The wait for new Carly Rae Jepsen music will be over next month, according to her manager, Scooter Braun. “Her new single is coming in March. I told her that she couldn’t come out with anything unless it was on the level of ‘Call Me Maybe.’ And now we have a new one that is on that level,” Braun told Billboard magazine. Jepsen recently announced the name of her single is “I Really Like You,” and the pop singer addressed her long absence from music, kind of. “I’ve been hiding in forests where one meets a prince and dances till midnight. I’ve been cocooned in my Soho apartment, sipping tea with artists so weird and wonderful that only New York could keep them happy,” Jepsen posted on her website. She added, “I have been hiking to the tippy toes of LA peaks where I’ve said this out loud to no one. I’m ready.”
Jepsen has actually been on Broadway for the last four months, playing the role of Ella in Rodger + Hammerstein’s Cinderella. The pop singer filmed the music video for her new single last week, and the video will feature special appearances by Justin Bieber and Tom Hanks. Bieber and Jepsen share the same manager, and so his appearance in her video is not too surprising. A Tom Hanks appearance may be a little shocking, but the actor attended Braun’s wedding last year.
Carly Rae Jepsen put out her debut studio album, Tug of War, in 2008. In 2012, the pop singer dropped her sophomore project, Kiss. The Kiss album produced five singles including “Call Me Maybe,” “Good Time,” “This Kiss,” “Almost Said It,” and “Tonight I’m Getting Over You.” “Call Me Maybe” was a huge success in the US and internationally, and it went to Number 1 in fifteen countries. The record has sold over ten million copies worldwide, and it was the biggest-selling digital song of 2012. Jepsen’s next single was not as big as “Call Me Maybe,” but it still made an impressive run on the music charts. The record peaked at Number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it went to the top of the charts in Canada, South Korea, and New Zealand.
