UPDATE: The previews of Carly Rae Jepsen's album, Kiss, have been taken down. Booooo. But we promise it was exciting while it lasted.
I was very worried about my first listen of Carly Rae Jepsen's much anticipated album, Kiss. "Call Me Maybe" is so humungously giant that it seems impossible to top...or even come close to. But snippets from Kiss have hit the internet, and good news, Jep-heads: so far, so great. (Never mind that less-than-stellar Justin Bieber duet, "Beautiful." No one's perfect.)
The fairweather Carly Rae fan might not know that "Call Me Maybe" actually dropped in Canada in February of 2011. Since then, "Maybe" has completely blown up (in case you're new here), and the 26-year-old singer has had a bit of time to cultivate her sound—the outcome of which seems to be pure '80s-inspired pop/electro/synth-laden goodness.
