Single Review: Carly Rae Jepsen – Party For One

carly rae jepsen party for one

Carly Rae Jepsen ‘makes love to herself’ on comeback single
Carly Rae Jepsen might not always set the charts on fire, but she has a strong enough fan following to maintain a steady pop career. The Canadian star had her big break in 2011 when her single ‘Call Me Maybe’ became a humongous international hit, but ever since it has been hit and miss. ‘Run Away With Me’ not smashing internationally is still one of the biggest pop injustices of the century, but hey, at least we got the flawless pop album Emotion (2015) and its EP sized follow up Emotion: Side B (2016) to enjoy. A brand new album will follow in 2019, but lead single ‘Party For One’ is out now!

Carly Rae Jepsen sticks to what she knows best on ‘Party For One’; sweet voiced synth pop with an insanely catchy chorus. As if we need or expected anything else from her! More people should have a brain like this woman; how does she keep coming up with all those incredible hooks!? The production of the tune has some similarities to her break out hit, while being just as uptempo. Lyrically, this is one huge break up anthem! She ‘makes love to herself’ on the ‘party for one’ she throws for herself. In the video which also came out to day, we see her check in to a hotel room, while the people in the other rooms all seem to be dealing with a break up by having a party for one. There is fabulous dance moves, throwing stuff at the TV and… dildos. Never a dull moment with Carly Rae!
