Saturday Night Live likes Carly Rae Jepsen so much they asked her to make her debut on the show without an official announcement of a new album. We suspect five-timers club member Tom Hanks might have put in a good word.
Dressed in black, Jepsen kicked things off with her latest single “I Really Like You,” sans Hanks unfortunately.
Looking a bit more mature since her “Call Me Maybe” days, Jepsen played it coy for the live performance where she makes it clear, she really, really, really, really, really wants you. Do you want her too? We sure do!
Jepsen debuted a new song called “All That” with help from producer Ariel Rechstaid on bass and Dev Hynes on guitar, who, she told Radio.com in a recent interview made her sound like “old school Madonna.”
This track, which she called “My heart song of the album” on Twitter, has a bit of a ’80s feel that the Material Girl could appreciate. “Just let me in your arms,” she sings sweetly. “Show me if you want me, if I’m all that.”
Jepsen has never sounded more mature. Anyone who wasn’t calling her before is definitely calling her now.
