Fresh Music: Carly Rae Jepsen - "This Kiss" + Background Info / by


As you may know, I never fell into the Carly Rae Jepsen "Here's my number, so call me maybe" craze, I've only posted one story about her and it was when she performed at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. Her song was an instant smash it and shot to #1 making it one of the most popular songs of the summer. Now that the hype is over, it's time to move on to single number two.

This new song is called "This Kiss" and it is the official second single from her upcoming album called "Kiss" and will hit stores September 18th. The question is will this song match the success of the first single or will she go down as a one hit wonder? You be the judge and listen to the new song below.




What do you think? I honestly like this a lot better than "Call Me Maybe". I just couldn't get into that song. This one is a tad bit better but I'm not going all ape shit about it. I don't know why she isn't as appealing to me. I can't put my finger on it.

Needless to say, I wanted to inform some of you that this isn't her first time around, nor is this her first album. You may know that she's from Canada and partcipated on their talet show  "Canadian Idol". SHe placed third, losing the competion. But she was still able to release a debut album. It was called "Tug of War".


It was released only on iTunes in Canada back in 2008, and then in June of 2011 it made it's way to iTunes for the U.S. The album spawned four singles and videos; "Sunshine on My Shoulders", "Tug of War", "Bucket" and "Sour Candy" all of which found moderate success on the Canadian Billboard Charts as well as iTunes.

So she's no stranger to success. Don't treat her as a new coming because she's been doing it for a while. Now, she's hit it big in the U.S. with "Call Me Maybe", lets see where she takes it from here. Share your thoughts about the new single "This Kiss". Comment and vote below.
