Yesterday, maybe in celebration of labelmate Justin Bieber’s 21st birthday, Carly Rae Jepsen released the first single from her forthcoming album. It’s called “I Really Like You,” and it is an absolute beast. 

So that’s your competition, Carly Rae. I’m rooting for “I Really Like You,” and not just because I wrote thousands of words tracking the rise of “Call Me Maybe” a few years back. Any of these other songs could catch fire as we approach the start of pool party season, or we could be thrilled by the most exciting song of all: the one we don’t expect.
