Carly Rae Jepsen Premieres New Single “I Really Like You” (Really, Really Listen Now)

Carly Rae Jepsen - FOX

Carly Rae Jepsen has a new single, and she hopes you really, really, really, really, really, really like it.

After months of buzz and several days of aggressive hype, Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” is finally available.

Effectively a hybrid of the styles she showcased on sophomore album “Kiss,” “I Really Like You” features the cutesy, girl-next-door charm of “Call Me Maybe” inside the broad, 80s inspired dance-pop production that powered songs like “This Kiss.” Not as infectious as the former, it is not as distant and impersonal as the latter.

Jepsen nonetheless hopes it proves infectious enough to perform more like “Call Me Maybe” than the follow-up singles.

To help make the hope of success a reality, the singer is set to begin working the promotional circuit this week. She will perform “I Really Like You” on the Monday morning edition of ABC’s “Good Morning America” and the Thursday night edition of the network’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

An official video, which features appearances by Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber, is also forthcoming.
