Carly Rae Jepsen soared the charts with her 2012 hit, “Call Me Maybe.” The song received rave reviews, was played on radio airwaves nationwide and to put it simply: was a catchy pop song we’ll never forget.

Many of us thought that Jepsen was a one hit wonder but she proved her proper place in the music industry with her sophomore album, Kiss released later that same year.

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard from the songstress signed to Interscope/School Boy Records. That all changed quickly with Jepsen’s comeback single, “I Really Like You.”

With 80’s influence, “I Really Like You” is a catchy pop love song fueled by synths that amplify her vocals.

“I Really Like You” is a flirty tune repeating the core of the chorus—"I really, really, really, really, really, really like you.” It tells the tale of liking a guy and wanting to get a little too close too soon.

"Late night watching television/But how'd we get in this position? ... So honey, hold my hand, you like making me wait for it/I feel like I could die walking up to the room,” Jepsen sings. Later adding, “Yeah, we could stay alone, you and me and this temptation/Sipping on your lips, hanging on by a thread, baby."

It’s clear that pure-pop is where Jepsen feels most comfortable and it’s assumed that “I Really Like You” will see its proper place on the charts.

It’s also been confirmed that the music video will be nothing short of epic with guest appearances from Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber. Many critics say the video will go viral. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. For now, listen to the audio of “I Really Like You” here.
