Carly Rae Jepsen Is Back On Her Beat With Self-Love Anthem, ‘Party For One’!

She’s back on her beat…

We already knew that the anticipated Carly Rae Jepsen comeback was really, really happening this year. And now, three years after the release of E•MO•TION – the Best Album of 2015, Queen Jepsen has returned at last with her brand new single “Party For One,” co-written by Carly herself and produced by Captain Cuts and HIGHTOWER.

Much like everything that’s come before it, “Party For One” is an unabashedly euphoric punch to the (gay) heart — which is to say it’s a super bright, feel-good and blissfully earnest, ’80s-tinged rush of pop greatness.

Also the lyrics are great — like all of the lyrics. Interestingly, “Party For One” is essentially a self-love anthem — something we haven’t really gotten from Carly before. “You don’t want my love/ If you don’t care about me/ I’ll just dance for myself/ Back on my beat/ Party for one/ If you don’t care about me/ Making love to myself/ Back on my beat…,” she declares. That’s an amazing message, even if it’s a little bit cheesy. She’s done it again!

“To me ‘Party For One‘ is an anthem of what it is to celebrate time with yourself, which is a hard thing for people to really enjoy sometimes, and it’s something I’m learning to do more and more,” Carly said in a statement. “This song represents a lot of what this album is about for me which is romantic love but self-love too.”

The thing about “Party For One” is that it sounds like a Carly Rae Jepsen throb immediately upon first listen, sitting itself nicely in between “Cut To The Feeling,” “Call Me Maybe” and “Gimme Love.” And yet, it still sounds like a fresh and sophisticated pop song for 2018, remaining strictly a pop record without pandering to any particular cheap radio trends.

Welcome back, Queen Carly. We’ve missed you!

Carly Rae Jepsen’s new single “Party For One” is also available on Apple Music and Spotify now!
