9.10.12 - New Music - Carly Rae Jepsen
The pop surprise of the year is the success of Canadian pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen. I don’t think anyone can really argue with that one.
The poppiest of the pop out there has debuted the third single from her upcoming US debut album ‘Kiss’ (out September 18th) today, a song easily titled “This Kiss”.
The song is produced by Matthew Koma, an electro/dance/pop artist signed to Jepsen’s Interscope Records who is buzzing wildly in the EDM scene. He actually just had a #1 song on the dance charts this year featuring on the Zedd-produced “Spectrum”.
“This Kiss” is the perfect Carly song; poptastic, radio and child-friendly, and undeniably poppy, the song is everything it needed to be. My fear is that it might be too sugary sweet for US audiences. One bubblegum pop tune per year might be all we can handle.
Anyways, the song is wonderful, and I love everything about it.
