tinged mid-tempo track that finds Jepsen, singing about that elusive boy once again. Girl is always horned up ;) Give her latest a listen below. I actually quite like it.

Maybe it’s because I’m a child of a certain decade, but I adore disco. Even when it wasn’t en vogue, I loved anything from the 70s. Naturally, this neo-disco movement that’s emerged in the past few years is right up my alley.

NYC duo The Knocks transform Carly Rae Jepsen’s 80s-tinged ballad into a slinky disco masterpiece. I can’t get enough.

The Knocks are slaying it these days. Their current hit “Classic” featuring Powers is a favorite, along with their recently-released collaboration with Alex Newell “Collect My Love.” I’m obsessed with these guys. Give their latest a spin below.

The fact “I Really Like You” isn’t a Top 10 hit yet is very surprising. The infectious pop track has an insanely catchy hook and feel-good vibe much like Carly Rae Jepsen’s breakout hit “Call Me Maybe.” To boot, it’s been very well received critically. Not afraid to admit that it’s my guilty pop pleasure currently.

Thanks to a viral lip dub featuring Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Lance Bass and a slew of other celebrities, the track cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 this week. With a brand new remix bundle available on May 5, it’s bound to make some damage at the clubs and on Billboard’s dance chart as well. Check out this wicked poppy dance remix below crafted by Liam Keegan.

I Really Like You” was supposed to be Carly Rae Jepsen’s huge comeback. From the onset, critics praised it for its infectious beat and catchy chorus. For some reason though, it just hasn’t connected with the general public. It hasn’t even cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40. It’s truly shocking how underwhelming the song’s performance is.

Jepsen and her manager Scooter Braun are desperate to save whatever life “I Really Like You” has left. The thirst is real folks.

Braun convinced Justin Beiber to enlist a bunch of famous friends to film a lip dub clip for the track. Watch Ariana Grande, Lance Bass, David Foster, K-pop star CL, Empire‘s Bryshere Gray, Kendall Jenner and many more below be unofficial ambassadors for Carly Rae.

Carly Rae Jepsen Debuts New Ballad ‘All That’

In: Donovan, Music

Carly Rae Jepsen made her Saturday Night Live debut this past weekend. The 29-year-old Canadian singer performed “I Really Like You” and a brand new song which will also appear on her upcoming third studio album. Surprisingly, Carly Rae slows things down for “All That.”

The ballad reminds me something from the 1980s, specifically from Prince’s catalog. She performed the slow jam with surprise guests- Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes and Grammy-winning producer Ariel Rechtshaid. Both of which collaborated with Jepsen on the new single.

It’s cute but I don’t see this as the official single, but rather a buzz one or just album filler. Give it a spin below.
