…but it probably won’t be.
Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen released the music video for the second single off her new album E.mo.tion today, which excited me because the new single is really good.
It’s obvious Jepesn’s team is trying to push “Run Away with Me” ahead of the album’s U.S. release date (August 21) in order to spark some interest for the project.
The video is pretty standard, though. Jepsen runs around various cities twirling around gleefully and doing karaoke with friends in the footage.
As far as the single goes, it’s amazing. The horn refrain. The suggestive chorus (“Baby, take me to the feeling. I’ll be your sinner and secret when the lights go out. Run away with me.”). The catchy chorus. It’s everything you expect from a Carly Rae Jepsen single.
The unfortunate thing is the album has been out overseas for weeks now, meaning anyone who really wanted to hear the album probably already has.
Still, the cards may not be stacked in her favor but I will remain team #JusticeforCarlyRaeJepsen.
